Wolves transfer news: Wanderers target Seferovic set to join Galatasaray on loan

Wolves appear to have missed out of Haris Seferovic, with the striker all set to join Galatasaray on loan.

The 30-year-old is primed to seal a loan move to the Turkish giants, as per journalist Pedro Sepulveda.

Gala will pay £850,000 for the loan, and they will then be obliged to pay £1.7 million next year to sign him permanently.

Seferovic has spent the last five years of his career at Benfica.

He has scored 74 goals and made 24 assists in 187 games for the club.

A few years ago, he spent time working under Bruno Lage.

The current Wolves head coach took over caretaker during the 2018/19 season from Rui Vitoria.

He would go on to deliver the league title for Benfica, with Seferovic proving a reliable performer under him.

He bagged 27 goals in 65 games under him, and it was clearly a good working relationship.

Recently, Seferovic was pictured with Lage in a hotel lobby.

The pair were snapped before Switzerland’s Nations League game with Portugal.

Seferovic was then actually linked with a move to Molineux.

But it appears Wolves will now not be reuniting Seferovic and Lage.

Fans will hope for movement on the new striker situation very soon, with the club having today confirmed the departure of Fabio Silva on loan to Anderlecht.

So Seferovic will not be wearing Wolves colours this season.

Given the finances apparently involved in the Galatasaray deal, it is a bit of a shame that Wolves haven’t tried to make a move.

At just £850,000 initially, it’s a relatively risk-free move, for a man who has scored plenty of goals during his time in Portugal. And for his country.

Given Lage worked with him previously, it is a bit of a surprise that Wanderers did not make an approach.
