A couple of weeks ago we covered claims from Germany surrounding the situation of reported Wolves target Daniel Opare.
Wolves were keen in the January transfer window, when Opare was said to be available for around €3m and interesting a number of clubs around Europe. Then the window closed, or least most of the European windows closed, and Opare remained at Augsburg with a contract ending in June.
The 27 year old was then photographed having a meeting with Schalke officials and this annoyed Augsburg, who sent him to train alone.
Feeling the fullback was already trying to sort out his next destination, and leave on a free in the summer, the German media suggested a move was still on the agenda.
Augsburg could try and sell the player to a country with a window still open, like Russia or China. So whilst the German, English and most European windows were shut, there was still hope of a transfer fee.
However, Kicker now report that doesn’t seem likely to happen. Augsburg can’t force Opare to move somewhere he doesn’t want, and if he prefers to leave on a free then he’s entitled to do so.
This will likely be of interest to a number of clubs, and if the claims of Wolves interest were true then Nuno Espirito Santo’s side are likely to be one of those keen.
