Wolves reject Napoli’s €35 million defender offer

Serie A champions Napoli have been rebuffed in an opening offer for a key member of the defensive setup at Wolverhampton Wanderers, according to reports.

It is of course common knowledge that the powers that be at the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona are on the lookout for central defensive reinforcements ahead of next season.

This comes with star stopper Kim Min-jae primed for a move to Germany, with Bayern Munich.

Napoli’s search for a replacement, in turn, has long been kicked into gear, with a whole host of stoppers having been tipped as potential additions to incoming Partenopei boss Rudi Garcia’s squad.

The latest name linked with the Italian heavyweights, though, as alluded to above, has come as a major surprise.

This comes amid claims that Aurelio De Laurentiis and co. have set their sights on the signature of Wolves’ Max Kilman.

The proposal, however, was rejected without hesitation by the Molineux brass.

This comes with Wolves demanding no less than €40 million for their defensive stalwart.

Kilman, for his part, is also open to the possibility of renewing his terms in England’s west Midlands, meaning Wolves, who today agreed a deal to send Nathan Collins to Brentford, are under little pressure to sell.
