At what football club's academy did former Wolves captain Conor Coady graduate from?

Romano tweeted: “Manchester United are trying to find a solution for Wan-Bissaka in order to let him leave.

“Wolves, West Ham and Crystal Palace remain interested. MUFC Main priority on right-back situation remains to extend Dalot’s contract. Talks will take place soon.”

He could replace Semedo

Julen Lopetegui is only just getting settled in at Molineux but faces a difficult challenge to turn Wolves’ season around after a disappointing start to their Premier League campaign.

The side have found themselves rock bottom in the league table following a run of poor performances over their first 15 outings – collecting just ten points from a possible 45 so far and scoring the fewest number of goals in the entirety of the top flight.

As a result, the newly-appointed manager could be given a golden opportunity to strengthen his squad in the new year when the transfer window re-opens and Wan-Bissaka could be a great piece of business for the Midlands club.

The £90k-per-week Man United ace – who was hailed “excellent” by his club captain Harry Maguire – has found himself out of favour at Old Trafford since the arrival of Erik Ten Hag, playing only ten minutes this season so far.

Over 20 league appearances last term, Wan-Bissaka completed 59% of his dribbles and won 56% of his duels combined, as well as averaging 72.5 touches, 38 accurate passes, 1.7 interceptions, 2.5 tackles and 1.6 clearances per game, proving that he offers solid defensive attributes in the back-line.

It could be an opportunity for Lopetegui to finally replace Nelson Semedo, with the Wolves ace struggling to find consistent form this season so far.

Indeed, over 13 appearances, the full-back has failed to complete 69% of his dribbles, as well as averaging just 0.4 interceptions and winning only 0.5 aerial duels per game, numbers that are rather far behind the United right-back’s output last term.

Should Wolves sign Aaron Wan-Bissaka?

Thus, the signing of Wan-Bissaka is one they desperately need as they seek to add more depth and quality in a key area of the field with Jonny Castro Otto injured too.

With that being said, it will be important for Lopetegui to identify the right players to join the club in January as it could be the difference between reviving their season or sending them back to the Championship at the end of the campaign.
