Report: Wolverhampton Wanderers close in on signing Nicolai Boilesen

Wolverhampton Wanderers have reportedly agreed a fee to sign Nicolai Boilesen from Ajax.

According to a report in the Daily Mirror, Wolverhampton Wanderers are closing in on a deal to sign Nicolai Boilesen from Ajax.

Wolves have agreed a £300,000 fee with the Dutch giants for the defender, with personal terms now being discussed.

Kenny Jackett’s side are keen to strengthen their defence in January, after failing to keep goals out for much of the campaign so far.

Wolves have been undone by their tendency to gift opposition sides goals this term, but it is hoped Boilesen can tighten up their defensive line.

The 23-year-old has fallen out of favour at Ajax this season, and he is yet to play a match, but he has previously played a more prominent role.

Boilesen has made 52 senior appearances for Ajax since breaking through in 2011.

If he does move to Molineux, he will be competing with Matt Doherty for a place on the left hand side of Jackett’s defence.

Boilesen will become Wolves' second signing of the January transfer window if he does join, following the arrival of Michal Zyro from Legia Warsaw.
