Wolves have had a pretty underwhelming January transfer window when it comes to adding new first-team players to their squad, with Hayao Kawabe and Sang-bin Jeong arriving and then being loaned out to Grasshopper Club Zurich shortly after.
However, it seems as though the Old Gold have their eyes on securing the signing of a potential future star that has been tearing it up at youth level with his current club.
According to a recent report from Foot Mercato (via Sport Witness) Wolves are one of the three teams that have shown an interest in signing 18-year-old Paris Saint-Germain winger Djeidi Gassama alongside Hamburg and FC Basel.
The winger joined PSG’s youth ranks from fellow French club Stade Brest back in 2019 and has managed to rack up five goals and three assists in just six UEFA Youth League games last year, showing the attacking talent he has and how much of an exciting young prospect he is.
As a young winger that has experience of playing for a top European club at youth level, a move for Gassama from Wolves could be seen as being the club’s potential long-term replacement for Adama Traore, who has recently returned to Barcelona after working his way through their youth ranks before eventually moving to Wolves.
In addition to that, with an ability to score goals, provide assists and play across a number of attacking positions on the pitch, the 18-year-old certainly has the capabilities of developing his game and becoming an exciting player for Wolves in the future.
That’s much in the same way that Traore was, who was also capable of playing in numerous of attacking positions.
Moving forward, if Wolves are able to strike a deal to bring Gassama to Molineux before the end of the day and he follows in the same footsteps as Chiquinho, who made the move to the Midlands club earlier in the window, this could be a mouth-watering transfer for the Old Gold if the player can grow and acclimatise himself to English football positively.
