Wolves favourites to land Leander Dendoncker

Wolverhampton Wanderers appear to be leading the race for an in-demand international this summer as they continue to surprise many with their transfer business.

The Molineux outfit have added a number of players to their squad already during the transfer window with the likes of Joao Moutinho and Rui Patricio joining the club on a permanent basis.

However, it appears that Nuno Espirito Santo has not finished with his business, as reports in Belgium are claiming one international midfielder is high on his radar and could be about to arrive in Wolverhampton.

According to a report by DH, Wolves are set to complete a deal for Anderlecht’s Leander Dendoncker, with the 23-year-old thought to be heading to England to sign a contract with the newly-promoted side.

It is believed he will join for a fee between €12million and €15million, whilst super agent Jorge Mendes is understood to be heavily involved in a deal.

It was understood earlier on Wednesday morning that Crystal Palace were in the hot-seat for the Belgium international, with Het Belang Van Limburg making the claim that the club were already in talks.

The Verdict:

It is no real surprise that movements have happened so quickly with the transfer deadline fast approaching.

Wolves will be delighted to land Dendoncker, should he arrive at Molineux and not Selhurst Park, as he will be able to offer them plenty in midfield.

With a fee of between €12m and €15m being touted, it could well be a bargain deal for the player who represented his country at this summer’s World Cup.

Yet this recent update is sure to come as a blow to Palace manager Roy Hodgson, as it looks for all the world that the Eagles will miss out on their transfer target.
