Report: Wolves keen on signing Atletico Madrid defender Stefan Savic

Wolves are interested in signing Atletico Madrid and former Manchester City defender, Stefan Savic, according to an exclusive report from 90Min.

The Molineux outfit is in the hunt for new players after another exceptional season last term, with Nuno Santo apparently keen to ensure the squad depth is suitable for another go next term.

Wolves were thought to be close to landing Ainsley Maitland-Niles from Arsenal, however, it looks as if the Englishman will now be staying put after impressing Mikel Arteta in recent weeks.

But it appears that Nuno Santo is now turning his attentions elsewhere anyway, with former Man City man Savic emerging as a target.

The Montenegro international star has won 50 caps for his country and, at 29-years-old, has the perfect mix of both experience and energy left in the tank to be a useful signing.

A centre-half, Savic would add depth and cover to a back three that has looked short at times. He has made 160 appearances for Atletico, highlighting just how good he has been since leaving City.

Conor Coady has been instrumental for the Molineux club and has rightly earned his call to the England set-up.


However, if Wolves are going to keep progressing then they need more strength in depth and in that depth, they need quality.

Savic is exactly the sort of signing they need to be looking at. Strong, experienced, and defensively sound, he’d bring plenty back to England that we probably didn’t see enough of last time.

At 29, he should be in his prime, too, making him the ideal sort of summer signing for Wolves.
