Wolves face ‘stiff competition’ from Everton & West Ham for Dutch starlet

Wolves are eyeing a move for Guus Til.

Wolverhampton Wanderers have entered the race to sign Feyenoord midfielder Guus Til, according to TEAMtalk.

The midfielder was once one of the most promising prospects in Europe as he shone in his home country with AZ Alkmaar before a £15 million move to Spartak Moscow in 2019.

Til’s time in Russia was rather underwhelming unti his loan return with Feyenoord this season revived his career - scoring nine goals and forcing his way back into the Netherlands frame.

Birmingham World understand that Til now finds himself at the centre of a transfer tussle, with Wolves one of a number of Premier League clubs eyeing a move for the Dutchman.

Prior to Til’s move to Feyenoord, he extended his deal with Spartak to protect his value - a move that the Russians will be glad they made now.

Spartak reportedly possess a recall option in Gil’s contract which they could use in January and allow him to depart the club permanently - with England a likely destination.

Wolves have had one of the best defences in the Premier League season - conceding only 14 goals.

However, their attack is struggled so far, scoring more goals than only bottom-place Norwich City.

Adama Traore and Hwang Hee-chan have both been linked with moves away from Molineux Stadium when the transfer window opens and Bruno Lage could now consider bringing in Til to bolster his attacking options.

Who else is interested in Guus Til?

TEAMtalk have reported that Wolves face stiff competition for Til with a number of Premier League clubs expressing interest.

Everton, West Ham, Southampton, Crystal Palace, Brighton, Brentford and Watford are all thought to be weighing up a move for the 23-year-old.

However, despite the interest in Til, it has been reported that the Netherlands international hopes to see out the remainder of the season in Holland and cement his place in the Dutch squad ahead of next year’s World Cup.
