According to reports from David Ornstein in the Athletic, Wolves have rejected a substantial bid from Napoli for English center-back Max Kilman.
Napoli is actively searching for a new center-back, preferably one who can play on the left-hand side following the departure of Kim Min-jae to Bayern Munich.
Ornstein’s report states that Napoli turned to the Premier League and identified Kilman as a potential successor to Kim. Since joining Maidenhead in 2018, Kilman has made 107 first-team appearances for Wolves.
Napoli’s offer for Max Kilman was reportedly €35m, but it has been turned down. It is understood that Wolves, likely to sell center-back Nathan Collins to Brentford this summer, are unwilling to part ways with Kilman for anything less than €40m.
Max Kilman is currently under contract with Wolves until the summer of 2026, with the club having the option to extend the deal by another year. For now, both Wolves and Kilman are reportedly not under any pressure to accept Napoli’s proposal.
