Talks underway: Wolves enter hunt for 6ft 2 colossus defender - report

Wolves have opened talks in an attempt to sign defender Fraser Horsfall from National North League side Kidderminster, according to a report.

The Express and Star claims that Nuno Espirito Santo’s side have joined the hunt for the highly-rated 21-year-old and initial discussions have been held about a potential switch.

It is understood that a move is likely to cost £200,000 and that Championship outfit QPR are also in pursuit.

The report details that the 6ft 2in centre-back is likely to be sent out on loan or link up with the Under-23s side if he does complete a move to Wolves this summer.

Football Insider verdict:

Horsfall was previously on the books at Huddersfield and was loaned out to non-league side Kidderminster at the beginning of last season, before making his move a permanent switch in January. The powerhouse defender was a mainstay in the side and the belief is that he could play at a much higher level. Wolves reportedly want to put a lot of focus on improving their Under-23s side and development in the coming years, which is why picking up young talents from non-league is a positive step. Horsfall’s minimal £200,000 fee is nothing to pay if he gets to reach anywhere near his potential and there is said to be other interest in his signature. Wolves do also need to focus on improving their senior squad ahead of their return to the Premier League and ensure they can turn Molineux into a fortress. They romped to the Championship title in the end during the 2017/18 campaign and will be hoping to carry on that momentum under Nuno.
