Napoli frontrunners to land Wolverhampton Wanderers centre-back Max Kilman

Wolverhampton Wanderers have expressed their willingness to allow the departure of Max Kilman during this upcoming summer transfer window.

Max Kilman, who has been an integral part of the team, has amassed an impressive record of 89 appearances for Wolverhampton Wanderers, managing to find the back of the net once. According to the renowned football database Transfermarkt, Kilman currently holds a market value of 30 million euros.

Despite recently parting ways with Nathan Collins and Conor Coady, Wolves are actively preparing for further player exits. According to reputable sources such as The Mail, Italian club Napoli has positioned themselves as frontrunners in securing the services of Kilman, with a potential fee of approximately £35 million.

Although Napoli’s initial bid was turned down last week, an enhanced offer is expected to be sufficient in finalizing the deal. While Kilman himself may not be particularly keen on leaving his current club, Wolverhampton Wanderers could be left with no choice but to let him go due to Financial Fair Play concerns.

Should Kilman indeed leave, Wolves would face a predicament with only Craig Dawson and Toti Gomes remaining as their center backs for the upcoming season. This shortage in defensive options could prove to be a significant challenge for the team as they navigate the demands of the new campaign.


In conclusion, Wolverhampton Wanderers are open to the possibility of allowing Max Kilman to depart from their ranks this summer. The talented defender’s future could lie with Napoli, who are actively pursuing his signature with an improved offer expected to seal the deal. However, the decision to let Kilman go may present difficulties for Wolves, leaving them with limited options in their defensive lineup for the upcoming season.
