Fernando Marcal – B

Marcal has arguably been the pick of the bunch for Wolves.

Fans were pretty exciting as the Brazilian signed for a reported £1.78 million, fresh from contesting a Champions League semi-final with Lyon against Bayern Munich.

That excitement has been justified weeks down the line, with £35,000-a-week star Marcal (Spotrac) proving a solid option for Nuno at left-back or left wing-back.

Rayan Ait-Nouri – B-

Ait-Nouri has made a handful of appearances so far and has been, largely, pretty exciting.

He looks like he could be a really strong attacking outlet for Wolves the more he gets used to that left wing-back role.

He’s still young and quite raw, and he’ll have bad games here and there, but his promise is undeniable.

Nelson Semedo – C

In all honesty, most Wolves fans would have expected more.

The question marks about the defensive side of his game were there, and the way he conceded the last-minute penalty against Aston Villa was a concern.

He hasn’t contributed any goals or assists so far, but hopefully those will soon come the more he gets used to English football.

 

Fabio Silva – C-

He hasn’t had too many opportunties, and it will take time before Silva shows what he’s capable of.

There have been glimpses here and there – his two goals in the Papa John’s Trophy against Doncaster Rovers were very well taken.

His time will come, but for now the 18-year-old is just getting a feel for English football and also getting comfortable with his huge £35.6 million fee (BBC Sport).

Vitinha – C-

Like Silva he hasn’t seen too many minutes at Molineux yet.

The longer Leander Dendoncker, Ruben Neves and Joao Moutinho don’t provide any assists, the more you have to feel a proper chance will soon come for Vitinha’s.

Ki-Jana Hoever – N/A

Hoever cannot be graded as he has only played 29 minutes of Premier League football so far.

Semedo is firmly established at right-back- right wing-back, so the Dutchman will have to be patient.
