While Arsenal might have been ahead of the curve for Brandon Soppy, they aren’t the club who are making the first move for the defender.
Back in May, it was announced Unai Emery’s side had sent a scout to the U17 Euros to watch the right-back in action for France, yet it’s Wolverhampton Wanderers who appear to be keenest these days.
According to L’Equipe, the Rennes youngster is being followed by three clubs in Europe who could offer him a decent wage and an opportunity to grow.
Wolves are among the trio and are joined by Monaco, who are all about hoovering young French talent, and RB Leipzig, known around Europe to give youth a chance when they’re good enough.
It’s stated Wolves and Monaco already tried to get him before he signed his first professional contract in October of last year, and are ‘following him closely’.
In fact, one of three sides is said to be ‘ready to make an offer of €8m’ for the youngster, but there are no guarantees the Ligue 1 side would be willing to let him go.
As things stand, Soppy is fighting for a space in the first-team squad as Hamari Traoré, but has yet to make his first appearance at professional level.
There’s also no indication that should Wolverhampton come knocking, he’d want to leave.
We’ll truly have to wait and see what happens.
