Wolves have been linked with a transfer move for Torino midfielder Matt Garbett.

What’s the news?

According to a recent report from The Sun, Wolves are one of the clubs keeping tabs on the player alongside the likes of Sevilla and fellow Premier League sides Everton and Leicester City.

After starting his career in his home country of New Zealand, the London-born midfielder joined Swedish club Falkenberg in the 2020 January transfer window.

Having made 26 appearances there, the 20-year-old then joined Torino’s U19 squad in the previous summer transfer window.

Since then, the midfielder has made 30 appearances for the Italian club’s youth side, scoring three goals and delivering two goals in the process.

For New Zealand, the youngster has already made nine appearances in which he’s managed to score one goal, which highlights just how highly rated he is at such a young age.

Prior to that, he racked up ten international appearances for New Zealand’s U17 side, scoring four goals in the process.

One of those goals was described as “terrific” on Twitter by presenter Chris Chang, highlighting that he has a talent for scoring goals from midfield.

The next Moutinho

Back in 2020, after previously being linked with a move to Everton, Garbett was described as a “hotshot” by journalist Phil Cadden.

Taking that into account, it seems as though the Old Gold could land a rather exciting and talented young player if they are able to secure the starlet’s signature this summer.

Wolves midfielder Joao Moutinho is set to see his current contract at Molineux run out at the end of the month, so there’s every chance that he could be waving goodbye to the Midlands club in the coming weeks.

Do you think Joao Moutinho will leave Wolves this summer?

Yes

Yes

No

No

With that in mind, a young talent such as Garbett could be their ideal long-term replacement for the 35-year-old veteran.

Having shown an early knack for finding the back of the net throughout his short career, the Torino talent could well end up following in the footsteps of Moutinho, who has scored five goals and provided 23 assists in 176 games.

Even if the Portugal international does end up staying at the club for a bit longer, it could still be worth them signing the New Zealand starlet as give him the chance to develop and grow even further.
