Wolves Face Competition For Favilli

Three Serie A Sides Also Keen

Wolves transfer news

Newly-promoted Wolverhampton Wanderers face competition from three Serie A clubs for the Juventus striker Andrea Favilli.

The 21-year-old only joined Juve in June from second division side Ascoli for a fee of €7.5million.

Juve know Favilli well. He had a brief spell on loan at the club during the 2015-16 campaign while he was at Livorno, but he was restricted to one six-minute appearance in Serie A plus four appearances in the UefaYouth League.

The Italy under-21 international spent last season at Serie B side Ascoli following his €3million transfer from Livorno in the summer of 2017. He made 12 appearances in Serie B scoring five goals.

Juventus are looking to loan Favilli out for next season. They may even take a permanent sale with the option of a buyback if Financial Fair Play regulations deem that necessary.

Wolves are interested, but they face competition from Udinese, Sampdoria and Genoa, the latter being the front-runners in the race to secure his signature.
