Wolverhampton Wanderers reportedly failed with a £700k bid to bring Ghana international Gyasi to the Premier League during the January transfer window.

Wolverhampton Wanderers are in talks over a deal to sign CSKA Sofia winger Edwin Gyasi, according to SportsWorldGhana.

The Dutch-born Ghana international has impressed in Bulgaria this season with four goals and eight assists for his side, who are five points behind Ludogorets in the top flight.

 

That form has allegedly caught the eye of Wolves.

SportsWorldGhana claimed that Wolves tried and failed to sign Gyasi in January after failing to meet his price-tag. The publication stated last year that Nuno Espirito Santo’s side had tabled a bid of £700,000 with Brighton also keen, although CSKA Sofia apparently turned it down.

But Wolves are reported to have renewed their interest with the summer transfer window just weeks away. The Midland giants have held discussions over a deal for the speedy forward, who favours a role on the left but can play anywhere across the front line.

The report adds that Bundesliga duo Hannover and Stuttgart have also scouted Gyasi while Besiktas want to bring him to Turkey.

Back in 2017, the Mirror (10 December, page 48) reported that Nottingham Forest, Sunderland and Stoke were keen on Gyasi, who was then playing for Aaselund in Denmark.
