Gibbs-White may be developing into the goalscoring midfielder Wolves have been missing

Many Wolves fans have been somewhat frustrated by the lack of midfield incomings at the club over the last few windows.

Amazingly, Wanderers have technically not brought in any new first-team ready midfielders now since the summer of 2018.

Leander Dendoncker was the last to come in, arriving on loan initially in 2018 and then signing permanently in the summer of 2019.

Bruno Jordao also arrived in the summer of 2019, but was not a first-team ready player.

Wolves have been relying on Dendoncker, Ruben Neves and Joao Moutinho for a while now.

They all have their qualities, but arguably, none of them really possess a goal threat.

Neves has chipped in with four this term, and Moutinho has a couple.

It’s a rarity that goals come from the trio.

Fans will really hope to see the acquisition of a midfielder who knows where the goal is this summer. But there might just be a player on the books at Wolves who can become a solution next season.

Morgan Gibbs-White is currently enjoying his best season ever.

The star is on loan at Sheffield United for the campaign, and has already notched nine goals for the Blades.

His fantastic form as seen him get back into the England U21s picture, and he was on target for his country in the win over Andorra.

According to Tim Spiers, Gibbs-White now has 11 goals in his last 31 appearances for United, Wolves and England. Prior to that, he had three in 94.

Really, Wolves need to be investing in an attacking midfielder with experience.

But Gibbs-White can absolutely have a big part to play for Wanderers next season.

He has really developed a lot this season, and it’s brilliant to see the numbers he is putting up.

He clearly shines in those attacking areas and in between the lines of the opposition defence and midfield.

There are conversations to be had about his future this summer. But hopefully, he’ll want to come back to Wolves and prove himself in the Premier League.

Without doubt, his newfound knack for scoring goals could be of great benefit to Wolves.

Goalscoring has again been an issue at times this season. It would help so much if the team had a midfielder with a good eye for goal.
