Wolves and Arsenal given green light to go head-to-head for transfer

Wolverhampton Wanderers had the chance to sign Renato Sanches at the end of the summer transfer window.

Bruno Lage ‘s side were in talks with Lille about a loan move for the Portugal international but negotiations broke down.

Sanches has reignited his career at Lille having flopped at Bayern Munich, who bought the 24 year-old from Bayern Munich for £35million after a superb showing for Portugal in the 2016 European Championships

Sanches signed for Lille in 2019 and helped Christophe Galtier’s side to the French title in 2020-21, upsetting the odds to beat a star-studded Paris Saint-Germain team to the Ligue 1 crown.

With Sanches under contract until 2023, teams are circling Lille with Wolves facing competition for the former Swansea City loanee.

AC Milan and Wolves ‘ Premier League rivals Arsenal are said to be keen on a move for the player, who has declared himself ‘ready’ to move should any teams come in for him.

“Milan and Arsenal are maybe interested, I spoke with my agent about it but I can’t say any more,” Sanches is quoted as saying by Get French Football News in conversation with L’Equipe.

“I just know I’m ready. If the offer arrives I’ll evaluate it. Milan are a great club – historic, classy. I really like them.”

Sanches also admitted that he made the move to Bayern too early in his career, adding: “I was too young, but today I feel ready for a big club.”

Wolves have started the season well and will look to January to strengthen their ranks with Lage making clear his expectations for when the window re-opens in the New Year.

“One thing is what I want and the people know what I want,” he said last week.

“I have seen how the competition needs to be inside our building.

“We need to create the squad that we want to continue to grow up, not just as a team but also to put the club in a different level.

“I just want top players and when I say top players, it’s not about how much they cost, it’s about the mentality they have.

“I’m very happy with all of the guys here. That’s why it’s so difficult for us to find the right guys. We have talented players.

“I don’t want a player for the squad, I want a player to come and create competition in the positions I think we need.”
