Despite being at the centre of the mistake that led to Atlético Madrid scoring the opening goal of their 3-0 Europa League final win against Marseille, André Zambo-Anguissa’s stock hasn’t fallen all that much.
Once targeted by the likes of West Brom (earlier this year), the defensive midfielder has enjoyed a very good season with the Ligue 1 side, and while the Baggies won’t be getting him anymore after their relegation to the Championship, another club in the Premier League are keen.
That side is said to be West Brom’s local rivals Wolverhampton Wanderers, according to Espoirs du Foot in France, who reported on Monday morning that Nuno Espirito Santo is interested in a number of Marseille players, including Zambo-Anguissa and right-back Bouna Sarr.
The Cameroonian midfielder has yet to discuss his future, but it’s worth pointing out the defender has already made it very clear he would be remaining with Marseille next season after interest from Leicester City in January.
The fact that Wolves are after the pair isn’t all that surprising as they’ve been two of the more consistent performers for the French team, but the fact the Ligue 1 club will be playing in the Europa League next year should be taken into consideration.
The promoted side aren’t in a position to offer European football as things stand, and it could mean they’d need to offer slightly more wage wise to convince the pair to change clubs.
It’s just Wolves interest at the moment, so nothing to get too excited about, but we’ll be keeping an eye on things over the coming weeks.
