Wolverhampton Keen On Signing Manchester United Star Who Wants To Leave Old Trafford - Reports

Manchester United defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka has emerged as a target for Wolverhampton Wanderers ahead of the winter transfer window, according to talkSPORT.

Manchester United forked out a sum of £50 million to acquire Wan-Bisssaka's services from Crystal Palace in 2019. The right-back has since made 127 appearances across all competitions for them, contributing towards 12 goals in the process.

However, Wan-Bissaka has fallen out of favor at Old Trafford since Erik ten Hag's arrival in the summer. He has amassed just four minutes of Premier League action so far this season.

With first-choice right-back Diogo Dalot away with Portugal for the FIFA World Cup, Ten Hag gave the 25-year-old a chance during the Red Devils' recent friendlies. The player, though, continued to struggle for the Premier League giants.

There have thus been suggestions that Manchester United have decided to sell Wan-Bissaka in the near future. The full-back's struggles during the friendlies in Spain seem to be the final nail in the coffin.

With Wan-Bissaska's Old Trafford future in the air, Wolves have emerged as a potential destination for him. According to the aforementioned source, the Wanderers want to sign him in the January transfer window.

The Red Devils are seemingly prepared to sanction a transfer for Wan-Bissaka next month. However, the report added that the club are keen to ensure that they have a replacement in place before letting him leave.

It is unclear whether Julen Lopetegui's side would prefer to sign the former Crystal Palace on loan or permanently. It also remains to be seen how much Manchester United will demand for his transfer.

Wolves are reportedly prepared to allow Lopetegui, who took charge of the club last month, to strengthen his squad for the second half of the season. The current bottom-placed side in the Premier League will be hopeful that the Spaniard can steer them clear of the relegation zone.
