Brentford is in talks with Wolves for Nathan Collins after their £21m bid was rejected. The club’s manager, Thomas Frank, is optimistic that they can land a ready-made Premier League centre back for £25m. Collins has been on Brentford’s radar for some time now, but agreeing on the fee has proven to be tricky.
Wolves are determined to make a profit on a player they only signed a year ago. However, it remains unclear how much of a profit they want to make and whether or not they will accept Brentford’s offer. Negotiations between the two clubs are ongoing.
Frank is eager to add a new centre-back to his side as he prepares for next season. He believes that Collins would be an excellent addition to his squad due to his physicality and technical ability.
Collins made 29 appearances for Wolves last season and impressed many with his performances. At just 20 years old, he still has plenty of room for improvement and could become one of the best defenders in the league if given enough playing time.
Brentford will need to strengthen their squad significantly if they hope to avoid relegation from the Premier League next season. Signing Collins would be an important step towards achieving this goal.
