There have been a number of outgoings so far. John Ruddy, Romain Saiss and Fernando Marcal have all departed permanently.

And Ryan Giles and Ki-Jana Hoever have both left the club on loan.

Many fans are frustrated that the club have not yet brought in a single player.

Given the way the 2021/22 season ended, lots of people were hopeful that the club might go into the summer window on the offensive.

But it’s been all quiet so far, which has been cause for real frustration among the fanbase.

Nunes is a player lots want to see come in.

Wolves have been linked with the eight-cap international for a number of weeks now.

It seems any move for him this summer could be dependent on Ruben Neves being sold.

According to Correio da Manha, Lage has attempted to apply the pressure by asking officials get the deal done quickly.

It’s been claimed Everton and Newcastle United also have interest in the player, and Lage does not want to miss out on the 23-year-old.

Whether he’ll get his wish remains to be seen.

But it is understandable Lage wants to hurry things along.

Pre-season starts today, with players that have been on international duty to come back a little later.

Wolves then head to Alicante and then the Algarve to play some friendly matches.

With the season starting earlier due to the World Cup, it is paramount for Wolves to get some business done soon so that there is time for the new faces to settle.
