Wolverhampton Wanderers reportedly plan an £18m bid for Olympiacos centre-back Pape Abou Cisse.

Wolverhampton Wanderers are reportedly preparing an £18m bid for Olympiacos defender Pape Abou Cisse.

The 23-year-old, who has made 50 appearances for Olympiacos since a 2017 move from Ajaccio, is believed to be a transfer target for Arsenal ahead of the 2018-19 campaign.

The Gunners have been credited with an interest in the centre-back amid suggestions that the Greek club could be prepared to sell for £10m in this summer's transfer window.

According to Gavros.Gr, though, Wolves are on the verge of launching an £18m offer for the towering defender, who was a part of the Senegal squad that competed at this summer's Africa Cup of Nations.

Nuno Espirito Santo's side have been quiet in the current transfer market, with their only movement seeing Raul Jimenez and Leander Dendoncker complete permanent moves following loan spells at the club.
