Diego Llorente has impressed for Real Sociedad, since joining them from Real Madrid in 2017.
The centre-back’s performances have seen him draw attention from clubs across Europe and earlier this month, reports from Spain suggested La Real ‘fear’ Everton would make an approach for the 25-year-old.
Wolverhampton Wanderers’ interest in the defender is talked about on the front page of today’s Mundo Deportivo (Gipuzkoa edition).
It’s claimed Nuno Espírito Santo’s side submitted a €25m bid for the former Los Blancos man. However, Wolves saw their proposal rejected by Sociedad.
A part of Llorente’s future transfer fee would go to Real Madrid and they also have an option to re-sign the player for €25m. He still has contract at Sociedad until 2022 and is valued at €40m.
In addition to this, Llorente himself was not ready to move away from Real Sociedad. He believes continuing with his current employer will improve his chances of making it to Spain’s squad for next summer’s European championship, although Jonny Castro has shown at Wolves that they have a platform for players too.
