Wolves have received a clear message over how much reported target Carlos Alcaraz would cost in the January transfer window.
The 19-year-old midfielder made 42 appearances for Argentine side Racing club this season, having claimed the Champions Trophy and finished second in the league table. Alcaraz scored an extra-time winner for Racing against Boca Juniors in the cup final earlier this month, sparking a melee that ended with ten red cards, including one for the teenager.
The midfielder scored nine goals and provided two assists as he established himself as a first team regular. Wolves have been one of several clubs linked with a move for Alcaraz and his agent has openly suggested how much his client could cost potential suitors.
Sport Witness has reported that Alcaraz has been “targeted by Wolves”, with fellow Premier League side Tottenham also touted as a possible destination. The outlet had previously reported that a “suitable offer” could see the teenager leave Racing as soon as January after an impressive campaign
Italian publication Gazzetta dello Sport reported that Wolves had “asked for information” about Alcaraz, who has been reported to also be a target for both Milan clubs and Porto. Speaking to the Italian press, the player’s agent Sebastian Lopez admitted that he had received interest from an English club.
“We have an option from England and another from Portugal, but neither the directors of Inter nor those of AC Milan have contacted me in these hours. We are waiting,” Lopez told Tuttosport .
He added: “(He costs) around 15 million euros. Although the figure could be lowered by inserting a clause allowing Racing a percentage on future resale.”
