Wolves loan star Toti Gomes eyeing first-team chance at Molineux

Wolverhampton Wanderers youngster Toti Gomes has stated it’s his desire to become a Premier League player for his parent club.

The 22-year-old has been on loan at Swiss outfit Grasshoppers this season, and has enjoyed a very decent spell.

The defender has been a regular for the second division side, making 29 appearances across all competitions so far.

Grasshoppers are currently top of the Swiss Challenge League by four points, and have the second-best defensive record in the division having shipped 32 goals in 28 games.

Durable Gomes has not missed a single minute so far in 2020/21, scored two goals and picked up just two yellow cards.

It’s been a good little stint for him, and the player is hopeful of potentially making an impact back at Molineux next season.

He told the club’s official website: “I’m not sure what the future holds, but I’m always ready. I’ll be ready for what’s to come for Wolves. Of course, I want to play with the Wolves first-team.

“It’s one of my dreams to play in the Premier League. I’m always ready and I will give everything for it. I’ll do anything I can to achieve that goal.”

“For now, I’m focused here at Grasshoppers. I want to play for Wolves in the Premier League.”

Gomes joined Wolves last year from Estoril and signed a five-year deal at Molineux before heading for Switzerland.

Fans will hope for the signing of a high-profile central defender, but it would be great to see Nuno also promote from within.

There’s been a lot of talk about Dion Sanderson, but Gomes has also had a decent season and could be worth a look at.
