Wolves haven’t had too many issues in their first season back in the Premier League but one cause for concern may be the inconsistent displays of some of their defenders.
However, with Marca Argentina claiming the club are showing an interest in Nicolas Otamendi, their problems might be about to be solved.
Reacting to two separate threads on Twitter where the news was shared, Wolves fans were buzzing over a potential move for the player.
One supporter instantly claimed that he had to be better than Ryan Bennett, whilst another simply declared that they’d take him at the club.
A further supporter made reference to the wages the Argentine defender might be on at City, claiming he wanted the player to sign but finances could prove a sticking point in the deal. With the player rated at £27m according to Transfermarkt, Wolves will likely have to pay a considerable fee, too.
Otamendi was a keymember of the City side that won the league last season but has only played a bit-part role this term, making 14 Premier League starts.
Wolves have made a resounding return to form over the last week. Having gone three games without a win they’ve now beaten Arsenal and Watford to cement their top-seven hopes.
When asked their thoughts about a possible move for the 31-year-old, here’s what Wolves supporters said.
Obviously. I don’t see him as a top defender, certainly not City’s level but he’d certainly be a good addition to us!

Absolutely, not sure how it would impact the wage structure though as he’s probably on silly money at City.
