Wolverhampton Wanderers’ struggles at the back last season were well-documented.

A big part of the success of the two seventh-placed finishes in the Premier League was down to being solid in defence.

Last term though, that solidity was often nowhere to be seen.

Arguably, one or two new centre-halves are needed this summer.

Supposedly Wolves are in a decent financial position. That said, sales are expected, and there has been talk of the need to be creative in the transfer market.

That could potentially mean the club will be going bargain-hunting.

One man who should perhaps be of interest to Wolves and classifies as a bargain is Tosin Adarabioyo.

The star signed for Fulham last year and despite their relegation, he regularly came in for praise from fans and the media.

Tosin’s composure on the ball, mobility and strength are his standout qualities. He also stands at 6ft 4in tall and is fantastic in the air.

Fulham conceded just three goals from set-pieces in 2020/21, and Tosin certainly played a big part in that impressive record.

Wolves were, at times, atrocious defending set-pieces last term.

It can be argued, therefore, that Tosin would potentially go some way to helping Wolves improve in that particular area.

The player has a £10 million buy-out clause in his contract, according to Fabrizio Romano.

That really does make him a steal for whoever pays it.

Tosin is still only 23, and now has a full season of Premier League experience under his belt.

He may have suffered relegation with Fulham, but he could undoubtedly do a job for another Premier League side.

New manager Bruno Lage could do a lot worse than to request him as his first signing at Molineux.
