Wolves transfer news: Wolves don't need to sell to offset the cost of signings

Wolves have burst into life in the transfer window over the past few weeks.

The club have swooped to sign Nathan Collins, Goncalo Guedes and most recently, Matheus Nunes from Sporting CP.

The outlay on that trio is around £90 million, with £14 million also being spent on Hwang Hee-chan, who turned his loan move from RB Leipzig permanent.

Wolves supporters had hoped for a summer of big spending.

Without doubt, the squad needed some additions after a disappointing finish to the 2021/22 season.

But quite a few people expected there to be some sales at this point.

There have been departures, but these have been loan exits and players leaving at the end of their contracts.

Wanderers are yet to make a big sale this summer, and some are wondering if that will happen between now and the end of the window.

The Athletic provide some information on the situation this morning, and they actually claim Wolves don’t need to sell players to offset the costs of their transfers so far.

The likes of Morgan Gibbs-White and Leander Dendoncker are mentioned as possible outgoings due to the arrivals of Guedes and Nunes.

But Wolves are in a position where they don’t have to sell.

Supposedly, the self-sufficient model is still in place at Molineux.

But the deal to sign Nunes in particular was sanctioned because it was simply too good not to do.

Encouraging claim regarding Wolves’ position on player sales, Lage could have some squad on his hands

It could be that someone does still leave Wolves for big money this summer.

You’ve got to think that if Wolves felt the Nunes deal was too good not to do, then they will adopt the same stance if a big offer comes in for a player.

But it is certainly encouraging that Wolves are in a position whereby sales are not needed to offset spending.

It puts Bruno Lage in a fantastic position.

The manager could now have the tools he needs to perhaps make a proper push for European football come next year.
