Wolverhampton Wanderers have a big decision to make this summer.

Striker Rafa Mir has exploded for SD Huesca in recent weeks, and is giving his loan club hope of staying in La Liga.

The 23-year-old netted his 14th and 15th goals of the season in all competitions on Friday.

His brace against Elche followed another two-goal haul against Levante in the game before, and it’s six goals in the last five games for the Spaniard.

Mir has been coming in for high praise from the Spanish press in 2021, and it seems like he has really matured back in his homeland.

Perhaps inevitably, early reports have now started to surface about a potential exit from Molineux this summer.

Inter Live believe Inter Milan may want Mir if Romelu Lukaku is sold, and last week La Razon claimed reigning Europa League champions Sevilla are on his tail.

One thing is for sure – Wolves have some thinking to do about a player who is clearly getting better and better, as loan signing Willian Jose struggles to prove he’d be worth a permanent transfer fee.

 

And, of course, Wolves have previous for offloading players perhaps before their time.

Wolves don’t want Goncalves repeat

In the summer of 2018, Wolves took the decision to allow young midfielder Pedro Goncalves to depart the club and join Farmalicao, without giving him a proper chance.

It was a fairly low-key exit that few truly acknowledged at the time, but the decision is now looking like a terrible oversight.

Goncalves is now flourishing in his career, and is Sporting CP’s most influential player.

This season he’s scored 16 goals and made five assists, and has been outstanding for a side that are top of the Primeira Liga and are still unbeaten.

His amazing development has seen him become linked with a big-money (£53 million release clause) move back to England (Mirror).

One just wonders whether something similar could happen with Mir if Wolves chose to cash in at this point.
