Wolves are ready to ramp up their pursuit of Monaco defender Benoît Badiashile amid Manchester United and Tottenham speculation, according to reports.
The 18-year-old made 26 starts in all competitions last season for Monaco as they just avoided the drop in Ligue Un, including two starts in the Champions League.
Monaco ‘‘indirectly learned’ that United ‘could also position themselves’ in the race to sign the France under-19 international.
L’Equipe continue by saying that the interest from Wolves is ‘not a bluff’ – with Jorge Mendes heavily involved – and that Monaco president Oleg Petrov found out recently that the Premier League club are ‘willing to make an offer’.
On the fee, the French publication adds: ‘The amount of the potential bid that AS Monaco management has been informed of has not filtered out, but considering the market for such young people, it can be estimated at around €40m.’
