Of all the Wolves players repeatedly linked with exits from the club in recent months, Leander Dendoncker hasn’t really been among them.
Taking his time to battle his way into the team after his move from RSC Anderlecht, the 25 year old is now a regular under Nuno Espirito Santo. His versatility makes him a great asset for any squad, and he’s played in both defence and midfield for Wolves this season.
Gazzetta dello Sport report he’s a ‘new’ name for Lazio, and has moved onto the Roman club’s transfer agenda. That’s understandable, with Lazio likely looking for quality reinforcements should their Champions League space for next season be confirmed.
Yet Lazio would have to convince both Wolves and Dendoncker, which could be hard for them. The Belgian long talked about his desire for Premier League football before he made the move, and may be reluctant to give up on it so soon.
Gazzetta say Dendoncker’s preferred position is midfield, so perhaps Lazio could tempt him with a firm role there. However, given his versatility is seen as a reason for interest, that could be unlikely.
Nuno would also likely be against the idea.
