Fabrizio Romano now reveals key Wolves transfer talks in big update out of Molineux

Wolverhampton Wanderers have already suffered a major setback in their plans for the upcoming Premier League season after losing captain Max Kilman to West Ham United in a deal worth around £40 million – but Fabrizio Romano has exclusively revealed to GIVEMESPORT that plans are already underway to find a replacement centre-back, with the position becoming a priority for the departing player.

Kilman, who skippered Wolves for the whole season and did not miss a single game, performed admirably last season, prompting interest from other clubs in the Premier League’s top half. West Ham became the club to land their goal, with the defender returning to his London home to join up with previous

The club will be desperately trying to sign Kilman. With news of Kilman’s future being widely publicized for some time, Wolves have had time to react to his likely exit in the transfer market, leading to ties elsewhere.

We exclusively disclosed in June that the West Midlands club was in the market for Borussia Monchengladbach centre-back Nico Elvedi, with scouts closely monitoring him during his time in Germany; however, nothing has happened yet, with Kilman only completing his transfer over the weekend.

Meanwhile, Portuguese outlet Record has reported that Porto defender David Carmo could be on their shortlist following an impressive loan spell with Olympiacos last season – and with the defender being Portuguese, he would join the nine-strong list of Iberian stars under O’Neil’s guidance.

Romano: Wolves are “very active” on the transfer market.
The team is looking to recruit talent to replace existing stars. Speaking exclusively to GIVEMESPORT, Romano stated that after ensuring their striker priority with the signing of Danish attacker Jorgen Strand Larsen on a £26 million loan-to-buy deal, their focus has shifted to centre-back in an effort to replace Kilman. He said:

“I guess yes. After signing Strand Larsen, who was a key player as the replacement striker sought by Gary O’Neil. I believe they need a new centre-back and will definitely look into options.

“There is nothing imminent yet, but Wolves are always very active on the market so they’ve started discussing internally and the new centre-back is next.”

Wolves Need to Avoid More Sales to Stay Up.
A repeat of last season may see them drop farther.

Losing your captain so early in the transfer window is one of the most devastating things that can happen to a club. West Ham have come in and paid Wolves a respectable amount to at least rebuild, but the Molineux club must use that money wisely.

With Santiago Bueno, Craig Dawson, and Tori Gomes as the club’s first-choice centre-backs, Wolves require another reinforcement in the Midlands if they are to avoid potential Championship relegation. A transfer window similar to last season might see them slide farther down the table once more, and that could see them slip into a relegation struggle if they aren’t careful; especially given that they haven’t replaced the likes of Ruben Neves. Joao Moutinho and Matheus Nunes took full effect last summer.
