Willian Jose wows with Sociedad brace as Wolves links emerge

Reported Wolves target Willian Jose was on target twice for Real Sociedad last night, after transfer links to the Black Country emerged.

The Brazilian is widely reported to have agreed a deal to sign with Wolves on loan at Molineux for the remainder of the season, with Sky Sports saying the player could arrive in England next week.

The club have decided to act amid their dismal run of results, despite the manager hinting he was happy with his current options.

He had brought back Patrick Cutrone from his loan, but it seems the feeling is that more firepower is needed in the absence of Raul Jimenez.

Last night, just hours after the story of Jose to Wolves broke, the player took to the field for Sociedad against Cordoba in the Copa del Rey.

It was an opportunity for Wolves fans to feast their eyes on the South American, many for the first time, amid all the speculation.

Anyone watching will not have been disappointed, with the 29-year–old grabbing both goals in a 2-0 win.

His first was a nice finish on the stretch at the back post, while his second was an absolute rocket from the edge of the box which found the bottom corner.

It was the kind of finish that showed a real ruthlessness – something Wolves have been severely lacking in recent weeks.

Jose’s performance earned him a 9.1 rating from SofaScore, whose statistics showed he had 88% pass completion (28/32) and won four out of eight duels. He also made six key passes, suggesting an eye for creativity.

If Jose is indeed to compete a move to Wolves as multiple outlets are now suggesting, then fans ought to be fairly excited about his arrival, especially off the back of his great showing last night.
