Reported Wolves target Edson Alvarez is yet to have an offer made for him by Nuno's side.

Previous reports had claimed that the Black Country side had been in contact with Club America, but it seems they've yet to make a bid.

The 21-year-old is a centre-back also capable of playing on the right side of defence too.

Meanwhile, Wolves are also being linked with another centre-back, in the shape of James Tarkowski.

Reports suggest that the Burnley defender has impressed the team at Molineux, along with a number of other clubs.

Manchester City, Leicester and Manchester United are also reportedly keen on the 26-year-old.


West Brom

Reports on the continent suggest West Brom striker Salomon Rondon could be offered £3.5m-a-year to join Fenerbahce.

The forward is likely to depart Albion this summer, with a £16.5m release clause making him a target for numerous clubs.

Newcastle are thought to be keen alongside Wolves, although reports now claim teams on the continent could also make a move for the Venezuelan.


West Brom are reportedly interested in West Ham youngster Reece Oxford.

The defender was expected to complete a move to Augsburg, but that move now looks unlikely, according to reports.

Middlesbrough are also thought to be keen on the 20-year-old.

Aston Villa

Aston Villa are reportedly set to bid £14m for Leeds United midfielder Kalvin Phillips.

Villa let go of Glenn Whelan and Mile Jedinak over the summer, and reportedly see Phillips as an ideal replacement in holding midfield.

Leeds are unlikely to allow him to leave cheaply, with some reports claiming he could cost £20m.

Meanwhile, reports suggest that Villa could be set to cash in on Lovre Kalinic just months after bringing him to Villa Park.

The Croatian stopper has so far struggled to settle, having played second fiddle to Jed Steer late in Villa's promotion season.

Reports have linked Villa with moves for Jack Butland or Neil Etheridge.


No fresh Walsall rumours today.
