The lowdown: Rise to stardom
Born in London, the youngster has taken a somewhat roundabout pathway to the elite level. Having spent time at Crystal Palace and Tottenham as a fledgling teenager, the attacker opted to move to Netherlands in 2018 on a free transfer.
The 20-year-old graduated through the ranks at PSV to make his senior debut in 2019 before establishing himself as a regular feature for the Eredivisie outfit.
After making 70 first-team outings in Eindhoven, Madueke could now be about to return to the Premier League, with the Molineux club among those credited with an interest…
The latest: Wolves tracking Madueke
It’s claimed that the Old Gold, Leicester, Leeds, Newcastle, Everton and ‘several’ of the so-called big six English top-flight teams are ‘tracking him’ ahead of a potential swoop this summer.
The report added that the much-coveted youngster, who was dubbed a ‘crazy talent’ by football talent scout Jacek Kulig following a standout performance against FC Midtjylland last season, ‘could leave’ Eindhoven, and that PSV ‘face a battle’ to keep their forward amid increasing interest in him.
The verdict: At all costs
Signing a player of Madueke’s sky-high potential would be a sensational coup for the Molineux hierarchy as the Midlands club attempt to plan for the future whilst also giving Bruno Lage the tools to compete in the short-term.
Operating exclusively as a right winger, the exciting youth international scored nine times and provided six assists in 34 appearances across all competitions last season, demonstrating a clinical end product which has so often been missing from out-of-favour wide man Adama Traore.
Should Wolves sign Madueke?
Heralded as being ‘a bit like’ Phil Foden by former England under 21-boss Aidy Boothroyd, the £16.2m-valued Madueke should be regarded as a top target for Wolves at almost any price, particularly if Traore leaves Molineux for good.
