Wolves loanee Leo Bonatini back among the goals on loan at Grasshoppers

Striker Leo Bonatini has not played for Wolves since 2018 but remains on the club’s books.

He is currently out on loan with Grasshoppers, with whom Wolves have a strong working relationship.

Injury disrupted his start to the season but now he has four goals in his last six Swiss Super League matches.

He was on fire in October, scoring in three consecutive games and now he has seemingly rediscovered his goalscoring touch.

He found the net in Grasshoppers’ 3-2 defeat against Servette over the weekend.

That was his seventh straight league start. His performances this season have seemingly established himself as a regular now.

There does not seem to be much prospect of Bonatini saving his Wolves career now.

But he said last week that he would always be a Wolves fan, no matter what happens in his career.

It is good to see Bonatini scoring on a fairly regular basis, having perhaps found his level in the nicest way possible.

That may help Wolves recoup a transfer fee for them when they do eventually sell him, but for the time being, the striker will be pleased to be back hitting the back of the net again.
