Chelsea defender Kurt Zouma would fit in at Wolves and is the type of player they need, says Express & Star reporter Luke Hatfield.
Zouma is one name Chelsea are thought to be open to selling this summer and Wolves have been credited with an interest.
According to Telefoot journalist Julien Maynard, the Midlands club have already made a move for the 26-year-old, though he has rebuffed their advances. However, there is still an expectation that he will leave in the current transfer window.
And if Wolves can end up persuading Zouma to join, then Hatfield believes Bruno Lage will be getting a player his squad desperately needs.
“Zouma is obviously a good player,” Hatfield said to FFC. “I think he’s impressed with Chelsea and it was a spell at Everton before then.
“He’s a player who I think would probably fit in at Wolves; he’s probably that type of player [they’re missing]. They do need another centre-back.”
While it is currently looking unlikely, if Wolves do manage to land Zouma, then they will be getting a central defender who is particularly strong in the air.
