Wolves contact Man Utd with request to sign attacker in January

Wolves are interested in securing the services of Manchester United winger Amad Diallo on a loan deal during the upcoming January transfer window, according to a report. Amad had a successful loan spell at Sunderland in the Championship last season but has faced setbacks this season due to injury. As a result, Manchester United is considering options to help him regain his form in the new year.

Erik ten Hag, the manager, is planning to place Amad in the under-21 squad to provide him with regular playing time. However, Wolves have now expressed their interest in taking Amad on loan in January, disrupting Manchester United’s plans.

Wolves are in need of a replacement for Pedro Neto, who is also sidelined due to injury and will be unavailable for the foreseeable future. Their offer to provide Amad with regular playing time in the Premier League, rather than at the youth level, may be more appealing to him than what Ten Hag had in mind.

Amad Diallo, the Ivory Coast international, needs to make the most of the remainder of this season, as he only has one year left on his contract with Manchester United. His future with the club or a potential transfer hinges largely on his performance between now and the summer, so playing time is crucial.

The report, however, does not mention whether Manchester United will accept or reject any loan offer from Wolves for the former Atalanta forward.

Amad has made just nine appearances for Manchester United, scoring one goal, but his loan spell at Sunderland was more successful, where he scored 14 goals in 42 appearances.

Interestingly, Football Transfers reports that Wolves have had a long-standing interest in Amad, having made an approach for him last summer after his time in the Scottish Premiership and even scouted him before his signing with Manchester United in early 2021. If Wolves can secure him in January, it would mark their third attempt.

The report does not specify whether Wolves would seek an option or obligation to purchase Amad at the end of the proposed loan spell.

It’s worth noting that Amad could potentially step in for Pedro Neto at Wolves, who was also on Manchester United’s radar before his recent injury setback. However, a move to Arsenal had been considered more likely for the Portuguese international.

Only three of Amad’s appearances for Manchester United have been in the Premier League, all during the 2020-21 season, so his performance in the top flight remains a point of interest.
