Wolves: Rayan Ait-Nouri eyed up by Lyon

Wolves: Rayan Ait-Nouri eyed up by Lyon -Wolves News

Lyon are interested in signing influential Wolves left-back Rayan Ait-Nouri in the summer transfer window, according to a fresh transfer report.

The Lowdown: Ait-Nouri shines for Wolves

The 21-year-old has developed into a hugely impressive young player at Molineux, making 23 appearances in the Premier League last season and averaging 2.8 tackles per game, the joint-most of anyone in the squad.

Ait-Nouri has been hailed as ‘fantastic‘ by Wolves manager Bruno Lage and, having been their highest-rated player to start more than four league games last term (as per WhoScored), he has proven to be an important member of the team, and will surely continue to be.

That’s if the youngster stays put, though, with a new report suggesting that he might not be in the Black Country for much longer.

The Latest: Lyon keen on Ait-Nouri

According to Media Foot [via Sport Witness], Lyon see Ait-Nouri as a ‘very interesting’ proposition, as they seek to bolster their defensive options ahead of next season.

The report explains that the Ligue 1 outfit see it as ‘trying to catch a big fish’, such is Ait-Nouri’s reputation, although several clubs are thought to be interested in the 21-year-old, for whom Wolves are willing to entertain offers.

The Verdict: Potential big loss

Keeping hold of your best players is always vital and Ait-Nouri fits into that category at Wolves, considering how important a figure he has become, both at present and hopefully in the long-term future.

However, the 21-year-old’s head could be turned by a club which regularly offers European football, so the Old Gold may find it hard to keep hold of one of their most prized assets.

Losing Ait-Nouri would undoubtedly be a big blow to Wolves, but his current deal doesn’t expire until 2026, so Fosun should at least be able to demand huge money for his services if they are to part ways with the youngster.
