Nuno Espirito Santo’s side have made a habit of signing some of the most promising rising stars in European football with Ruben Neves, Diogo Jota, Adama Traore and co going from strength to strength since moving to Molineux for big-money fees.
And reports from France suggest that Tchouameni could follow in their footsteps. The 19-year-old has enjoyed a fine season so far in Ligue 1 with his rangy style and technical ability earning him comparisons with Manchester United powerhouse and French World Cup winner Paul Pogba.
"It's always a pleasure to be compared to Paul Pogba," Tchouameni told RMC Sport in November. “I think we're in the same league.”
The report adds that Serie A title-challengers Inter Milan and Monchi’s Sevilla are interested too and Bordeaux will not let their prized asset leave on a cheap, given that Tchouameni has a contract until 2022.
There are surely areas that Wolves need to strengthen before they turn to central midfield, however, given that Nuno can call upon Neves, Joao Moutinho, Romain Saiss and Leander Dendoncker, let alone youngsters Morgan Gibbs-White, Meritam Shabani and Bruno Jordao.
