February 28 According to the latest reports from German media Kicker reporters George Moissidis and Thomas Hiete, Wolves
Wolfsburg have been exploring the transfer market for a long time, and they have a goal and plan for the midfield in their minds.
The goal of the central defender is Japanese international Yoki Ito, who plays for Stuttgart.
Stuttgart only spent 500,000 euros to buy the central defender, and this season, the 23-year-old played a total of 20 times for Stuttgart and started 19 times.
Ito’s contract with Stuttgart expires in 2025, as does Wolfsburg’s Dutch central defender Van der Ven.
For Wolfsburg, if possible, they hope to keep van der Ven for another year.
But what happened to Lacroix made them also have to consider the prospect of selling this summer.
After his excellent debut in the 2020/2021 season, RB Leipzig made an offer of more than 20 million euros, but was rejected by Wolfsburg.
As a result, Lacroix is now struggling in the shadow of van der Ven, and it is difficult for Wolfsburg to get a better offer.
Therefore, “selling” at the right time is also a way in line with Wolfsburg’s operating philosophy.
As for Yoki Ito, the prospect of Stuttgart’s possible relegation also helps Wolfsburg.
