Two Premier League clubs have made official bids for the America defender Edson Alvarez, according to the Mexican press today.
Newspaper Record says that West Ham United and Wolverhampton Wanderers have both made formal offers for the player, along with Dutch side Ajax.
The only amount revealed is the one coming from Amsterdam. Record says that after offering €10m in January, Ajax have now put €15m on the table.
Meanwhile, Wolves would be keen on offering a little bit more, ‘with a better projection in the subject of image and marketing’. They take Raul Jimenez as an example of success in the Premier League, and say that’s the reason why the Molineux side lead the race.
There are no details about West Ham’s offer, as all Record says is that they’ve ‘joined’ the battle for the defender.
Record continues to claim that the highest bidder is taking Alvarez, and America’s board considers that clubs could offer up to US$17m for the player.
The newspaper had previously claimed the player would like to move to the Premier League, but once again, it should all depend on the biggest offer. It’s said that Italian clubs are interested as well, yet no official bids have been made so far.
