Here’s a round-up of the latest Wolves transfer news.

Earlier this week we reported on Wolverhampton Wanderers’ links to Douglas Costa, Diego Costa and Angelo Stiller.

Here’s our transfer update featuring today’s rumours circling the Wolves camp.

Possible signings

Willian Jose

Wolves will have to pay £17.7 million to sign Real Sociedad striker Willian Jose on a permanent basis, according to the Express & Star.

The Brazil international has been heavily linked with a move to Molineux, with Sky Sports reiterating claims a deal is on the cards.

The forward is seen as an ideal candidate to deputise for Raul Jimenez. The deal would involve a loan until the end of the season, with an option to purchase the player. However, Wolves would be under no obligation to buy, the report states.

A conflicting report by Marca sees Sociedad boss Imanol Alguacil state any deal for Jose remains “far from certain”.

Douglas Costa

Wolves have been offered an opportunity to sign Juventus winger Douglas Costa, according to The Telegraph.

The Brazilian is currently on loan at Bayern Munich but appears out of favour at the German champions, who he signed for previously in July 2015.

Costa has made 15 Bundesliga appearances this season but only six of them have been starts as he struggles to compete with Leroy Sane, Serge Gnabry and Kingsley Coman.

Costa could cut his loan short if the right offer comes in, although any deal with Wolves is likely to be an initial loan.

Diego Costa

Fabrizio Romano has given an insight into Wolves’ reported interest in former Chelsea star Diego Costa.

The Brazil-born Spain international became a free agent this month after his contract with Atletico Madrid was terminated.

The Daily Mail has labelled Costa as a potential Wolves signing.

 

However, the Italian journalist suggested Wolves had yet to approach the striker.

Possible departures

Patrick Cutrone

Fabrizio Romano has insisted Patrick Cutrone could leave Wolves if the club signs Willian Jose.

The former Milan striker joined Fiorentina on an 18-month loan deal from Wolves last January. However, he returned to the club this month to bolster Wolves’ attacking options.

Romano suggests the arrival of another forward would see Cutrone leave Wolves once more, with a return to Serie A his most likely destination.

Adama Traore

Sport previously suggested Wolves winger Adama Traore was being monitored by Liverpool, Manchester City and Leeds.

The report insisted Wolves would consider bids in the region of £35.5 million for the Spain international.

However, an update from Leeds Live states any pursuit from the Yorkshire club is “pure fantasy”.

Ones who got away

Luka Jovic

Luka Jovic rejected the chance to join Wolves before opting to return to former club Eintracht Frankfurt on loan, according to SportBILD.

The Serbian forward struggled at Real Madrid since arriving from Frankfurt in summer 2019. He had been linked with several suitors.

Missing out on the striker will be a disappointment to Wolves fans. Lionel Messi once included Jovic in his top 15 young prospects.

Lassina Traore

Ajax sporting director Marc Overmars told the club’s official website striker Lassina Traore will remain at the club despite interest from Wolves.

The Dutch side brought in Sebastien Haller from West Ham for £20.25 million this month before selling Klaas-Jan Huntelaar to Schalke. The Dutchman’s departure means Traore won’t be allowed to leave.

Traore was also a target for West Ham.
