While players around the world have all headed out to join up with their international teams this week, clubs are busy doing other business.
Some of them are attending conferences, notably the WyScout one that’s taking place in the Netherlands over the next two days.
Wolverhampton Wanderers are one such club, and Tuttomercatoweb managed to catch up with their chief scout John Marshall for a chat about all things transfer related.
They particularly asked him about Wolves interest in both Franck Kessiè and Dejan Kulusevski, two players who Wolves have been linked with this week.
Kessiè was a player Wolves were after during the summer and a report today suggested they were ready to pay €20m to make a move happen in January.
Kulusevksi, meanwhile, was linked earlier this week, with reports that Wolves were ready to offer €17-18m to try and sign the youngster ahead of several other clubs. Marshall, though, has now poured cold water on both of those rumours.
“There was an interest (in Kessiè), but there was never a real negotiation,” he told the website when asked about the midfielder.
“I don’t think (there will be interest in January), we have so many players in midfield.
“I also read this indiscretion (about Kulusevski), but it is not true. He is not a player that interests us.”
