The president of Celta Vigo has showered praise on Wolverhampton Wanderers striker Rafa Mir, and believes he’d be a good fit for his side.

The 23-year-old has just finished a fine campaign with SD Huesca.

Ultimately he was unable to help them avoid relegation from La liga.

But he personally stood out, and finished 2020/21 with 16 goals across all competitions.

It’s felt Wolves see Mir as a means of generating funds to boost their transfer kitty this summer.

Interest is high in the Spaniard, with several teams from La Liga impressed having seen him up close.

It seems Celta Vigo are one such team, and their president did not hold back with the compliments.

 

Carlos Mourino told AS: “He [Mir] would fit in for Celta and many teams because he is a magnificent player. From the time a name is given until something can be done, it is a very difficult route.

“Besides, he belongs to an English team and it is not easy to negotiate with the English club. And on the other hand, he has done very well and surely has many teams behind him.”

Mir up for sale?

There has been some talk about Ruben Neves and Rui Patricio perhaps departing this summer.

But someone Wolves fans should expect to leave is Mir.

At this moment in time he has never been worth more and could fetch a fairly healthy fee.

Wolves do need to boost that transfer kitty and although some would like to see Mir get another chance at Molineux, he is probably going to be sold given the level of interest in him.
