The 2019/20 Summer Transfer Window will be over in less than a month and the only fresh face Wolves seem legitimately interested in buying is Mexico defender Edson Álvarez (One Football)
Sky Sports have said Wolves aren’t pursuing Andre Silva, and there’s doubts about Marseille midfielder Morgan Sanson.
If Nuno’s men only get a new defender, then the club will regret their ineptitude come the season’s finale.
Wolves cannot just buy Edson Álvarez this summer
Wolves’ transfer committee reportedly travelled to the Gold Cup final last Sunday to convince Mexico’s Álvarez to move to Molineux.
Despite reported interest from Ajax, Wolves are said to be in pole position to land the 21-year-old’s signature for £16M.
And it’s a transfer that wouldn’t be shocking thanks to Wolves’ acquisition of Raul Jimenez.
Furthermore, it would be a great coup for the pack as Álvarez is an ideal replacement for Ryan Bennett.
Not only that, but he could also fill in at right-back and make Wolves even more popular in Mexico.
While it would be a fantastic signing, Nuno can’t perform another miracle with just a new defender.
Salomon Rondon or another striker of his ilk is sorely needed to give Wolves a plan B against the relegation fodder that just parks the bus.
Meanwhile, a creative midfielder is needed to replace Helder Costa and possibly Ivan Cavalleiro (Football Fancast), as well as to add depth and competition to the squad.
If Wolves buy a defender without another striker and midfielder, then Nuno will be in trouble.
Diogo Jota and Raul Jimenez would need to escape injury throughout the entire season. In addition, Wolves would have the same problem as last seasons.
They would again struggle to break down defensive teams thanks to not being able to change the team’s playstyle.
And, with Manchester United and Tottenham having improved with terrific buys, it’s unlikely Wolves would steal as many points again from the top 6.
The pack wouldn’t need to worry about relegation, but performing well in both the Premier League and Europa League would be an impossible task.
