Wolves could save their season with £10 million move for Ruben Amorim

Wolves are heading for a relegation battle. And the club should now consider moving for Ruben Amorim, whose release clause has reportedly now dropped to £10 million.

Yesterday’s 4-0 defeat to Leicester City was the worst moment of a terrible season so far, and the pressure has now cranked up tenfold.

Wolves are only second-bottom of the Premier League table by virtue of a better goal difference than Nottingham Forest.

The team can’t score goals, and the defensive solidity has now been lost.

Many of the players are giving the impression they don’t care all that much. The fact many just went straight down the tunnel after yesterday’s defeat is further suggestion of that.

The situation is alarming to say the least, and it frustrating that the club are happy to let Steve Davis continue in his interim role until 2023.

The reason for that, according to Jeff Shi, is that there are currently no outstanding candidates to succeed Bruno Lage.

Many fans are not buying that.

It has been reported by The Telegraph over the weekend that Amorim, the Sporting CP manager, has seen his release clause slashed to £10 million.

The figure has apparently been lowering the further into his contract (signed in 2020) he has gotten.

Aston Villa want him to replace the sacked Steven Gerrard, and will have no issues paying that compensation to Sporting.

Wolves should not make it so easy for them.

Ruben Amorim could save wilting Wolves, as report reveals he has £10 million release clause

Wolves can’t continue with Davis at the helm.

He’s a great man, and undoubtedly loves the club. But it’s not right for him to be taking the first-team. It feels as though the job is too big for him.

The idea that Amorim’s release clause has reduced should have Wolves interested.

We are talking about one of the brightest young coaches in the game today. He’s Portuguese and speaks very good English. And he plays attacking football that yields goals galore.

£10 million is still a lot of money to pay for a manager.

But Wolves’ situation is desperate. These players need a permanent head coach immediately to provide direction and most importantly, light a fire beneath them.

Failing this, a move for Sean Dyche could be a sensible play.
