Wolves fans rate Nelson Semedo's start to the new season

Wolverhampton Wanderers defender Nelson Semedo is now into his second season at the club.

His debut campaign was rather a mixed bag.

He arrived at the club with a big reputation, and also a big price tag.

BBC Sport reported he cost £37 million, although The Athletic later reported that that total is dependent on Wolves winning a European competition.

So far he has cost £29 million, which is how it’s likely to stay.

That’s still a lot of money, and some people felt a little underwhelmed by his first season.

He certainly had a shaky start, but improved in the second half of the season.

Despite not always being consistent, he kept Ki-Jana Hoever out of the side.

With the arrival of Bruno Lage in the summer, some felt Semedo might be one of the players to flourish.

One thing is for sure, Semedo is certainly looking dangerous in 2021/22 early doors.

He has had at least three clear-cut chances so far, with two of those coming against Watford.

He just seems to keep popping up in very advanced positions and with better finishing, we would perhaps be talking about him as being one of the best players in the Premier League so far this term.

That’s because defensively he has tightened things up.

He looks much more assured, which is very promising indeed.

On social media, it seems quite a few fans are pleased with what they have seen from Semedo so far:
