Prem suitors tracking Ismail
Several Premier League clubs are keeping tabs on highly-rated Wolves starlet Zeli Ismail, according to reports.
Ismail, who has come through the ranks at Molineux, is regarded as one of the most exciting talents in England after catching the eye for Wolves and England's youth sides.
The talented winger has been talked about since the age of 14 when he burst onto the scene with England's Under-16s at the Milk Cup tournament in Northern Ireland.
The likes of Chelsea and Manchester City have been credited with an interest in Ismail in the past and a number of other clubs are also tracking his progress.
Ismail is entering the final year of his contract at Wolves and as yet no new deal has been discussed alerting his suitors to his possible availability.
The likes of Fulham, Queens Park Rangers and West Ham are all thought to be weighing up moves for the skilful midfielder as they look to lure him from Molineux.
Wolves would be loath to lose their prize asset, but they could face a fight to keep hold of him if they fail to tie him down to a new deal with Premier League clubs waiting in the wings to snap him up.
