Wolves are now reportedly not interested in signing Atletico Madrid full-back Filipe Luis.

Reports had emerged earlier this summer that Nuno's side could be keen on the Brazilian, who is out of contract.

However it's now thought that Wolves aren't keen on the veteran defender, who's future still remains unclear.

Wolves are being listed as outsiders in the race for Mario Balotelli this summer.

The former Manchester City and Liverpool striker is a free agent following his exit from Marseille, and bookmakers have offered a price on him heading to Molineux.

He's 14/1 to sign with Wolves, although West Ham are the favourites at 11/10. Parma, Fiorentina and Crystal Palace all sit ahead of Nuno's men in the bookies' estimations.


West Brom

Reports linking West Brom defender Ahmed Hegazi to Al-Ahli are thought to be inaccurate.

Rumours began to surround the future of the Egyptian defender earlier this week, with numerous suggestions mentioning an exit for the 28-year-old.

However, recent reports seem to suggest that he won't be departing for the middle east anytime soon.


Meanwhile, West Brom are being linked with a move for Southampton striker Charlie Austin.

The striker is set to leave St. Mary's this summer, having fallen out of favour last season.

The Baggies are in need of strikers, having seen Dwight Gayle and Jay Rodriguez both depart.

Aston Villa

Reports claim that Villa are interested in another defender in the shape of Waldemar Anton.

The German U21 international currently features for Hannover, but reports on the continent claim he could be set for B6.

It's reported that he could move on for as much as £9m, although there are apparently no offers for his services just yet.

Villa remain keen on bringing Neal Maupay to B6, according to reports.

The striker was heavily linked with a move to Villa Park earlier this summer, but Dean Smith's capture of Wesley from Club Brugge quietened down talk of another forward joining imminently.

Reports now suggest that Villa could make an offer to Brentford for the Frenchman, with the Bees apparently keen on the signing of Sam Gallagher as his replacement.


Walsall boss Darrell Clarke could target two or three signings before the Saddlers set off for Poland.

Walsall are headed to Eastern Europe for pre-season training, but Clarke is keen to add some new faces before they fly out.

The Saddlers have already cast their eye over a number of trialists in recent weeks.
