Five facts on reported Wolves target Michal Zyro

Legia Warsaw winger Michal Zyro has been linked with a transfer to Wolves.

The Championship club have reportedly submitted an offer for the 22-year-old winger, as per TMW, as they look to strengthen ahead of a promotion fight in the second half of the season.

Currently turning out for Legia Warsaw in his homeland, little is known of the Polish international, and so here are five facts to whet your appetite ahead of a potential January transfer.

1) A 22-year-old winger, Zyro most frequently turns out on the left side of the attack. He has also shown an ability to play all along the left side of the pitch, and has occasionally filled in at left-back for his team.

2) Having progressed through the academy of Polish champions Legia Warsaw, Zyro made his debut in 2009, and has since gone on to make 123 appearances for the Legion. He has scored 21 goals and registered 29 assists in that time period, with his good form piquing interest from the national set-up. Having made his debut in the summer of 2014, he has gone on to appear five times for the Polish senior side.

3) Earlier this year, Zyro was linked with a transfer to Scottish giants Celtic, but Legia head coach Henning Berg rejected the Bhoys advances. As quoted by the Scotsman, Berg said: “Zyro has the potential to be a top player. We will not sell him now. When we do sell him it has to be right for us and he should be ready to go into a club and play every week.”

4) The youngster’s contract runs until the summer of 2016, which means that clubs will be able to approach him over a free transfer at this time next year. Should interest continue to grow in Zyro it is unlikely that he will want to extend his contract, and Legia could be tempted to sell him this month to make a profit on him, rather than potentially lose him for free next year.

5) Along with Celtic, Serie A side Genoa have also shown an interest in Zyro, as per the TMW report, but there is no indication as to whether they have opened talks with the winger, as Wolves have reportedly already done.
