Wolves set to veer away from Jorge Mendes after hiring Fran Garagarza

Garagarza spent 10 years as the sporting director at Eibar.

He’s come in at Wolves to embark on a technical advisor role.

According to Lopetegui, he will ‘help the scouting area with information’.

Wolves reportedly want to have more freedom, with some deals in recent times have been questioned by fans.

Huge fees were spent in the likes of Nelson Semedo and Fabio Silva.

That said, Mendes has facilitated many deals for Wolves that have worked out really well.

The likes of Ruben Neves, Joao Moutinho and others have proven to be fantastic signings for the club.

Wolves will be very interesting to watch in the transfer market following Fran Garagarza appointment

It is going to be very interesting to see what kind of deals Wolves do now that Garagarza is at the club.

Scott Sellars is reportedly leaving the club, so it would appear a lot of the responsibility will fall on the Spaniard in terms of recruitment.

Wolves have a lot to be thankful to Mendes for.

Without doubt, he has made huge contributions to Wanderers becoming an established top-flight club.

But in recent times, there have been some questionable deals. And the idea Wolves could be relying on him a bit less moving forwards should be welcomed.

Garagarza did great work at Eibar, and him working on transfers with Lopetegui is exciting to think about.
