Wolves are reportedly still talking to Lazio about a possible move for defender Wallace before the transfer window slams shut. Wallace, 24, has been with the Serie A outfit since 2016 but was linked with a switch to Molineux last summer.
Nothing materialised on that occasion but Italian outlet La Lazio Siamo Noi are suggesting that there is ongoing dialogue about a move to the West Midlands. The former Brazil Under-23 ace is represented by Jorge Mendes, whose links to Wolves mean that there is a strong possibility that the deal may happen this summer.

A fee of around £6.5million has been agreed, with the player said to be keen on playing for the Black Country outfit. Wolves reportedly want a loan deal with an option to buy but the Italians favour selling the centre back outright, a stumbling block that needs to be overcome for the move to happen.
