Wolverhampton Wanderers have joined the race to sign Besiktas defender Domagoj Vida and have submitted a £16million bid, according to Turkish news outlet Sabah.
The 29-year-old centre-back only signed for Besiktas in January but has struggled to settle at the Turkish club.
The Croatian defender impressed with his World Cup performances, scoring his country’s second goal against Russia in the Quarter Finals and was a rock at the heart of the defence as his country reached the final of the tournament.
A number of Premier League clubs have expressed their interest in the hardman, including Tottenham Hotspur, Liverpool, West Ham and Arsenal but now Wolves have entered the fray and have reportedly bid £16million for the defender.

Vida was one of the stars of the World Cup and the competition for his signature has been fierce this summer.
If Wolves managed to snap him up it could be their biggest coup this summer, even eclipsing deals for Rui Patricio and Joao Moutinho.
He would add serious physicality and know-how at the heart of the Wolves defence and would help them as they look to cement their place in the top flight this season.
