Prominent Premier League outfit Wolverhampton Wanderers have made it clear that they are willing to sanction the departure of Max Kilman during the summer transfer window.
Kilman, who made his debut for the England national futsal team at a tender age of 18, boasts an impressive tally of 25 caps for the Three Lions. However, his futsal career was temporarily halted when he inked a deal with Wolves in August 2018. Notably, Kilman also had the option to represent either Russia or Ukraine at the international level due to his parents’ nationality.
Having become an integral figure within the squad, Kilman has accumulated an impressive record of 89 appearances for Wolverhampton Wanderers, netting a solitary goal. According to the highly regarded football database Transfermarkt, the market value attributed to Kilman currently stands at a substantial 30 million euros.
Although Nathan Collins and Conor Coady have recently bid farewell to the club, Wolves are actively preparing for further player departures. Reliable sources, including The Mail, suggest that Italian giants Napoli are leading the race to secure Kilman’s services, with a potential transfer fee in the region of £35 million.

While Napoli’s initial bid faced rejection last week, an improved offer is anticipated to be sufficient in concluding the deal. Despite Kilman’s reluctance to leave his current club, Wolverhampton Wanderers may find themselves with no alternative but to part ways with the player due to concerns surrounding Financial Fair Play regulations.
In the event of Kilman’s departure materializing, Wolves would encounter a challenging scenario, with only Craig Dawson and Toti Gomes remaining as viable center-back options heading into the upcoming season. This dearth of defensive choices could pose a significant hurdle for the team as they strive to navigate the rigorous demands of the approaching campaign.
To summarize, Wolverhampton have signaled their readiness to permit Max Kilman’s departure this summer. The talented defender’s future could potentially lie with Napoli, who are actively pursuing his signature, with an improved offer predicted to finalize the transaction. However, the decision to part ways with Kilman could present Wolverhampton with difficulties, leaving them with limited defensive alternatives for the upcoming season.
