Wolves: Old Gold plotting move for Pau Torres
Wolverhampton Wanderersare plotting a move to sign Villarreal defender Pau Torres in January, according to reports.
Despite the centre-back still having just undertwo yearsremaining on his deal with the La Liga club, he has beenheavily linkedwith an exit in recent transfer windows, although any kind of switch has failed to materialise before the deadline.
The Spaniard has a€60m(52.4m) release clause in his contract, and after officially now being put on the market, it sounds like there are several potentialPremier Leaguesuitors waiting to snap him up.

According to90min, Wolves manager Julen Lopetegui is believed to be a keen admirer of Torres and is looking at options, including the 25-year-old, to bolster his new-look defence in the winter market.
Villarreal are unlikely to ask for the defenders full release clause, but they will demand a club-record fee for his services, which will be upwards of their previous 40m high.
Aston Villa, Chelsea and Tottenham are also mentioned in the report, so there could be plenty of English top-flight competition for the Spain international.
Wolves may find it difficult to land Torres in the New Year given that level of competition, but its a real show of ambition from Lopetegui to be targeting a player who content creatorRyan Haberdescribed as a dream transfer target.
The 6 foot 2 colossus has16goal contributions for his club and currently averagesfourclearances per game, highlighting his impact at both ends of the pitch.
The Old Gold being bottom of the table wont be an attractive prospect to potential signings, but a manager with arich CVin Lopetegui could help to convince targets to get on board with his new long-term project.
