There is just one week remaining in the transfer window, and it’s potentially going to be a very frantic period for recruitment officials at Wolves.
The club have made four signings so far, but it’s been over a month since a new face came in.
Fans have been a little worried about the recent stagnation.
Bruno Lage has not hidden his desire for new additions, and here are some deals that could come to fruition in the coming days:
Goncalo Guedes in
Valencia are not in a great financial situation right now.
Guedes is another Jorge Mendes client so naturally, there is a very reasonable chance of him coming to Molineux.
It remains to be seen if he would come in as a replacement for Adama Traore.
Issa Diop in
Issa Diop was linked with Wolves a few weeks ago, and it would be no surprise to see Wolves make a late swoop for the Frenchman.
It seems Kurt Zouma could be bound for West Ham United, with The Athletic reporting a verbal agreement is in place between the Hammers and Chelsea.
Zouma making that move would seriously impact Diop and his chances of getting minutes, which might encourage Wolves to make some enquiries.
Kang-in Lee in
Guedes’ Valencia teammate Kang-in Lee may also be a possibility.
The Spanish side face losing him for nothing next year, and he currently occupies a non-EU player slot.
Wolves have been linked with the South Korean technician, who would potentially be a good long-term replacement for Joao Moutinho.
Kieffer Moore in
Wolves have been linked with Kieffer Moore of Cardiff City.
He scored 20 goals in the Championship last term, and would potentially give Wolves a different option up top.
Fans had a mixed reaction to the link, but it’s a deal that could well come to fruition.
At the moment, Lage only has two out-and-out strikers to choose from in Raul Jimenez and Fabio Silva. Another one in before next Tuesday should not be ruled out.
Adama Traore out
Traore leaving Wolves in the coming days feels unlikely, but not out of the question.
Talk has been picking up about interest from Tottenham Hotspur, although it remains to be seen if they can actually make a big enough offer. Fans did not take kindly to the reported loan offer made.
Wolves don’t want to sell but may cash in if a significant bid comes in.
Even if such a bid does come in, cashing in would be a massive risk from Wolves, with Traore having been outstanding so far in 2021/22.
