Wolves transfer news: Wolves a possible destination for Hungary striker Roland Sallai

Wolves are reported to be a potential next destination for Hungary striker Roland Sallai.

The club have already brought in Matheus Cunha from Atletico Madrid. The Brazilian joined on loan with an obligation to buy next summer.

Hungarian journalist Bence Bocsak has claimed today via his official Twitter account that Sallai could be on the move in January.

The 25-year-old, who plays in the Bundesliga with SC Freiburg, has recently switched agencies and is apparently open to a move.

Bocsak claims there are a number of destinations for him, including Wolves, Lazio, West Ham United, Sevilla and Fiorentina.

Freiburg want £17.6 million for the star, who joined them in 2018 from APOEL FC.

Sallai has so far scored 18 goals and made 13 assists in 108 appearances for the German outfit. And he’s got nine goals in 38 caps for the Hungary national team.

According to a feature from the Bundesliga’s official website a couple of years ago, Sallai is a little bit like Jadon Sancho in terms of the way he plays.

They said of him: “Sallai is a modern wide player in the mould of Jadon Sancho, only too happy to give opposition players the swerve with his quick feet and acceleration.

“Like the former Borussia Dortmund and current England flier, Sallai knows how to make and take chances – and has shown himself to be a handy inverted winger and second striker for Freiburg and Hungary.”

Wolves surely don’t need Roland Sallai, unless someone is leaving in January

This is an interesting claim from Bocsak.

At the moment, Wolves are absolutely stacked when it comes to wide forwards.

There’s Daniel Podence, Goncalo Guedes, Hwang Hee-chan, Adama Traore, and new signing Matheus Cunha can also play out wide. And then there are injured stars Pedro Neto and Chiquinho to eventually come back into the picture.

Surely the club would not make a move for Sallai unless someone was going to leave next month.

There are two players that have been linked with exits from Molineux, and they’re Hwang (to Borussia Monchengladbach) and Traore (to Napoli, but next summer).
