Wolves reportedly now want to clinch a quick deal to sign Kilmarnock central defender and ‘big, big’ talent Charlie McArthur.
The Lowdown: Breakthrough season
McArthur is enjoying a breakthrough season in Scottish football, having already made three senior appearances for his club at just 16 years of age.
His former manager Tommy Wright was full of praise form him earlier this season, claiming that he has a ‘big, big future‘ after handing him his debut, while he has also hailed McArthur as a ‘dream to work with‘.
Should Wolves sign McArthur?
Nonetheless, it is no surprise to see clubs now circling around for his signature.
The Latest: Wolves want quick deal
As per The Daily Record, both the Midlands club and West Ham United are preparing moves and ‘want to clinch a quick deal’ for McArthur, as Brighton and Hove Albion also look to table a £275,000 bid for the starlet.
The Seagulls have been tracking him for ‘some time’ and have seen him play for Scotland’s U17s, of whom he is the captain.
The Verdict: Get it done
Given the impending offer from Brighton, the Molineux faithful need to act fast if they are going to get a deal for McArthur over the line.
He is clearly a bright prospect that could thrive in the Academy, until Bruno Lage is ready to call him up to the first team.
Nonetheless, at 16, he has so much potential, and so other teams may well join the race in the summer.
