Wolverhampton Wanderers are reportedly considering a move for former Arsenal goalkeeper Vito Mannone.

The Italian shot stopper, who left the Emirates for Premier League rivals Sunderland two years ago, has fallen out-of-favour under manager Dick Advocaat, with ex-Manchester City ace Costel Pantilimon occupying the number one jersey.

The 27-year-old, a former Italy Under-21 international, kept just three clean sheets in 13 appearances in all competitions for Sunderland last season.

Despite Kenny Jackett’s decision to already bring in Arsenal loanee Emiliano Martinez to provide competition for regular number one Carl Ikeme at Molineux earlier this summer, the Wolves boss is tempted to add another goalkeeper to his ranks as his side seek promotion this term.

However; it is also understood that fellow Championship rivals Hull City and Middlesbrough are also interested in Mannone’s services before the close of the transfer window on September 1.
