Wolves: Donny van de Beek set to move in January -Wolves Transfer Rumours

Wolves have been boosted in their efforts to sign Manchester United midfielder Donny van de Beek, with the Dutchman now set to leave the club this month.

The Lowdown: Van de Beek struggles at United

The 24-year-old moved to Old Trafford back in 2020, having been a key man for the Ajax team that reached the 2019 Champions League semi-finals.

Van de Beek has had a nightmare time of things at United, however, making just 50 appearances in all competitions, mostly from the bench, scoring and assisting only twice apiece.

He appears to be completely out of favour under Ralf Rangnick and a January exit looks to be on the cards.

The Latest: Wolves given fresh boost

According to Algemeen Dagblad [via Sport Witness], it ‘seems inevitable’ that Van de Beek will move on to pastures new before the current transfer window ends. His situation has become ‘more and more hopeless’, leading him to pursue a fresh challenge.

Wolves are mentioned in the report, as are Everton and Newcastle United, as Bruno Lage eyes up a move for the 19-time capped Netherlands international, who has been hailed as ‘close to perfect’ by Owen Hargreaves in the past.

The Verdict: Worth the risk

Van de Beek’s reputation may have been damaged during an awful spell in Manchester but he can’t have become a bad footballer overnight and still has so much to offer.

At 24, his peak years should still be ahead of him, while 75 goal contributions in 175 appearances for Ajax shows how productive he can be in the final third.

Van de Beek could provide Wolves with the goal threat that the likes of Joao Moutinho and Ruben Neves often don’t bring, adding an extra dimension in the middle of the park to the Portuguese pair’s control and tempo.

Perhaps the funds for a move could be available through the expected sale of Adama Traore to Tottenham.
