Wolves plotting multi-million pound swoop for player, other clubs keen as well

Wolves are set to swoop for Willy Boly this summer, the French defender currently on-loan at Molineux from Portuguese giants Porto.

Boly signed for Wolves in the summer and has made 28 starts as his side have stormed to the top of the Championship. They’re now looking to make the move permanent, according to Portuguese media outlet O Jogo.

27-year old Boly has previously played for Auxerre and Braga, before his form at the latter alerted Porto. He joined them in August 2016 on a five-year deal, with a reported buy out clause of 45m euros or £40m.

After just seven appearances at the Estadio do Dragao, he was allowed to join back up with Nuno, the manager who took him to Porto.

Since then he’s established himself as a key member of the Wolves team that looks on course for a Premier league return, even weighing in with three goals this campaign. The report suggest that Wolves will need to pay in the region of 12m euros, or £10.6m.

Much will hinge on finishing the season in the top two, as such an outlay might be difficult if Wolves were to remain a Championship team.

The riches of the Premier League would open up a whole new level of potential spending at Molineux and make a move for the defender much more likely.

The Verdict

Boly has been in great form at the heart of Wolves defence this season, although he might want to forget this weekend’s clash with Aston Villa.

Whether £10.6m represents a good deal for the 27-year old is another matter, but should they be a Premier League club next season it will appear relatively small change.
