Wolves ready to battle West Ham and Burnley for Premier League defender

Published

Wolverhampton Wanderers are one of three clubs chasing West Bromwich Albion defender Craig Dawson this summer, according to a report by The Mirror.

Wolves join West Ham United and Burnley in the hunt for Dawson, who could become available for transfer if West Brom are relegated as expected.

The Baggies picked up a victory against Newcastle United this weekend, to add to their four points claimed from tough matches against Manchester United and Liverpool, meaning that they are not mathematically relegated just yet.

Under Darren Moore, West Brom have shown major signs of improvement but it looks like it will be too little too late for the West Midlands outfit, who are on the brink of relegation to the Championship.

Wolves, meanwhile, are looking to poach their star defender Dawson as they prepare for life back in the top flight.

The 27-year-old has been one of West Brom’s top performers over the past few seasons and has been an integral part of their recent good form.

The former England under-21 international offers plenty of experience, having played 151 games in the Premier League.

And the former Rochdale man, who stands at 6ft 2in, is also a major threat from set pieces, with 12 West Brom goals to his name.

The Verdict

Dawson would be an excellent signing for Wolves, adding competition for places at the back and some vital Premier League experience. The towering defender can play as a centre back or as a right back and this versatility would suit Nuno’s style of play and his preference for defenders to carry the ball out from the defence. At the right price, Wolves would really benefit from having a player like Dawson in their squad and he is unlikely to want to stay with West Brom if they are relegated.
