As the America midfielder Edson Álvarez continues to get linked to a move to Europe, more clubs become involved in the rumours, and others seem to be ruled out.
Several stories from the Mexican press have recently claimed Wolverhampton Wanderers were following the player. One said there had been contact between clubs, and another claimed the player was offered to the Molineux side.
Now Mexican outlet Esto has an exclusive story saying that the 21-year-old currently has four clubs who want to take him out of his country.
It’s claimed that there are ‘no concrete offers’ on the table for now, but the possibility of his departure in the summer is real.
Esto writes that ‘far’ from the recent news which links the player to Wolverhampton, Alvarez is also attracting the interest from Ajax. So they apparently can’t confirm if the Wolves interest is real, even though they’ve spoken to one of his representatives.
Jorge Sigala, who’s an official at the agency which takes care of Alvarez’s career, has spoken to Esto and sounded pretty optimistic about a move to European football.
“There seems to be something. Nothing concrete. America is in good position that if there’s a real and good offer, it can happen.”
The word in Mexico is that Alvarez has a release clause of about US$10m, which shouldn’t be difficult for European clubs to afford. But perhaps Wolves aren’t even in this race, despite all the claims.
