Wolverhampton Wanderers fans are now looking forward to the new season.
The European Championships are over, and there is a lot of hurt today following England’s defeat to Italy in the final.
But for some, club football already can’t come soon enough.
It’s a big season coming up for Wolves, who are under a new man in Bruno Lage.
The 45-year-old has a big job on his hands, and Fosun have work to do to ensure they set him on the right path.
Wolves have made two signings so far this summer; Yerson Mosquera joining from Atletico Nacional and Francisco coming in from Barcelona on loan.
The club’s all-time top goalscorer Steve Bull is excited by the acquisition of Trincao in particular, but has insisted Wolves must bring in some experience.
He told the Express & Star: “A bit of experience at centre-half and in midfield would just top it off, to get the season off to a good start.
“I think that’s what they’re crying out for at the moment. I think Bruno will want that as well.
“As long as he’s got strength in depth all over the pitch, he’ll be happy.”
It is a relatively young squad.
At present, only Willy Boly, Raul Jimenez, John Ruddy, Romain Saiss, Fernando Marcal and Rui Patricio are aged 30 or over, with the latter reportedly set to join AS Roma.
Bull is right, Lage needs experienced stars
Wolves definitely need one or two to come in with lots of experience under their belt.
It’s important to have the right blend of ages and at the moment, the squad probably is a little heavy on young prospects.
The 28-year-old would be a decent addition.
Hopefully Joao Palhinha, 26, comes in too.
