La Liga outfits Real Valladolid defender Mohammed Salisu has reportedly emerged as a potential target for Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Having played 27 games in La Liga during the current season, the 21-year-old defender is regarded as a key man at the La Liga outfit.

However, the form of the Ghanaian defender has inevitably led to interest from elsewhere, including from the top teams from Premier League including Manchester United, whose boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has identified him as a perfect defensive partner for Harry Maguire.

According to reports in Spain, Wolves are also planning to make an offer for the player, who has a release clause around £10m.

Although the West Midlands team are well stocked for options at the back, Nuno Espirito Santo is keen to sign a long-term replacement for Ryan Bennett.

Despite having admirers from the Premier League, Marca says that Ligue 1 outfits Rennes are leading the race for Salisu.

Meanwhile, Manchester United are allegedly preparing a summer move for Swansea City’s central defender Joe Rodon.

The 22-year-old Welshman, who came through the academy at the Liberty Stadium, has made 21 Championship appearances for his side during the 2019-20 campaign.

According to the Manchester Evening News, the Swans believe that Premier League interest will arrive during this summer’s transfer market, and United have been mentioned as possible suitors.

The report states that the Steve Cooper’s side ‘expect’ the 20-time English champions to be among the bidders for the star ahead of the 2020-21 season.
