Wolves pair and four Molineux targets named as Golden Boy list is cut to 60

Two Wolves players have remain on the shortlist for the Golden Boy 2021 award.

The 100 list of nominees for the 2021 gong has been chopped to 60 and Rayan Ait-Nouri and Fabio Silva have both made the cut.

Silva’s potential is reflected by his inclusion despite a tough first season at Molineux.

Now, he looks to have bulked up ahead of his second term in English football.

Ait-Nouri spent the 2020/21 season on loan at Molineux from Angers and has since made that move permanent.

Bruno Lage has experimented with playing him on the wing in pre-season, but he was fielded at left wing-back against Nottingham Forest last night.

Elsewhere among the 60, there are inclusions for four of players Wolves have been linked with of late.

Wolves’ interest in Valencia’s Kang-in Lee was reported as recently as last week, with the South Korean turning down four other clubs this summer.

Noni Madueke was also linked last week and has drawn comparisons with Phil Foden, but he has since signed a new contract.

Goncalo Ramos has a £103 million release clause and was rumoured in June. Wolves could do with a new striker.

Ilaix Moriba could be apparently landed for less than £13 million and he is a special, special talent.

If the aforementioned players keep working hard they’ll realise their potential.

It would be great if one of the reported targets set about doing that in an Old Gold shirt.
