Crystal Palace and Arsenal are eager to capture the signature of Wolves star Dominic Iorfa, according to a report.
The defender has established himself as Wolves’ first choice right-back this campaign after breaking into the team late last season and his performances have caught the eye of the two London clubs.
The Sun claim that Alan Pardew is the most keen of the two managers and has earmarked Iorfa as one of the men around whom to rebuild his fading Palace team.
The Eagles have endured a woeful second half to the season with their victory over Norwich on 9 April their only win in 18 league matches.
Despite being just 20-years-old, Iorfa has already accumulated 65 appearances and scored a respectable five goals.
Iorfa’s form also helped him break into the England Under-21s set-up in September and he has been a mainstay in the side in their successful qualification for the 2017 European Championships since then.
The Sun report that Arsenal have also been tracking the progress of one of Wolves’ most prized assets.
Pardew is reportedly willing to fork out as much as £3million for the youngster, but will not be handing Iorfa an immediatw starting position at Selhurst Park.
Wolves are currently attempting to reestablish themselves as a solid Championship side after returning to the second tier last season as League One champions.
Despite the interest in Iorfa and the potential for a big transfer payday, Wolves may be reluctant to sell their coveted youngster and will be unwilling to part ways with their first-choice right-back as they look to push for promotion next season.
