Wolverhampton Wanderers have reportedly made an offer to sign Enzo Loiodice from Dijon.
According to Foot Mercato, the Black Country club have lodged a loan bid with an option to buy the 19-year-old.
Loiodice, a French U20 international, has struggled for game time this term over in Ligue 1, featuring just six times in all competitions.
The lack of minutes for the talented teenager has prompted Wolves into action, with the club viewing him as a good potential addition for the academy initially.
A potential stumbling block is that Dijon would apparently prefer simply to sell.
Paris-born Loiodice has been with the Ligue 1 outfit since 2015 after joining from FC Gobelins.
TBR’s view – Wolves thinking to the future… again
Wolves’ links to Loiodice show the club are, once again, thinking about the long-term.
In recent times the club have done deals for Pedro Neto, Bruno Jordao and Renat Dadashov, which suggest the club are trying to prepare for the future.
Not too much is known about Loiodice given his young age, but Actufoot brought a report in 2018 that quoted one of his coaches issuing a rave review of the starlet.
Gregory Peres said: “Enzo is someone very mature, who is not his age. It’s really rare for young players like him.
“Everyone who saw him grow up and play football is unanimous, he’s someone very intelligent. He is a player who is distinguished by his intelligence and his technical quality.”
Those comments should certainly get Wolves fans at least a little excited about the link.
