Wolves join race for Celta ace

21st January 2019, 14:26 by Neil Foster

Wolves have joined the race to sign highly-rated Celta Vigo midfielder Stanislav Lobotka this January, according to reports.

The 24-year-old has been turning heads with his displays in midfield for the La Liga side since joining from Danish club FC Nordsjaelland in 2017.

Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint Germain have been mentioned as possible suitors as they look for someone to replace Adrien Rabiot at the Parc des Princes, while a number of Premier League clubs are also thought to be keen.

Watford and Bournemouth are reportedly interested while Calciomercato claimed on Friday that Leicester City were planning to make a £23 million bid.

That might not be enough as the Slovakia international has a £45 million release clause in his contract although the Celestes might be willing to accept a lower bid.

According to Paris United, Nuno Espirito Santo has now thrown his hat into the ring although it is unclear if the player would see much game time at Molineux with the West Midlanders' midfield full of talent.
