A report from Spain today has suggested that Wolves could consider bringing back Willian Jose.

Jose, who arrived at Molineux on loan from La Liga side Real Sociedad in January had flattered to deceive, scoring just one goal in his short spell at the club.

Following the departure of head coach, Nuno Espirito Santo, it was expected that Jose was not going to return to Molineux.

However, according to Mundo Deportivo, La Real have not ‘ruled out’ a return to Wolves for the striker.

The 29 year-old striker was on the periphery at Sociedad following the emergence of young Swedish striker, Alexander Isak, but he still scored 62 goals in 170 games, having arrived in 2016.

 

This report in the Spanish media will come as a surprise, and maybe even as a disappointment to Wolves fans, who were not particularly wowed by the Brazilian during his short spell at the club.

It has also been reported that the Spanish side are confident of receiving ‘numerous offers‘ for Jose, despite his underwhelming season. Jose had reached double figures for goals during his first four seasons with Sociedad.

With incoming boss Bruno Lag, expected to play a 4-4-2, it could be that he deems Jose a more natural fit than he was in Nuno’s team last season.

The fee has not been disclosed, although it may be considered to be a cheaper alternative for Wolves this summer.
