Report: Wolves make enquiry for £13m-rated Besiktas and Croatia defender Domagoj Vida

Domagoj Vida reached the World Cup final with Croatia.

Wolverhampton Wanderers have made an enquiry for Besiktas defender Domagoj Vida, according to Turkish media outlet Sporx.

Vida is rated at €15m (just less than £13m) by Besiktas and Wolves face a battle with Inter Milan and Roma.

The Croatia international has also recently been linked with a move to Tottenham Hotspur, according to Turkish website Takvim.

Vida’s rise to popularity came last summer when he helped his country reach the final of the World Cup.

Alongside Dejan Lovren, Vida formed a solid partnership for the Croatian national team, who knocked England out in the semi-finals.

However, he could now be on his way out of the Turkish Super Lig with offers from England and Italy on the table.

Wolves could offer the 29-year-old the chance to join Nuno Espirito Santo’s project and he would operate in a back three.

Conor Coady and Willy Boly have been mainstays in the back-line. Meanwhile, Romain Saiss and Ryan Bennett alternate as the third centre-back.

Vida could improve Nuno’s options in defence. And perhaps this could allow Saiss to make the full-time transition into central midfield.

But the West Midlands outfit face a battle from some of Europe’s top clubs to land the Croatian centre-half.
