Dejan Kulusevski is a name which has been edged towards the rumour mill in recent weeks, and now it’s Wolves’ turn to get involved.
The 19 year old is owned by Atalanta and is spending this season on loan at Parma, who are tenth in Serie A. TMW report Arsenal have been watching him for months, ‘intrigued by the impact’ of the Swede.
There’s been ‘surveys’ from the Gunners, which normally means asking his club the potential cost and viability of a deal, and approaches to Kulusevski’s entourage which would be to find out if the player is up for it.
Arsenal’s situation is ‘still in progress’, however, TMW believe it’s Wolves who are pushing ahead. Nuno Espirito Santo’s club have formulated a bid, and it’s claimed a ‘Wolves offer is ready’.
The amount is put at €15m, and it’s stated as fact: ‘a proposal for 15 million euros will be sent’
For Atalanta, that figure is ‘insufficient’, and they want €25m, which could increase depending on performance.
Just under a month ago, the player’s agent Stefano Sem was asked about interest from Manchester City during the last summer window, and said: “For elegance I don’t name names, I only say that they were both Italian and foreign teams.
“He’s a Swedish international, he’s a player who has a more international market than other guys even for a basic mentality and culture discourse. It’s clear that he’s a player that even at the national team, when he plays, it’s easier to follow than his other teammates who play for the Italian national team.
“The Italians have the ambition to play for Azzurri and maybe get in a big Italian club, a foreigner wants the top: if the top is in Italy good, if it’s abroad he goes abroad.”
One to keep an eye on, with there likely to be efforts made in upcoming windows.
