Wolves fans react to Domagoj Vida link and latest Croatia display

According to Turkish journalist Safak Malatya on his Twitter account, Wolverhampton Wanderers are interested in signing Besiktas centre-back Domagoj Vida, rated at £6.3m by Transfermarkt, this summer, and Wolves fans have been quick to react to the rumour and the Croatia international’s latest 2018 World Cup display.

The west Midlands outfit’s manager Nuno Espirito Santo, who should be targeting a move for another 28-year-old World Cup defender as an upgrade on Matt Doherty, may well be looking to strengthen his central defensive options ahead of the club’s Premier League return, and while he has signed Willy Boly on a permanent basis he may not be finished there.

Vida, who shone in his nation’s brilliant 3-0 win against Argentina on Thursday night which ensured they qualified for the knockout stages with a group game to spare, has only been with the Turkish giants since January but could already be on the move.

Wolves supporters have taken to social media to give their thoughts on the rumour and Vida’s performance, and while one said “class defender had Messi in his pocket”, another said he “would complement Coady and Boly”.
