Wolves have bid rejected for Manchester United and Arsenal target



Wolves have had an offer rejected for Fleetwood Town’s highly-rated young goalkeeper Billy Crellin.

The 17-year old has been attracting interest from the likes of Manchester United, Arsenal and Everton but it’s the Championship leaders who have made the first move according to Football Insider.

However, Fleetwood have rejected the initial offer for the teenager who was involved in the England U-17 side that won the World Cup in India last year.

Crellin only played one game at the tournament where Wolves man Morgan Gibbs-White scored in the final as England beat Spain 5-2 to secure a memorable victory.

He has also featured for England’s U18 side, meaning he is the first player in Fleetwood’s history to earn international recognition with the Three Lions whilst at the club.

The Cod Army are expecting further bids for the stopper and will struggle to keep hold of the player given the calibre of clubs interested in taking him. Although, he is contracted to the League One side until 2020 having put pen to paper on a new deal last month.

The Verdict

As with all lower league clubs, it’s extremely difficult to prevent players leaving if a better offer comes in and Fleetwood will find that out now.

Wolves have regularly looked to sign younger players to come into the academy and develop and clearly see Crellin as a talent who would prosper at Molineux.

Given the competition for his signature it will be tough for the Championship side to secure a deal but fans will be pleased to see the club are identifying long-term targets.
