Wolverhampton Wanderers could potentially be quite busy this summer.

The club will be finishing in and around mid-table this season after finishing seventh in each of the last two campaigns.

There are a variety of explanations for this, and the goal next term will no doubt be to get back up the table and compete for European qualification.

While fans will hope for a couple of big names, perhaps it’s worth the club looking at the three clubs that have gone down, with Sheffield United, West Bromwich Albion and Fulham in possession of some decent players:

Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa (Fulham)

Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa has been one of the standout players for a Fulham side that has struggled in 2020/21.

Fulham may be down, but the midfield dynamo routinely impressed this season with his ability to break the lines in midfield.

Anguissa is incredibly effective at dribbling from those deeper positions and getting the team up the pitch, bursting past players with ease.

He’s miles too good for the Championship, and could be the mobile box-to-box player Wolves could really do with, and a lovely complement to the technicians like Joao Moutinho and Ruben Neves.

Sander Berge (Sheffield United)

Sheffield United may have a hard time keeping hold of Sander Berge this summer, and Wolves should be looking to see if a deal can be struck.

One gets the feeling that Leander Dendoncker could use some competition, and Berge is a similar type of player, albeit less inclined to go from box-to-box.

He’s someone that could play that holding midfield role and allow Ruben Neves to play a little further forwards to make better use of his passing range and creativity.

6ft 5in enforcer Berge would also come in handy for Wolves on set-pieces, something that has been a real struggle for Nuno’s side in 2020/21.

He supposedly now has a £35 million release clause (Sky Sports), so he may not come cheap, but he undeniably has huge potential.

Matheus Pereira (West Bromwich Albion)

He only signed permanently last year, but Matheus Pereira may well agitate for a move following West Brom’s relegation to the Championship.

The Brazilian is a super player who is clearly too good to be playing in the second tier.

His goal against Arsenal at the weekend was quite something, and Wolves could do with another versatile forward capable of scoring goals and providing magic.

Potentially unlikely given the rivalry, but how sweet it would be if Wolves rubbed salt in the Baggies’ wounds and actually managed to poach Pereira this summer.
