Wolves are believed to be one of six clubs who are interested in signing Reading captain Liam Moore, according to reports.
Fighting over Moore
The 22-year-old skipper has been one of the Championship’s outstanding performers so far during the current campaign, playing a huge part in guiding his side to the top of the division as they aim to return to the Premier League for the first time since 2013.
Moore has provided one assist from the first seven league games and has not only started every match but played every minute so far (TransferMarkt). As a result, he has attracted a host of clubs in the top flight who would fancy signing him when the transfer window opens up again.
According to TEAMtalk, Wolves are joined by Leicester City, West Ham United, Crystal Palace, Southampton and Newcastle United in showing an interest in Moore’s services.
The report added that Reading are keen to tie him down with a new long-term contract and are hoping that he could be persuaded to extend his future at the Madejski Stadium, with three years left to run on his current deal (via TransferMarkt).
A bold move from Nuno
The £4.95m-rated defender is a former Leicester player, which may naturally boost the odds in him moving back to the King Power Stadium.
Bringing him to Molineux would boost Nuno’s strength in depth at the bac, but having never made a Premier League appearance at the age of 27 (TransferMarkt), perhaps Moore would be nothing more than a squad player in the top flight.
It is hard to imagine that he could break into Wolves’ first team and challenge the likes of Conor Coady, Romain Saiss or Wily Boly, all of whom are firm Nuno favourites, for a centre-back role in the first XI.
Time will tell what Nuno opts to do in the transfer market, depending on the position in which they find themselves after the typically busy Christmas period.
