One of Wolves centre-back duo Toti Gomes or Yerson Mosquera will ‘probably’ head out on loan next season.
That is according to The Athletic today, who say whatever happens will be dependent on how many senior centre-halves are available.
It is hoped and expected, that Wanderers will be busy this summer.
Romain Saiss will be leaving the club after a six-year stint.
And it could be that Willy Boly departs having struggled to recapture his best form after returning from his latest injury problems.
Then there is Max Kilman and Conor Coady, both of whom will surely remain Wolves players ahead of 2022/23.
The club, realistically, need to be bring in two central defenders this summer.
It is a position that hasn’t been addressed for a few windows now, and we have been seeing in recent weeks a clear need to strengthen.
It seems that one of Gomes or Mosquera will leave the club on loan, which would free up space for new faces.
Gomes, of course, returned to Wolves in January from his spell at Grasshoppers, and covered the absence of Saiss while he was on AFCON duty.
The 23-year-old did really well, and also impressed last weekend against Norwich City – his first appearance for three months.
Mosquera has endured a really frustrating season.
The Colombian starlet joined the club last summer as Bruno Lage’s first signing.
Having looked really promising in pre-season, but then suffered a hamstring injury.
He recovered from that after a few weeks but then, just 10 minutes into his first competitive appearance against Tottenham Hotspur in the Carabao Cup, Mosquera suffered another, much more severe, hamstring injury.
That put him on the sidelines for around five months.
Mosquera would surely be the player to go out on loan after Gomes emergence
It is hard to imagine Gomes being sent out on loan before Mosquera.
He’s looked pretty solid across his four appearances for the first-team this season, and Lage has been pleased with his contributions.
He recently suggested that Gomes could form part of a rebuild.
It would be no surprise to see Mosquera joining another club on loan ahead of 2022/23.
The £4.5 million signing from Atletico Nacional has missed a lot of football this season, and may just need a stint away from Molineux to get back up to speed.
The star – whom Lage recently suggested had been feeling a bit impatient – could do with getting regular football at senior level to get him prepared for the Premier League.
