Wolverhampton Wanderers have been linked with a move to sign AS Monaco winger Keita Balde in the January transfer window - and Wolves fans have reacted on Twitter excitedly.

The 23-year-old winger is currently on loan at Inter Milan from Monaco but TuttoMercatoWeb claim that his loan could be cancelled in the January transfer window after struggling with the Italian side.

 

Indeed, Balde has failed to score and only managed one assist in his 13 appearances for the Italian outfit, and could return to Thierry Henry's side just halfway through his season-long loan spell.

The report indicates that Wolves are keen to bring the 23-time Senegal international to the Premier League, as Nuno Espirito Santo's work in the transfer window continues to surprise and excite fans.

Balde boasts plenty of pace on the flanks and has an eye for goal that saw him score 31 times in 137 games for Lazio, before he departed to join Monaco.

Wolves would have to pay a loan fee of £4.5million, while Balde's permanent clause in his loan to Inter is set at £26.7million. However, fans are excited that the club are interested in the speedy winger.
