According to GazzaMercato, Wolverhampton Wanderers have switched their interest from Joao Cancelo to AC Milan full-back Ignazio Abate.
According to GazzaMercato, Wolves are now looking at Ignazio Abate who is entering the final year of his contract.
Wolves fan will be understandably disappointed that they missed out on blockbuster signing Cancelo, but Abate would offer experience and composure on the right side of their defence, at a much lower price.
Having amassed over 200 Serie A appearances for the Rossoneri, Abate still has plenty to offer and would help shore up the Wolves back line.
He may not be a superstar wing-back bombing forward and used as much as an attacking outlet as a defensive one, but he will be a solid and sensible option that would serve Wolves well in the top-flight.
