Wolves slipped to defeat against Burnley and wasted a great chance to boost their hopes of European football for next season.
A Matej Vydra goal was the difference between the two sides at Turf Moor, as Bruno Lage’s side once again failed to find the net.
Wolves did play some decent football in the first-half.
But ultimately the team ran out of ideas, and after Burnley scored there was very little threat from the visitors, and the Clarets defended well.
The two centre-halves for Burnley were particularly impressive, and James Tarkowski arguably showed why Wolves should be going after him this summer.
The star made five clearances in the game, and also won 5/8 of his duels. And he had a passing accuracy of 88% (Sofascore).
It was just a solid showing from the 29-year-old.
There was a point when VAR checked for possible violent conduct after a tangle with Raul Jimenez, and maybe he was slightly lucky.
But Tarkowski’s performance had grit, and efficiency.
He didn’t give Fabio Silva, Hwang Hee-chan or Jimenez much at all.
The star, who has made the most blocks in the Premier League so far this season, is set to leave Burnley at the end of the season when his contract expires.
After seeing his commanding display against Wolves, Bruno Lage has surely got to push for the club to make a free swoop on him in the next window.
James Tarkowski shows Wolves he’d be worth moving for on a free
Wolves should not think twice about trying to sign Tarkowski on a free transfer this summer.
The star obviously has lots of Premier League experience, and is very durable and also a leader.
He would be a tremendous addition for the club, and making such a signing would allow for more money to be spent on other deals.
Wolves were linked with the player last summer. Hopefully, officials still retain an interest in him.
