The Belgian international has been in fine form for Wolfsburg this season and has coined the nickname ‘assist king’ after creating 27 goals this campaign as well as scoring 15 times in helping Die Wölfe secure automatic qualification for the Champions League next year.
His stock has certainly risen since being sold by Chelsea 18 months ago and is thought to be on the radar of a number of clubs in Europe including Arsenal and United, who are both expected to make additions to their respective squads in the summer in order to challenge the Blues for the league title next season.
However, it would appear that a bid of £35million won’t be enough to entice the German outfit to sell after comments in the Metro from sporting director Klaus Allofs:
“(£35m) seriously? We wouldn’t even flinch at an amount like that.” he insisted.
