Ranking Wolves' summer signings from worst to best

Wolves made a few signings in the summer, but supporters felt somewhat underwhelmed once the window had shut.

With a new manager coming in, many felt a big summer was in store.

Fosun surely had to give Bruno Lage the right tools to work with.

In the end, only five deals were done and Wolves have gone into the season with quite a small squad.

But Lage has done fairly well with the resources at his disposal so far.

Here’s how the five players signed by Wolves rank so far:

N/A Yerson Mosquera

Bruno Lage’s first signing lasted less than 10 minutes on his competitive debut against Tottenham Hotspur in the Carabao Cup.

The Colombian youngster unfortunately suffered a high-grade hamstring injury.

It’s thought he’ll return around mid-January, and fans can’t wait to see what he can bring after looking impressive in pre-season.

#4 Francisco Trincao

There was huge buzz when Trincao signed for Wolves on a season-long loan from Barcelona.

There have been flashes of brilliance from the 21-year-old, but the general feeling is that he has underwhelmed so far.

He has been quite wasteful in front of goal, and lacked conviction in his decision-making at times.

But there is every chance he can come good in England – Pedro Neto took time to settle and then dazzled in his second season with the club.

#3 Rayan Ait-Nouri

Ait-Nouri spent the 2020/21 season on loan with Wolves and looked promising.

His performances convinced club officials to spend a reported £10 million on him in the summer – and so far he is looking like a steal.

The French star has been very lively at left wing-back and seems to have improved defensively compared to last season.

Wolves fans have every reason to be very excited about Ait-Nouri going forwards.

#2 Hwang Hee-chan

Wolves had apparently admired Hwang Hee-chan for some time, before eventually signing him on loan.

It quickly became obvious why that was.

Hwang has looked right at home in the Premier League. he has scored goals, worked very hard for the team and struck up a nice understanding with raul Jimenez.

It really is a no-brainer for the club to trigger their reported £13 million buy option on the South Korean forward.

#1 Jose Sa

Eyebrows were raised when Wolves swooped for Jose Sa to replace Rui Patricio.

The Portugal number one gave three solid years of service at Molineux, and Sa was seen as a bit of a gamble.

But he has come in and been a breath of fresh air so far. His all-round game looks solid, and he might just be an upgrade on his predecessor.

Signed for just under £7 million, Sa is already looking like one of the shrewdest additions at Molineux in years.
