Wolves have experienced a mixed bag so far this season.

The club have had some really good results and really good performances.

But there have also been occasions where fans have come away feeling very disappointed.

Bruno Lage probably needs a couple of transfer windows so he can get the players he wants in to improve the team.

But the new manager has undoubtedly had a positive impact on some players in particular.

He has been picking largely the same players, so therefore there can only really be one answer to the question: Who is Wolves Young Player of the Season so far?

Rayan Ait-Nouri is surely Wolves’ Young Player of the Season so far

He had to be patient for his chance in the starting XI.

Despite having a really good pre-season, Rayan Ait-Nouri was named on the bench for the first eight Premier League games. He played only six minutes against Tottenham Hotspur in the second game before his first proper chance.

After impressing against Nottingham Forest and Spurs in the Carabao Cup, his first league start would come against Leeds United on October 23.

Fernando Marcal picked up an injury, and so Ait-Nouri finally got his chance against the Whites – and he took it.

He also impressed in the victories over Everton and West Ham United.

Earlier this month, he put in arguably his finest performance in old gold against Liverpool, keeping Mo Salah quiet.

The Egyptian would then provide a game-winning assist seconds after Ait-Nouri went off injured.

What has been quite notable about Ait-Nouri this season, is that his defending has really come on.

The youngster looked a little vulnerable at times last term during his loan spell.

But he has looked really solid for Wolves throughout 2021/22, so that is hugely promising given what he offers going forwards.

He also appears to be very physically fit, pressing high and often, but still ensuring he gets back in position.

Only recently Bruno Lage talked up ‘the quality he has’.

We are starting to get reports about other clubs being interested in him, which is hardly surprising.

So far this term, Ait-Nouri has confirmed the fact he has the potential to be special. He is without doubt Wolves’ Young Player of the Season so far.
