Wolverhampton Wanderers have identified Athletic Bilbao centre-back Unai Nunez as a summer transfer option as the club remain keen to bolster their defensive options.

Nunez, 23, has become one of Europe’s most highly-rated centre-backs after enjoying an impressive campaign last season, featuring 60 times in all competitions for his La Liga side.

The right-footed centre-back has been linked with several top-flight clubs in recent times, however, CaughtOffside have recently obtained exclusive information from a source that Premier League side Wolves have joined the race to sign the talented Spaniard.

We understand that Athletic Bilbao are not willing to negotiate their star defender’s contractual release clause which stands at €30m.
