Wolves have just moved to sign Pablo Sarabia – and now the club should be considering go back to Paris Saint-Germain and enquiring about Keylor Navas.
Wanderers fell to a 3-0 defeat against Manchester City at the weekend.
Erling Haaland scored a hat-trick, and it was a rather comfortable afternoon for Pep Guardiola’s side.
Haaland’s third strike will perhaps be the easiest goal he’ll score all season.
Jose Sa attempted to play out from the back and misplaced his pass straight into the path of Riyad Mahrez. He squared for the Norwegian to tap home.
That was the second error from Sa in a matter of days. Against Liverpool in the FA Cup replay, his positioning was highly questionable when Harvey Elliott scored from distance.
Sa has done a lot of great things for Wolves since he signed in the summer of 2021.
But at the moment, his form is a real worry.
It was reported in December that Wolves would see about signing a new backup goalkeeper to bring a greater level of competition. That is something that would allow Matija Sarkic to head out on loan.
Perhaps then, Wolves could take a look at PSG stopper Navas.
According to Mundo Deportivo, the Costa Rica international wants to leave the Parc des Princes, and PSG would be willing to sell for £4.4 million. That’s the same asking price they had for Sarabia.
Leicester City, Bournemouth and Nottingham Forest are all said to have shown interest (Nottingham Post). Maybe Wolves need to get involved too.
Wolves moving for Keylor Navas makes total sense and relationship with PSG is good after Sarabia deal
Wolves completed a deal for Sarabia last week, and should be looking to strike while the iron is hot.
Navas wants out, and PSG are not asking for very much.
He is 36 now and is obviously nearing the end of his career. But Wolves need someone more experienced than Sarkic to push Sa.
Navas remains a decent stopper even in his advancing years. Last season, he finished with a 78.9% save ratio, which ranked him as the third best goalkeeper in Europe’s top five leagues (Planet Football). Furthermore, he is said to be ‘decent’ with his feet.
The cat-like star had great success at Real Madrid, winning one league title and three Champions Leagues. And at PSG, he’s won two league titles and four domestic cups.
He has real pedigree, and would likely be a fantastic addition to the dressing room.
