Wolves are thought to be monitoring the situation of Liverpool winger Harry Wilson, who has enjoyed an impressive season on loan in the Championship scoring 16 goals with Derby County, with Jurgen Klopp considering selling him for 25million, according to the Football Insider.
Nuno Espirito Santo’s side were also linked with a move to sign Chelsea forward Tammy Abraham, who has scored 26 goals for Aston Villa during a loan spell this season, during the January transfer window according to BBC Sport.
Whelan has now backed to Wolves to make summer moves for the pair and believes that both players would be good additions to Nuno’s side next term.
“Nuno is looking to strengthen massively. It doesn’t surprise me they’re looking at Harry Wilson and I could see him fitting in there if Klopp wants to sell,” Whelan told the Football Insider.
“He has had a good season at Derby and been integral to their play-off challenge. He scores and creates goals, and would fit well into Wolves’ fluent playing style.
“Tammy Abraham may be going to Wolves as well, and he is an outstanding young striker.”
Whelan’s suggestion that Wolves could sign both Wilson and Abraham this summer will be a very interesting one for Wolves supporters. Both players are bright and talented young English players which would make the pair, as Whelan acknowledges, very good additions to Wolves, as they look to build a squad capable of playing both Premier League and Europa League football next season. Wilson and Abraham have both enjoyed very productive loan spells with Derby and Aston Villa this season, and their respective loan clubs will face each other in the Championship play-off final, after the pair made excellent contributions to their sides push for promotion to the Premier League this season. However, despite both being in good form this season it is probably unlikely that either will be guaranteed first team starters for their parent clubs next season, and both will be wanting to continue their momentum from the current campaign and prove their abilities in the top flight next season. Therefore, a move away to a club like Wolves, who are showing the ambition to do more than just survive in the Premier League, could be an ideal option for both to continue their respective developments.
