Wolverhampton Wanderers are reportedly interested in signing Leeds United goalkeeper Bailey Peacock-Farrell.
If there is one non-local club that Wolves would not mind getting one over this summer, it may well be Leeds United after their Championship clash in March when Andrea Radrizzani expressed his concerns about the Molineux side’s transfer policy – as reported by BBC Sport.
With the pair now in separate divisions, the two clubs are unlikely to meet during the coming campaign, but it would appear that they may still be in contact at some stage.
Peacock-Farrell is clearly an extremely bright talent who is probably going to be playing Premier League football on a regular basis at some stage of his career. And Leeds fans may well be fearing that he could become the latest academy graduate whose development is quicker than the club’s on the pitch if they are not careful after his superb run as number one towards the end of last season.
It would be a huge shock if Leeds were prepared to cash in, but Wolves have shown that they are not afraid to spend big, so perhaps it would be foolish to suggest that a move will definitely not take place this summer.
And if it does, it would perhaps be fair to suggest that Wolves may be reflecting on a potential blinder given the other goalkeeper deal that the two clubs have agreed in the last 12 months.
In 2017, Leeds signed Andy Lonergan after the veteran’s hugely disappointing spell at Molineux. While Lonergan is arguably a much better stopper than he has been given credit for, it did seem to be a popular sale amongst the Wolves fans and he has unfortunately not been able to prove too much of a point at Elland Road.
Therefore, if Wolves manage to sign Peacock-Farrell a year after they sold Lonergan to Leeds, they will surely be reflecting that they have done some fantastic business at the Whites’ expense over the last 12 months.
