Wolves have made an offer to free agent centre-back Jason Denayer, according to reliable journalist Liam Keen.
The Lowdown: Centre-back needed
With Willy Boly looking nailed on to join Nottingham Forest in the coming days, a replacement central defender is needed at Molineux before Thursday night.
A number of players have emerged as potential targets, including West Ham stalwart Craig Dawson, but Bruno Lage hasn’t yet brought someone in.
Now, a new target has emerged as Fosun desperately scramble to get someone through the door before 11pm on Thursday.
The Latest: Wolves initiate Denayer discussions
“Breaking: Wolves have made an approach to sign Belgium international centre-back Jason Denayer. The 27-year-old is currently a free agent after his contract at Lyon came to an end. Wolves have offered a three-year deal.”
The Verdict: Good option for Wanderers
Former national manager Marc Wilmots has even said he is ‘like Eden Hazard’, in terms of his elite mentality and composure in big moments, something that certainly wouldn’t hurt to have around the squad at the Sir Jack Hayward Training Ground.
At 27, the former Manchester City centre-back has plenty of time remaining in his peak years, and could battle the likes of Max Kilman and Nathan Collins for regular playing time, or even accompany them if Bruno Lage reverts to a back three at some point.
The fact that he is available on a free transfer also makes it a nearly risk-free signing.
