Wolverhampton Wanderers are reportedly in talks with Bruno Lage about him becoming the club’s next head coach.

Fosun are seemingly looking to act fairly quickly following the emotional departure of Nuno Espirito Santo.

The 47-year-old left Molineux this weekend after four years in charge.

The decision was supposedly mutual consent.

According to renowned journalist Fabrizio Romano, Wolves have contacted Lage, who is now the main target to succeed Nuno.

 

He claims talks actually opened last week and are ongoing, and that the ‘last details’ are now being discussed.

According to The Sun, Lage flew to England yesterday and is finalising the move.

From Nuno to Bruno?

Romano’s information tends to be fairly reliable, and so it seems there’s a pretty good chance at this point that Lage will be the next first-team manager at Molineux.

Lage has been out of work since leaving Benfica last year, but did a decent job there and should get the backing of the supporters.
