Wolves have reportedly made a late approach to sign Fulham defender Tosin Adarabioyo, as they look to add to their defensive options this summer.


According to a report from Football League World, Wolves have made a very late attempt to sign Adarabioyo from Fulham.


The 23-year-old defender has had a decent start to the season with Fulham, carrying on the impressive form of last season, where even though the club got relegated to the Championship, he was one of the standout players alongside Joachim Andersen.


As a result, he has attracted the interest of several clubs this summer, and Fulham are working hard to try and keep him, and while this looked to be the case this summer due to his £10 million release clause expiring earlier this summer, interest from Wolves has emerged.


Wolves have made contact with Fulham officials over a potential move, and Fulham 'are going to fight hard to keep him at this late stage', and as a result, they have increased his price tag.


While Wolves have not submitted an official bid for him, they have genuine interested in the defender and this move could be dragged out until deadline day.


Adarabioyo played in 34 games in all competitions last season, missing just two games since his arrival from Manchester City last summer.


Wolves have five senior centre-back options, but given their tendency to rotate between five-at-the-back and four-at-the-back formations, then they might need more defenders in case some injuries arise, especially with the likes of Willy Boly only recently returning from injury.
