Alex Scott is “one of Wolves’ major transfer targets this summer”
Wolves are interested in signing hugely exciting Bristol City youngster Alex Scott at the end of the season, according to reliable journalist Steve Madeley.
The Lowdown: Scott a huge talent
At just 19, Scott has already become a very important player for City, catching the eye with dominant and mature performances in the middle of the park.
He has started 36 Championship matches this season, scoring once and registering four assists, but impressing with his all-round game both on and off the ball.
Scott’s rise at City certainly isn’t going unnoticed currently, with a number of Premier League clubs linked with making a move for him during the summer transfer window, from Champions League-chasing Newcastle United to relegation-threatened West Ham, among others.
It looks as though Wolves are one of the clubs in the mix, however, following a new update regarding the teenager’s future at his current club.
The Latest: Wolves keen on signing
Taking to Twitter, The Athletic‘s Madeley claimed that Scott is very much on Wanderers’ radar ahead of a potential summer move:
“Alex Scott looks set to be one of Wolves’ major transfer targets this summer. And he looks like a player with a massive future.”
The Verdict: Would be a major coup
Scott really does look like a special young talent with a massive future, so the idea of him ending up at Wolves is certainly an exciting prospect for supporters.
He is already such a rounded footballer, despite his tenders years, winning an average of 1.2 aerial duels per game in the Championship this season, as well as 2.1 tackles and 1.2 dribbles per match.
Scott is both supremely gifted and a tenacious figure – Pep Guardiola has described him as ‘unbelievable’, which is high praise indeed – so Wolves must do all they can to acquire his signature, with long-term planning something that is vital, rather than simply focusing on the here-and-now with experienced signings.
Granted, he may need a little time to adjust to life in the Premier League, coming in as a squad player to begin with, but the speed of his rise means it would be no shock if he was a key figure under Julen Lopetegui in no time at all.
Scott already has 12 caps to his name for England’s Under-19s, scoring once for his country, and an Under-21s call-up surely isn’t too far away now, given the level of his performances for City throughout the 2022/23 campaign.
