But now it appears they have turned their attention towards another soon-to-be free-agent right-back. As reported by Football London, Ryan Fredericks' swashbuckling performances in Slavisa Jokanovic’s free-flowing Fulham side have encouraged West Ham to make him one of their top summer targets.
Which, in conjunction, could be great news for Wolverhampton Wanderers.
The former Porto full-back has been one of the most impressive performers in a decent season for Martin Baum’s Augsburg and has started 17 Bundesliga games in 2017/18. But it looks almost certain that he will leave the club on a free transfer and he was spotted recently talking to officials from German giants Schalke.
But GhanaSoccerNet report that Wolves are planning to step up their pursuit in the summer. And Opare is likely to replace Paul Ofosu-Ayeh, who moved to Molineux from Eintracht Braunschweig in the summer but has not made an appearance thanks to injury.
As such, Wolves could swap one German-based Ghana right-back for another.
As reported by the Mail (2 January), Opare was valued at £3 million a few weeks ago so Wolves could get a bargain signing him in a couple of months.
