Wolves have been in negotiations with Brentford regarding the valuation of the player and it is believed that the Premier League side are happy to meet the £12million asking price.

The Bees signed Konsa from Charlton Athletic for just £2.5million last summer and he went on to make a total of 42 starts in the Championship in the last campaign.

Wolves are known for playing with a back five and they are currently weighing up their options as they wish to have someone who can compete with Ryan Bennett on the right side of their back line.

Although £12million may seem a hefty price for someone with such little experience, Wolves aren’t afraid of taking a gamble on players who can be of potential in the future.

The European hopefuls tend to like playing the ball out from the back due to their formation and Konsa has previously been described as having a real ability to carry the ball out from the back with precision and confidence unparalleled in the lower leagues.
