Leo Bonatini says the possibility of playing for Wolverhampton Wanderers again ‘would be nice’.

The striker is currently on a two-year loan at Swiss outfit Grasshopper, where he has been since the start of the season.

The 27-year-old has enjoyed a decent campaign, and is hoping to help his side achieve promotion to the Swiss Super League.

Currently Grasshopper sit top of the pile but only by virtue of having a better goal difference than FC Thun, and two games remain.

Bonatini has scored 11 goals so far this term, and he’s hoping for a good second year.

The Brazilian – whose last Wolves appearances came back in November 2018 against Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League – has caught up with the club’s official website about his time in Switzerland, and he has been asked about his future.

He said: “I still have one more year here at Grasshoppers and after that, I have one more year left in my contract at Wolves.

 

“I don’t often think too far ahead but the possibility of playing for Wolves again would be nice.

“Anything could happen during this time, things happen fast in football. Injuries happen and if you are in the right place at the right time, you can grab opportunities.”

Bonatini will need incredible second season

Realistically it’s probably unlikely Bonatini will turn out in Old Gold again.

He is going to need the season of his life at Grasshopper next season if he is to convince those back at Molineux that he is worth another shot.

By the time he returns to the Black Country though, Wolves could have a much improved Fabio Silva, a back-to-normal Raul Jimenez and perhaps a new signing.
