The Lowdown: Recent interest
Earlier this week, journalist Cesar Luis Merlo revealed Wolves’ interest in the 19-year-old, having claimed that the Old Gold were negotiating a deal for the youngster.
It was said that a move would only be agreed with a deal in principle, meaning that the player would remain in Argentina for the remainder of the season.
However, new information has now emerged regarding the Old Gold’s pursuit of the Argentina under-20 international.
The Latest: Latest update
According to a fresh report from Olé (via Sport Witness), Velez Sarsfield have confirmed that Wolves have made ‘informal contact’ with them over a potential move for the midfielder. However, the club have made it clear that an official bid is yet to be made.
The Buenos Aires outfit asserted that they have no plans to let any players leave right now with the Copa Libertadores semi-finals quickly approaching.
Olé also report that Perrone’s camp have claimed that the youngster is being monitored by ‘many clubs’ and that Wolves’ interest ‘exists and is concrete’.
The Verdict: Promising talent
Just this week, R.D. Football Scout analysed Perrone’s game against CA Sarmiento, in which the 19-year-old had a 100% long-ball accuracy and a 95% pass accuracy, making him the team’s most accurate passer.
Additionally, the midfielder recovered the ball seven times in that match, also adding a goal to top off his fine display.
Is Neves the best midfielder at Wolves?
As a result, the football scout deemed Perrone a “wonderful talent who combines attacking intelligence and defensive commitment.”
Therefore, with incredible promise at such a young age, this could end up being a brilliant long-term swoop for Wolves, who are clearly looking to build an ambitious squad for the future.
