Things have gone all quiet on the transfer front at Wolverhampton Wanderers.

The club have made four first-team signings so far, but no one has come through the door since Jose Sa joined on July 15.

Some fans have started to worry, with the new season now just days away.

Of course, the transfer window is open until the end of the month, and it is paramount Wolves bring in a couple more players.

Ideally, a new centre-half and a new central midfielder will be arriving.

A new centre-half is particularly essential with Willy Boly and Yerson Mosquera both injured at the moment.

They aren’t out for too long, but youngster Mosquera is seen as someone for the future and will need some time to bed in.

Perhaps one man Wolves should be looking at is Southampton’s Jannik Vestergaard.

The Denmark international, brilliant at Euro 2020, now has only one year remaining on his contract, and could potentially be departing in the next few weeks.

Vestergaard endured a tricky first season at St. Mary’s, but the last couple of campaigns he has largely been solid.

 

Vestergaard would be a great signing

Wolves ideally need to bring someone in who has experience and Vestergaard, 29, has now clocked up 72 appearances in the Premier League, and has previously made 185 in the Bundesliga.

Perhaps the main attraction with Vestergaard is his aerial prowess.

The star is 6ft 6in tall, and that means he is rarely beaten in an aerial 50-50.

Wolves had serious problems defending set-pieces last term, and there have again been some issues with that in pre-season.

Vestergaard would be a real help with that, and he could potentially also provide a threat at the other end too. He did get three goals for the Saints last term.

It’s been reported Leicester City are keen on him, which perhaps says it all given the Foxes’ outstanding recruitment record in recent years.

It’s claimed he could cost around £15 million, but the player’s contract situation is mentioned.

Wolves should definitely make some inquiries.
