According to a report from the Daily Mail, Wolverhampton Wanderers are keen to agree a new contract with Willy Boly, with the defender recently linked with a potential move to Arsenal.
The Sun reported earlier this month that the Gunners were one of the teams interested in signing Boly. The centre-back has been an outstanding signing for Wolves, helping the club to promotion, a brilliant first season in the Premier League and a promising start to this year.
But it appears that Unai Emery’s men are not the only side interested in the defender. The Daily Mail has suggested that Champions League clubs in England and abroad are chasing the Frenchman.
But Wolves are hoping that they can soon bring an end to speculation. The Mail reports that Nuno Espirito Santo’s men are interested in agreeing a new deal with Boly.
The report notes that Boly has less than two years to run on his deal at Molineux. So it is not overly surprising that Wolves do not want a question mark lingering over his future for much longer.
It would arguably be a big statement for Wolves to agree a new deal with Boly. He turns 29 before the end of the season, so he would be forgiven for wanting to consider his options.
Wolves have done incredibly well since Boly arrived. But they are going to have to produce something special to get into the Champions League in the coming years.
And if playing in that competition is a priority to Boly, discussions may not be straightforward. So it would send a real message out if Wolves can reach an agreement.
