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.
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:
Miles better than last season

The man is another player that will never get the credit he deserves. Some people say oh he’s not an upgrade on doc. Yes he is!

Can’t finish but good overall

Nice to see everyone’s more concerned about his finishing than his defending. Think we can call that progress after last season’s whinges

A real positive start to the season, great to see him looking strong defensively whilst getting up well to support the attack. Abit more composure infront of goal and he could of been our top goal scorer so far.
