In addition to Jose Sa and Francisco Trincao, another of Wolves’ summer signings has quietly enjoyed a good start to the 2021/22 season.
Full-back Bendeguz Bolla was brought in by the club from Fehervar for a reported fee of £800,000 (The Athletic).
The club decided to loan him straight out, with Grasshoppers the club to benefit once again.
The Swiss outfit, which is owned by the wife of Fosun International’s Guo Guangchang, have taken several of Wolves’ promising young players on loan in recent times, including the likes of Leonardo Campana, Toti Gomes and Oskar Buur.
It has been a promising start so far for Bolla.
The 21-year-old has started every Swiss Super League game so far, and recently opened his account against FC Sion with a thunderbolt from long range.
He then scored in the next game against FC St. Gallen.
Bolla is certainly making an impression operating as a right wing-back, which is great news for Wolves.
Hopefully he can continue to thrive, as he is already eyeing a first-team chance next season.
He said: “I’m hoping to be able to join the team for the summer preparations for the next season, but I know what I need to do to develop, and I’m working on it here at Grasshoppers.”
Bolla’s efforts at club level have led to chances with the Hungary national team.
He actually made his debut in April of this year against Cyprus, and recently caught the eye against England. He has four caps to his name thus far.
Encouraging signs over Bolla
It seems Bolla is having a good time over in Switzerland so far.
Grasshoppers have only just been promoted and they are already fifth in the league table (in a division of 10 teams).
Hopefully he can sustain this kind of form for as a long as possible.
If he can do that, then Lage will surely be at least taking a look at him in pre-season next year.
