Premier League new boys West Ham United have become the first club to make their move for Wolves winger Matt Jarvis.
Since our relegation to the Championship was confirmed the rumour mill has been in full swing in regards to Matt Jarvis.
It seemed a day wouldn’t pass without a new club apparently declaring their interest in Jarvis if you believe everything you read in the newspapers.
Southampton, Everton, Fulham, Newcastle, Sunderland, Tottenham, Stoke, West Ham and Reading have all been linked in recent weeks and that’s just the Premier League clubs!
Italian side Udinese have also been keeping a close eye on Jarvis according to the media. That’s right, Udinese who have qualified for the Champions League play-off rounds after finishing third in this seasons Serie A, ahead of Lazio, Napoli, Internazionale and Roma.
You’d have to think that if that little rumour is true then surely they have to be the favourites to prize him away from Molineux?
But for now it would seem that West Ham are the only club to have made an official offer, which has been rejected according to a report from Sky Sports.
The bid was believed to be in the region of £4million, the price that has been most commonly quoted by the media despite many Wolves fans believing he is worth twice that figure.
Will West Ham make a second approach? Or will their move force another clubs hand to make an offer?
Vital Wolves Comment: With Jarvis under contract until 2015 at least we are in a strong negotiating position and unlike other recent relegated Premier League clubs our finances shouldn’t prompt a quick fire sale.
