Wolves: Wanderers have bid for Benoit Badiashile rejected

Wolves: Wanderers have bid for Benoit Badiashile rejected -Premier League

Wolves have reportedly seen a big-money bid for Monaco defender Benoit Badiashile rejected but a deal may still be possible in the future.

The Lowdown: January reinforcements possible

Wanderers have enjoyed an impressive first half of the season, sitting in the top half of the Premier League and still basking in the glory of the 1-0 win away to Manchester United earlier this week.

It could be that reinforcements come in during the January transfer window, as Bruno Lage looks to strengthen his squad ahead of the coming months and really challenge for a European place.

Defence could be an area Wolves look at improving further given the injury issues surrounding Willy Boly and Yerson Mosquera, with youngster Dion Sanderson needing to return from a loan spell at Birmingham to try and fix that problem.

The Latest: Badiashile bid rejected

According to L’Equipe [via Sport Witness], Wolves’ €30million (£25m) offer for Badiashile has been turned down by Monaco and the defender ‘does not intend’ to leave the Ligue 1 side currently.

That being said, the situation is not thought to be considered a ‘closed file’ and a summer move could possibly come to fruition if the right offer arrives.

The Verdict: Exciting long-term signing

At 20, Badishile would be a long-term acquisition for Wolves if a deal happens, and a hugely exciting one at that.

The 6 foot 3 tall Frenchman has already made 11 appearances in Ligue 1 this season, not to mention four in the Europa League, averaging a whopping 4.3 aerial duel wins per game in the latter.

Badiashile could come in and be an initial backup option for the likes of Max Kilman, Conor Coady and Romain Saiss, eventually forcing his way into Lage’s regular plans in the future.

In other news, some Wolves fans have gone wild over training ground footage that has emerged. Read more here.
