Wolves have reportedly made an offer to sign Paris Saint-Germain star Pablo Sarabia.
AS are reporting this morning that Wanderers have put forth a proposal for the Spanish star.
Their report states that Sarabia ‘can offer Nasser Al Khelaïfi and Luis Campos an interesting and unexpected exit in the winter market’. He is a player who isn’t depended on too much by manager Christophe Galtier.
Sarabia has been with PSG since 2019 when he signed from Julen Lopetegui’s old club Sevilla. The deal was worth around £18 million (Goal).
Last season he was on loan with Sporting CP, and had a really productive spell in Portugal. He made 45 appearances, and scored an impressive 21 goals. He also laid on 10 assists.
Sarabia returned to PSG ahead of the 2022/23 season, and opportunities haven’t been all that plentiful.
So far this term he has made 19 appearances in total. But he’s only spent 626 minutes on the pitch. A lot of the time, he has started on the bench and come on later in games.
He’s a wide forward, and so playing regularly ahead of the likes of Lionel Messi, Neymar and Kylian Mbappe is simply not an option.
AS don’t provide any details about this supposed offer from Wolves.
They just say that there is a proposal on the table, and that Julen Lopetegui is backing the move.
Lopetegui reportedly wanted to re-sign Sarabia for Sevilla in 2021.
Wolves don’t really need Pablo Sarabia, unless someone is leaving
Sarabia is a good player who ought to be playing more. But that’s difficult at a club like PSG given the attacking talent there.
It would be no surprise if he left the club this month.
But arguably Wolves don’t really need Sarabia. Lopetegui has plenty of wingers right now, and still has Pedro Neto to bring back into the fold, and also Chiquinho later down the line.
Daniel Podence, Hwang Hee-chan, Adama Traore, Goncalo Guedes can all play out wide. And Rayan Ait-Nouri has also become an option to play as a winger recently.
Surely, the only way Wolves do a deal for Sarabia is if one of those players leaves.
