As the old adage goes, the best things in life are free!
With practically all clubs being stung by the global health pandemic, there has seemingly never been more emphasis on the potential to pick up players for nothing.
Wolves have a great squad right now, but there is always room for improvement.
Here are three players from the Premier League who can leave their current club for nothing at the end of the 2020/21 season, who Wolves surely have to consider making an approach for…
It’s probably very unlikely, but Gini Wijnaldum is the exact kind of player Wolves could do with.
He’s given Liverpool just over four years of service and proven to be a wonderful signing at £25 million (BBC Sport).
The Dutchman seems like he’s ready for pastures new, and Wolves should absolutely get involved if he’s game to stay in the Premier League.
Wijnaldum is extremely versatile; with Liverpool he holds or goes box-to-box, and for his country he plays more advanced where he scores and assists more regularly.
A Premier League and Champions League winner, he would bring fantastic experience and a winning mentality.
Schar is currently not in the best form at Newcastle, but his time at St. James’ Park has generally been very good.
The star was superb in his first season after arriving from Deportivo La Coruna, making his £3 million fee (BBC Sport) look a snip.
The Switzerland international currently has the feel of someone who needs a fresh environment, and Molineux could be a good move.
With Wolves using the three-man defence with wing-backs, Schar would likely have an easy transition since that’s how Newcastle also set up.
Although they can play centrally, Ki-Jana Hoever and Fernando Marcal are full-backs by trade and Leander Dendoncker is of greater use further forwards, so there may be scope for a new central defensive recruit – especially with Romain Saiss potentially departing on a free.
There was a time when Demarai Gray looked like a potential star for Leicester City.
It hasn’t quite happened for him in recent times at the King Power and he’s currently way down in the pecking order at the club.
Gray is still only 24 though and may want to embark on a new chapter, and Wolves should consider making a free swoop.
Blessed with great pace and trickery, Gray could be a nice option for Nuno, who needs more depth for the two supporting roles for Raul Jimenez.
