Wolves eye double swoop for Sasa Kalajdzic and Victor Nelsson

Wolves eye double swoop for Stuttgart £15m-rated striker Sasa Kalajdzic and Galatasaray’s £20m-rated defender Victor Nelsson – as Bruno Lage prepares to lose Nottingham Forest target Willy Boly

  • Wolves are speaking to Stuttgart about a potential £15m deal for Sasa Kalajdzic
  • Kalajdzic has been a prolific goalscorer in the Bundesliga in recent seasons
  • The Premier League outfit are also keen on Galatasaray defender Victor Nelsson
  • Wolves expect to lose Willy Boly before the transfer window closes next week
  • The 31-year-old centre back has been linked with a move to Nottingham Forest 

Wolves remain in talks with Stuttgart over a £15m deal for Austrian striker Sasa Kalajdzic.

Bruno Lage is desperate to improve his options in the final third of the pitch after watching his side score just one goal in their first three league matches this term. Wolves were also the fourth-lowest scorers in the top flight last season.

Wolves have turned their attention to Kalajdzic, who has an impressive scoring record in the Bundesliga, having netted 22 goals in 51 appearances in the division.

Galatasaray defender Victor Nelsson has also emerged as a target for Wolves

Should the 6ft 7in forward arrive at Molineux, he could find himself in direct competition with Raul Jimenez for the lone striker role at the club.

Lage also wants to bring in another defender before the window closes, and Wolves have asked about a deal for £20m-rated Galatasaray’s Denmark international Victor Nelsson.

The 23-year-old centre back has been a regular in the Galatasaray defence since joining from FC Copenhagen last summer.

He is also set to be in Denmark’s World Cup squad later this year, having established himself in the national team over the past 12 months.

Wolves expect Nottingham Forest target Willy Boly to leave the club in the coming days

Nelsson could act as a potential replacement for Willy Boly, who Wolves expect to depart in the coming days.

Boly has been at Wolves since 2017, including an initial loan spell, but was used sparingly by Lage in 2021-22.

He has not featured at all this season, and is now into the final year of his contract at the club.

He is likely to be moved on, and the experienced defender is being targeted by fellow Premier League outfit Nottingham Forest.
