Wolverhampton Wanderers are known for going under the radar and signing some hidden gems in the transfer window.
According to the football transfer rumours in British and Spanish media, Wolverhampton are eyeing move for Barcelona midfielder Carles Alena.
The 23-year-old has one year left on his current contract which expires in 2022.
Carles Alena has represented Spain at Under-16, Under-17, Under-19 and Under-21 level, winning 33 caps and scoring 8 goals.
His performances have seen him become the target of many European clubs including Wolverhampton.
Wolverhampton are looking to sign a midfielder and have identified the 23-year-old as potential transfer target. They have built a reputation for recruiting young talent from within Europe, predominantly targeting those with sell-on value and immense potential.
Wolves are in the market for just a handful of statement signings who can improve the first-team.
There is no doubt that Alena will take Wolverhampton’s midfield to a different level.
According to the report, “Wolves are planning a move for Barcelona midfielder Carles Alena. Sport says Barça need to cut their wage bill and, if possible, bring in fees for players. The club are working on it and they’re aware of interest in Aleña from England. According to sources at the club, Wolves are keen on the 23-year-old midfielder. Wolves signed Nelson Semedo from Barça last summer for 30 million euros plus 10 million in add-ons but would expect to pay much less for Aleña. The English side were also linked with Francisco Trincao recently.”
