Wolves transfer target ‘closer and closer’ to leaving club as Gibbs-White Everton & Nottingham Forest stance clear

Another day, another Wolves ‘link’

Portuguese midfielder and apparent Wolves transfer target Andre Almeida is ‘getting closer and closer’ to leaving current club Vitória Guimarães SC.

That’s according to Portuguese news outlet Jornal de Notícias who state that a move away ‘seems inevitable’ for the 22-year-old, however, all interested parties still remain far away from Vitoria’s valuation of the player.

Almeida has 12-months left on his deal with his current club though if anyone is serious about landing the midfielder, he does have a €50m release clause in his contract that could be activated at any time.

Vitoria do also reportedly have an option to extend it should they wish so if Wolves are serious about his signature, they will likely have to pay up.

Gibbs-White part of the pack

Elsewhere and it seems as though Morgan Gibbs-White will remain at Molineux to compete for a starting spot in the next campaign.

The midfielder who spent last season on loan with Championship side Sheffield United has been attracting interest from a number of sides this summer including Wolves’ Premier League rivals Everton and Nottingham Forest.

It was reported just today that the black and gold have turned down an offer in the region of £25million from the Toffees for the England under-21 with Bruno Lage keen to keep him at Molineux.

Gibbs-White is yet to sign the new contract offer that was handed to him in May but the Express & Star claim that the club are ‘intent’ on keeping him whether he does or doesn’t sign an extension.

The 22-year-old starred in a 3-0 win for Wolves in a behind closed doors game with Burnley this past weekend.
