Eintracht Frankfurt v West Ham United: Semi Final Leg Two - UEFA Europa League


Wolves transfer news: Wanderers could return for Craig Dawson in January

Wolves could reportedly return for Craig Dawson in January after missing out on him in the summer.

According to The Athletic, the West Ham United defender remains on the club’s radar.

Wolves tried to sign Dawson on deadline day in the last window.

A £5 million deal was reportedly in place and Dawson was ready to make the move as he was keen to return to the Midlands.

But the deal was reliant on West Ham replacing him.

The Hammers wanted to sign Jan Bednarek from Southampton, but a deal didn’t materialise. He instead headed to Aston Villa, leaving Wolves’ plans in tatters.

Wolves proceeded with just four centre-back options in Nathan Collins, Maximilian Kilman, Toti Gomes and Yerson Mosquera.

That was a major risk considering all of them lack experience.

Wolves were then linked with a move for Jason Denayer who was a free agent. But he completed a move to Shabab Al-Ahli.

The Athletic have suggested that Wolves could now make a fresh swoop for Dawson.

But as in the summer, it is stated that that would be if David Moyes could do some business of his own.

So far this season, Dawson has made 10 appearances for the Irons. He has started each of West Ham’s last four Premier League games.

Wolves really need experienced centre-half, Everton game was a reminder

It will be interesting to see if Wolves do go back in for Dawson, now that Lopetegui is head coach and Matt Hobbs is the sporting director.

The club have also been in talks with Atletico Madrid about a possible deal for Felipe.

There is no doubt that Wolves need to bring in a centre-back with a lot of experience under his belt.

The four current options are all talented, but, with the exception of Kilman, lack experience.

The game against Everton was a reminder that Wolves need someone a bit older, although Toti did well when he came on to shore things up.
