Wolves are interested in signing Fulham defender Antonee Robinson, according to Football Insider.
Robinson, who joined Fulham from Wigan for £2m last summer, impressed in his 28 Premier League appearances last season.
The left-back is now attracting interest from the Premier League, with Manchester City already having been linked with his signature.
According to Football Insider, Wolves are now lining up a move for Robinson, who is said to be valued at a price of around £10m.
Wolves have already agreed to sign Angers’ Rayan Ait-Nouri for a £10m fee, but it seems as if their sights are also on another left-back in Robinson.
Here, we discuss this potential arrival at Molineux…
I really think that this would be an outstanding signing.
Antonee Robinson showed glimpses of promise during his first season with Fulham and I certainly believe that there’s more to come from him at Premier League level.
Playing for a club like Wolves I believe that he could really kick on.
Robinson is an attack-minded left wing-back and that’s a role that Wolves are looking to strengthen this summer.
As part of a better all-round unit, Robinson has the potential to become a real force in the top tier and if Wolves can pull it off I think that this would be a very smart signing.
I think this would be an intriguing move by Wolves as they are seemingly set to sign Rayan Ait-Nouri on a permanent basis from Angers.
The Frenchman greatly impressed for the Midlands club last term and could well put a dent in their pursuit of Robinson.
There’s no doubting that the Fulham left back would add quality to the Molineux ranks but if a move for Ait-Nouri goes through, I don’t think he would be first choice.
He’ll want to be at a club where he is starting every week and I simply don’t think Wolves could guarantee that moving forwards.
So realistically this isn’t a player that they would necessarily need moving into the upcoming season.
How well do you know Fulham’s celebrity supporters? – Can you score 20/20?
This has the makings of a fantastic signing for me as long as they’re planning to use him as a wing-back.
There’s so much to like about Antonee Robinson but I do question whether he’s got the defensive capabilities to play in a back four at Premier League level.
We’re yet to really see what Bruno Lage’s Wolves are going to be but if he wants to use wing-backs then moving for Robinson now could be a really smart bit of business.
They should be able to get a good deal in the current market, particularly given Fulham’s relegation.
There’s a reason the likes of AC Milan were in for him not long ago!
