Wolves are reportedly eyeing a move for Feyenoord’s on-loan midfielder Guus Til.
According to TEAMtalk, the Dutchman is attracting interest from several sides at the moment.
Til, 23, is supposedly on Everton’s radar.
Rafa Benitez likes the look of the ace, who has scored nine goals already this season. He also scored a further six in Europa League qualifying, meaning he has 15 in 27 in total so far. That is more than double the tally of Hwang Hee-chan and Raul Jimenez combined this season.
But Wolves are also mentioned in the report as having expressed an interest.
Til’s parent club Spartak Moscow do have a recall option on the player. It is also stated though that any potential buyer could leave the player on loan at Feyenoord.
Wolves, as has been well documented, are lacking midfield options at the moment.
Bruno Lage can only call on Ruben Neves, Joao Moutinho and Leander Dendoncker at the moment. Bruno Jordao could soon be back in the first-team, but he lacks experience.
Wolves have previously been linked with a move for Renato Sanches.
He seems to be the player a lot of fans would most like the club to sign next month. But the club could face big competition for his signature.
It is important that Wolves go into the winter window having identified a few potential names.
Fosun surely cannot be inactive – Bruno Lage has definitely proven he is worth backing.
Wolves need a goalscoring midfielder – and Guus Til has shown he’s that
One of the most frequent criticisms about Wolves’ squad is that it lacks a midfielder who can chip in with goals.
The team needs someone capable of arriving late into the box. Someone who can operate closer to the main striker.
Til, who was born in Zambia and moved to the Netherlands aged three, would often play as a second striker at AZ Alkmaar supporting Wout Weghorst.
Goal reported a few years ago that he ‘looks for space to appear in the box and invades at the right time’ and also ‘pops up at vital moments to put the finishing touches to neat moves’.
It sounds like a move for Til could be slightly complicated given he’s currently on loan.
But maybe if Sanches proves too difficult to sign, Wolves should give it some thought.
