Wolves have held talks with Corinthians defender Robert Renan’s agent with a Premier League move on the horizon, Brazilian journalist Jorge Nicola says on his official youtube Channel.
12 months after Yerson Mosquera was snatched from under Manchester City for £4.5million, history could be repeating itself at Molineux.
According to Nicola, Wolverhampton Wanderers are not the only English side showing an interest in 18-year-old Renan. The slim centre-back has also been the focus of talks with City Football Group.
“One of the greatest talents at Corinthians is catching the attention of two English clubs,” says Nicola. “Borussia Dortmund in Germany want him too.
“There is no official proposal (for Renan) yet. But his agent Eduardo Bou Daye has been in England for a few days. (The agent has met) the City Group and Wolves to discuss the player’s future.
“You just have to understand how high the reputation of Robert is in the market. The offers vary between 10 and 11 million euros for the boy.
Wolves and Man City battle for Robert Renan
What happens next depends largely on how Renan views his career development.
Does he want to play regular first-team football at the earliest opportunity? or would he rather join Pep Guardiola’s star-studded Premier League champions; A high-risk, potentially rewarding approach that would see Renan likely on loan to one of City’s many sister groups, be it Girona or New York City FC.
“Robert, as soon as he entered the game, he played a pass between the lines. One of the most difficult passports to produce.” Corinthians coach Vitor Pereira said after Renan came on to set up a goal in the 4-0 win over Santos in the Copa do Brasil.
“It shows his confidence and quality. He needs to grow but he has potential. He’s a player who will no doubt fly to other levels. He’s fast, he’s technical and he has personality.”
