Wolverhampton Wanderers have reportedly turned their attention to Leicester City defender Danny Simpson in the final hours of the transfer window, and some of the club’s supporters on Twitter are convinced he would be a panic buy.
According to the Daily Mail on its live blog (1:48pm, 9 August), they have enquired about the Foxes right-back after a move for Manchester City’s Oleksandr Zinchenko collapsed.
The report claims that Leicester would be open to the sale or loan exit of the 31-year-old after they signed Ricardo Pereira earlier in the summer.
It is also understood that Chelsea flyer Victor Moses is a potential target at full-back for Nuno Espirito Santo's side.
Simpson was part of the famous Leicester team that won the Premier League title in the 2015/16 campaign and he has a wealth of experience.
The English ace is a reliable defender with decent pace, but he is not too adventurous when in attacking positions.
A selection of Wolves supporters on social media have reacted negatively to the club’s approach for Simpson, with the overall feeling suggesting that he would not be good enough at Molineux.
Here is some of the reaction to the Simpson speculation:
