Wolverhampton Wanderers are interested in signing Besiktas defender Domagoj Vida this summer, according to Spox.

A commanding and battle-scarred centre-back, Vida shot to fame as he helped Croatia reach the final of the World Cup last year, producing outstanding performances against the likes of England and Argentina.

Although Besiktas priced a number of clubs out of a move for the 29-year-old last summer, it seems that interest has arisen again with his price-tag being reduced to a much more affordable £13 million.


Spox claims that Wolves have made an enquiry, though they will face competition from Italian giants Inter Milan and Roma for the former Dinamo Zagreb and Bayer Leverkusen player.

Nuno Espirito Santo’s side were heavily linked with Vida last year too, Sabah claiming that they failed with a £16 million bid.

And should Vida finally make the switch to Molineux 12 months on, he would add some depth to a back line who has barely changed throughout the season with Connor Coady, Ryan Bennet and Willy Boly starting almost every game together this season.

With Wolves eyeing European football next season, some extra options would be welcomed.
