Wolves starlet Chem Campbell has been around the first team picture during pre-season.
Bruno Lage has had a close look at some of the younger players this summer.
That is partially due to the delayed returns from Euro 2020 for some players.
But in Campbell’s case, it might have something to do with the injury absences of wingers Pedro Neto and Daniel Podence.
The 18-year-old is a winger, trying to break through and challenge those stars sooner rather than later.
In an interview with the club website, he admitted he’s watched clips of both Podence and Neto to try and improve.
When asked which first-teamers he tries to emulate, Campbell said: “I would say [Daniel] Podence or Pedro [Neto].
“They’re the players who I’m most similar to. I watch their videos to see their dribbling skills, so I can try and take a part of their game into my own.”
Can Campbell step up?
Neto, Podence, Adama Traore and Francisco Trincao will all be charged with providing the bullets for the strikers from wide areas.
Campbell is looking to push himself into those options and Lage is a manager who is known for promoting youth.
As it stands, Wolves maybe look short on a creative player and if one doesn’t come in before the end of the transfer window, a youngster could get a chance to step up.
Campbell will hope a chance comes his way, provided he isn’t sent on loan between now and when the window closes.
