Wolves are reportedly interested in signing Renato Sanches in January – and Fosun pulling off a transfer will improve the strained relationship with fans massively.

A lot of people felt really let down by the owners at the end of the last transfer window.

It was a good start to the summer, with the likes of Francisco Trincao and Jose coming in, as well as exciting prospect Yerson Mosquera.

But Wolves didn’t really build on that good start.

The lack of an experienced central defender was a difficult one to take.

And then the failure to land Sanches on loan, with reports emerging a day before deadline day, was another frustration.

Sanches would undoubtedly have been a hugely exciting signing.


There has been talk of Wolves making a bid in January.

But recently, Arsenal and AC Milan have become linked, and Sanches has actually talked up the Italian giants in recent days.

It is looking like Wolves will have a fight on their hands to get him if they do want him.

It’s a big test for Fosun, and if they can sign him from this point then it will go some way to getting sceptical fans back onside.

Fosun can appease fans by signing Renato Sanches for Wolves

It will be a great look for Fosun if Wolves end up winning the race for Sanches from this point.

The midfielder seems to be quite coveted now, and a transfer could be difficult to pull off.

So, beating off the competition will prove to the supporters that Fosun are still ambitious and fully committed to growing Wolves as a club.

A lot of people have lost a bit of faith since the summer. But Fosun signing Renato Sanches would be a real statement of intent.
