The Italian media has revealed Wolverhampton Wanderers’ interest in Juventus defender Koni De Winter.

TuttoMercatoWeb highlights the player’s loan season at Genoa, claiming he’s among those ‘performing best’ at the club.

De Winter was also called up to make his international debut with Belgium, and his good form seems to be drawing interest from clubs as well.

It’s said Wolves ‘like him’ and have been watching him for ‘several weeks’, having scouted the player on ‘more than one occasion’.

What the English side must be aware of is that the situation isn’t exactly simple, because Genoa are about to buy him from Juventus via an obligatory clause.

Only two more appearances during his loan are needed for that to be triggered, and he’ll be signing permanently in an €8m move, plus bonuses.

That means Wolves will probably have to negotiate directly with Genoa, who’ll need to be convinced to sell the player so early after the purchase is completed.

Right now, he’s valued by Transfermarkt at €10m, and we shall see if the Molineux side will really place an offer on the table.
