Wolves are in the hunt to sign Bournemouth midfielder Dan Gosling in the summer as the Championship leaders begin to make plans for life in the Premier League, according to a reliable journalist.
Sun reporter Alan Nixon claimed on his personal Twitter account on Sunday that Wolves are keen on Gosling, 28, and are keeping tabs on him ahead of the summer transfer window.
Gosling has a decent amount of Premier League experience, which may be why Wolves manager Nuno Espirito Santo has taken a liking to the midfield enforcer.
He has made over 120 appearances in England’s top-flight across spells at Bournemouth, Newcastle and Everton.
This season, the defensive midfielder has been a regular feature in Eddie Howe’s first-team with 21 appearances and two goals in all competitions.
Wolves are extremely likely to return to the Premier League this season.
The West Midlands club are currently 12 points clear at the top of the Championship table and 13 points away from dropping out of the automatic promotion spots.
Football Insider verdict
Wolves may as well start preparing for life in the Premier League with how easily they have dominated the Championship this season. It goes to show that the second-tier is a tough league to get out of unless a lot of money is pumped into the squad thanks to overseas investors and the influence of an agent who has links to top clubs across Europe. Gosling does not fit the criteria of players that Wolves have signed in the last 18 months but he would be a decent addition to the squad due to his experience. Howe might not be happy to let him leave though due to his standing in the Bournemouth squad.
