Wolves set sights on out-of-favour Man United defender

Wolverhampton Wanderers have identified an out-of-favour member of the defensive ranks at Premier League rivals Manchester United as a potential signing for the new year, according to reports.

The player understood to be in the sights of the Midlands outfit? Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

It has, of course, long been one of football’s worst kept secrets that stopper Wan-Bissaka has been made available for transfer by the powers that be at Old Trafford.

After falling firmly behind first-choice Diogo Dalot in the right-back pecking order on the red half of Manchester, AWB has been afforded just a solitary appearance in all competitions across the season to date.

Amid ongoing efforts to land his replacement, the former Crystal Palace standout has, in turn, begun to attract interest ahead of the opening of the January transfer window.

And now, as alluded to above, fresh interest on the part of one of United’s rivals in the English top-flight has been revealed.

The info comes courtesy of journalist Alex Crook, who points towards Wolves and Molineux as a potential January landing spot for Wan-Bissaka:

The Wolves hierarchy are of course currently hard at work to reinforce the club’s personnel options for the 2nd half of the campaign, on the back of the appointment of highly-regarded Spanish tactician Julen Lopetegui.
