Wolverhampton Wanderers are in big need of some new signings this summer.
The 2020/21 season has been a real struggle for a variety of reasons.
The sales of Matt Doherty and Diogo Jota have proven unhelpful, as did the horrible injury suffered by Raul Jimenez.
Several other players have been crocked, and Nuno Espirito Santo has altered between formations.
It has all resulted in the players that have been called upon falling short of expectation.
Transfer rumours have already been circulating, and Wolves fans have actually been discussing the possibility of signing Xherdan Shaqiri.
The Liverpool winger barely features at Anfield, and has been afforded just 21 appearances across all competitions this season.
Most of those have come as a substitute.
Unfortunately for the Switzerland international, minutes have been hard to come by pretty much ever since he joined the club in 2018.
This term, Jota’s arrival has really stung for the 29-year-old, with the Portuguese forward really hitting the ground running on Merseyside.
According to a report from the Daily Mail earlier this week, the Reds expect to sell Shaqiri this summer.
They signed him from Stoke City for around £13 million (BBC Sport), and they will almost certainly have to take a hit on him if they are indeed going to offload him.
Really, Wolves could do with some like Shaqiri, who is said to earn around £80,000-a-week at Anfield (Spotrac).
He is surely itching to play regularly somewhere, and would not be particularly expensive.
He’s technical, versatile, left-footed which is always nice, and is someone capable of being productive in the final third.
Also, with Pedro Neto out injured for the foreseeable, Wolves need to bring in cover.
Some Wolves fans have been discussing the player on social media.
It seems many would take the former Bayern Munich and Inter Milan player at Molineux, and recognise him as an experienced player who still has a lot to offer:
Take him everyday. He plays on the front foot 👍👍👍👍

Definitely. Not the marquee signing that we need in other positions but liverpool need money so could probably get him for lower than his market value. Good squad player and can play in different positions.

Yes but play him as a #10/CAM

I thought he was a lot older than 29, so definitely yes. As long as the motivation is still there.

Any good player that can play in between the lines with a killer pass would be a bonus 👍🏼
