The Lowdown: Botman linked in the past

Wanderers are enjoying a good run of form in the Premier League, with Bruno Lage impressing as manager and his team sitting sixth in the table after 13 matches.

Nevertheless, Wolves could be on the lookout for defensive reinforcements in the January transfer window, and Botman was linked with a move to Molineux in the summer.

The 21-year-old has started nine Ligue 1 games for Lille so far this season, also featuring twice in the Champions League, and his current deal doesn’t expire until the summer of 2025.

The Latest: New update emerges

While Wolves missed out on the Dutchman in the summer, L’Equipe have hinted [via Sport Witness] that they could return for him in January.

Although Lille don’t necessarily have plans to sell Botman, the ‘courtiers have not disappeared’ with regards to attempting to sign him, which would seem to indicate that Wanderers remain keen on the player.

The Verdict: Ideal January addition

It may not be easy for Wolves to acquire the Dutchman’s signature but it could feel like a huge coup if they manage to do so, with his potential apparent in being hailed as ‘simply brilliant’ by journalist Robin Bairner earlier this year.

At 21, he is already a key player for a team playing in the Champions League, and he has enjoyed a 91.3% pass completion rate in the tournament this season, along with an average of 2.5 aerial duels per match, plus 2.2 per game in Ligue 1.

In comparison, Wolves centre-backs Max Kilman (1.8) and Conor Coady (one) lag well behind in the aerial duel stakes, which suggests that Botman could be a much more dominant presence in that area if he comes to Molineux.

In other news, Luke Hatfield believes Wolves could make a move for one attacking player. Find out who it is here.
