Wolves are plotting a bid for 19-year-old Argentinian sensation, Carlos Alcaraz, as Bruno Lage plans a summer rebuild at the club.
That’s according to Spanish outlet Marca, who claims that Wolves are one of the many sides that are chasing the Racing Club youngster, alongside Juventus, Arsenal, and Tottenham Hotspur.
A release clause of €20m (£17m) is reportedly in the 19-year-old’s contract and this could tempt a range of clubs to make a bid.
With the news that Wolves midfielder Ruben Neves might be on his way out of the club following links to Barcelona, replacements will be needed ahead of next season.
Alcaraz looks like he has an excellent future ahead of him in the game. With five goals and two assists already this season for Racing Club, he is establishing himself at such a young age.
Despite playing in a different position, these early performances have led many, including journalist Kostas Lianos to claim that Alcaraz could be the “next Lautaro Martinez.”

Alcaraz, with youth behind him, might well get the chance to push further forward as time progresses, and signing him would be a shrewd move for Lage.
Of course, the inexperienced tag might be a detrimental factor, but if the move works out, they could have a real diamond on their hands, and one that could net them a significant profit in the future.
It could well be an exciting time ahead for the Wolves faithful.
