Bruno Lage has again stated his desire to bring in new players at Wolverhampton Wanderers.
The 45-year-old is keen to work with not only a bigger squad than he has currently, but a squad with more quality options.
Lage stated publicly that he wanted new faces as the summer window drew to a close.
He made those comments a couple of days before the deadline and after the loan signing of Hwang Hee-chan.
But no new players would follow the South Korea international to Molineux.
There were links to the likes of Sven Botman and Renato Sanches, but ultimately it was a disappointing day for Wolves fans.
There was even more frustration when Jeff Shi said in an interview that the budget wasn’t an issue. He just suggested deals would only be done if they could sign upgrades on the current crop.
Now, Lage has reiterated his previous message.
He said (via Express & Star): “We can see things changing so quickly because we take the best from the players.
“If the players don’t have things to give us, we don’t have that ability to change.
“As a manager I want more for the players. Not improving, because they know how to play, but creating the relationship in the way we want to play.
“If we don’t have guys who can do other things, we need to find them. It’s not just our way to play, we can play a different system also.”
The message is crystal clear
There is no beating around the bush with this.
Lage’s demands are clear, and it’s on Fosun to deliver him the tools he needs.
He is doing a good job with what he has at the moment, but there is potential for Wolves to improve significantly with a couple of additions.
Following this latest reiteration, it is difficult to see Fosun not acting, especially given pressure from the fans has rightly cranked up after the last deadline day.
