Wolverhampton Wanderers are eyeing up a move for Mexican youngster Stéphano Carrilo after his recent appearances in the U17 World Cup.
That’s according to journalist Yeudiel Pacheco, who says the Premier League duo, alongside Feyenoord and Copenhagen are thinking about moves for the 17-year-old.
He reports that Carrillo has earned himself attention from clubs in Europe after establishing himself as the star of the Mexican U17s in their recent appearances in the World Cup.
He bagged a goal against Venezuela U17s and two goals and an assist in a 4-0 win over New Zealand’s U17s in the tournament before Mexico were eventually knocked out in the last 16 courtesy of a 5-0 defeat to Mali.
He was unable to make an impact on that game, but the tournament continued his fine performances for his nation’s youth set up, for whom he has 15 goals and two assists in 18 games to date.
Those performances have not gone unnoticed and Pacheco reports that he’s ended up in the ‘portfolio’ of Newcastle, Wolves, Feyenoord and Copenhagen.
These four teams have ‘already asked about him’ according to the journalist, while teams from MLS are also showing an interest.
He later clarified that none of them can make a move for the player until he turns 18, which won’t be happening until March next year.
Whether he would be interested in a switch to either side isn’t mentioned, or even what a deal would cost, just that Newcastle and Wolves are keeping an eye on him and have already made initial enquiries.
