Last week we covered several claims from Mexico about Wolves making moves to sign Edson Alvarez.
Medio Tiempo reported that according to people close to the player, Wolves had contacted America to know the conditions of a deal and were expected to make an effort.
The defender has recently renewed, and it was made clear that the Premier League club would have to pay over US$10m to trigger his release clause.
The idea was for Nuno Espirito Santo to improve his Wolves squad, with the club facing European football next season, and 21 year old Alvarez was seen as a real target.
Then it was claimed that Eduardo Hernandez, Chicharito’s father, was trying to build a move to Europe for the America player, and had enlisted the help of Jorge Mendes. Therefore, it was no surprise that Wolves were linked.
America’s director of sport Santiago Baños has been quizzed on the claims and is quoted by Nacion Deportes as saying: “There have been approaches, obviously a player who has been followed for a long time, but there has not been an offer, obviously I have had meetings with his representative and we are in talks, but a formal offer in which we have an established amount, not yet.”
He didn’t mention Wolves directly, although Nacion Deportes did.
