#3 Wolves are interested in signing Moritz Bauer from Stoke City
Nuno Espirito Santo's side is interested in Stoke City right back, Moritz Bauer, as reported by Wolves correspondent, Tim Spiers. The club from West Midlands have made a good account for themselves in the Premier League this season and would want to strengthen the back line to ensure a top half finish at the end of the campaign.
Matt Doherty is already the first choice right back for Wolves but the inclusion of twenty-six year old, Moritz would give Nuno more options down the right-hand side. The Austrian signed for Stoke in January 2018 but found hard to get a regular first team spot. However, he has enough quality to be a reliable back for Doherty in the side.
