My Revenge On Ben Foster

After losing the first three games 1-0, but playing some brilliant football, Wolves have rallied, and now have some brilliant momentum going.

Bruno Lage is doing a really good job considering he wasn’t completely backed in the last transfer market.

The ideas he is trying to implement are clear, and his passion and intensity are very much endearing him to the supporters.

He has shown already that he is worthy of being backed by Fosun. Give him the right tools, and it could be the start of an exciting journey.

While the addition of a new centre-back should be the priority in January, there is one player that has again been linked with Wolves who could take the team to the next level.

Wolves targeted Renato Sanches last summer. Fans got very excited, only for the move to collapse on deadline day, amid claims his injury was too prohibitive.

The Telegraph have reported Wolves will likely go back in for the Lille maestro in January.

 

That should be music to Wolves fans’ ears, as he could be the absolute perfect partner for Ruben Neves.

Sanches and Neves partnership would be hugely exciting

At the moment, Neves is at the top of his game playing under the attack-minded Lage.

His showing against Everton was arguably his best of the season so far.

Joao Moutinho has done a great job in there alongside him this term.

As good an engine as he has though, the 35-year-old surely can’t go a full season as a regular in the starting XI.

Signing Sanches would give Neves the perfect complement; the former would provide the energy, mobility and drive, while the latter would bring the technical quality and the control.

Together, Sanches and Neves could be brilliant in the engine room and elevate Wolves to another level.
