Last summer, Atletico Madrid signed Jonny Otto from Celta Vigo and immediately loaned him out to Wolverhampton Wanderers.
The 24-year-old, who can operate as left-back and right-back, has started in 21 matches in all competitions for the English outfit, out of which 19 of them have been in the league.
According to Mundo Deportivo, the Premier League side are ‘delighted’ with the defender’s performance, who has been one of the regular starters under Nuno Espírito Santo this season.
As a part of the loan deal, Wolves don’t have the option to make it permanent in the summer.
It’s claimed that they have contacted the Europa League winners and expressed their interest in making the defender’s stay at the Molineux Stadium permanent.
The Spanish capital club have listened to the proposal they received for Jonny, but they are clear that they do not want to sell him as Diego Simeone wants to include the player in his plans for the next season.
However, it’s also stated an exorbitant offer could change things.
In addition, there’s another way, perhaps quicker. Atletico want rid of Nikola Kalinic to make room on the wage bill for Alvaro Morata, if they can’t get rid of the Croatian it’s stated they could see the back of Jonny permanently, although it’s not clear how that would help from a wage perspective.
