Wolves need to sign a new striker this summer.
The team frequently struggled in the final third throughout 2021/22.
When the dust settled at the end of the season, Wolves had scored just 38 goals in the Premier League. Only the three relegated clubs scored fewer.
Raul Jimenez finished the campaign with just six to his name. Fans did not expect too much from the Mexican star given the horrendous injury he sustained in 2020/21.
And young Fabio Silva didn’t score any.
The Telegraph report earlier this year that Wolves were going to prioritise the signing of a new striker, with Goncalo Guedes an option.
So far there has been no movement from Wolves, but perhaps the club ought to be considering a move for rising star Armando Broja.
The Chelsea striker spent last season on loan at Southampton, where he made 38 appearances.
Broja scored nine goals, and impressed with his hold-up play, tenacity and finishing.
The 20-year-old now has a lot of admirers, including Newcastle United, Everton and West Ham United, and it’s possible he could be on the move again this summer. The youngster is set to be left out of Chelsea’s pre-season tour of the US (via Ora News).
Bruno Lage has previously spoken about what he wants in a new striker, suggesting a desire to get someone who can win aerial duels (Birmingham Mail).
Armando Broja would be an exciting signing for Wolves
Broja showed last season that he is real talent.
He is still very young, but Broja really held his own last term and at times bullied central defenders in games. Earlier this year, Thomas Tuchel described him as ‘a very unique talent’, ‘robust’ and ‘a goalscorer’.
He is someone that would definitely fit the transfer policy that is currently in place at Molineux.
But Wolves have seemingly been having difficulty signing players this summer, and there have been suggestions that the club are needing to sell to buy.
Perhaps then, Wolves ought to see if Chelsea would be willing to let Broja leave on loan.
