The Express & Star reporter Joe Edwards has claimed that Wolverhampton Wanderers are unlikely to spend a lot of money during the current transfer window.

During the summer transfer window, the Old Gold sunk £74.52m on incomings as they sealed the arrival of eight players – two on loan and six permanently (per Transfermarkt).

Despite these additions over the summer, recent injuries have left the Old Gold’s squad looking slightly thin on the ground in certain areas.

Following Raul Jimenez’s serious injury, Wolves look to be lacking up front in particular as they have just 18-year-old Fabio Silva and Patrick Cutrone following his recall from Fiorentina.

In the latest episode of the E&S Wolves Podcast, though, Edwards claimed that it is unlikely that Nuno Espirito Santo’s outfit will be spending a lot of money this month.

To kick off this quiz on Romain Saiss, what squad number does the defensive midfielder currently wear for the Old Gold?

He said: “I think, from what we’ve been told, it’s not going to be a big-money month.

“Especially with [Cutrone and Morgan Gibbs-White] coming back, it decreases the chance of that even more so now.

“If they’re looking at it in a few more weeks, maybe – touch wood it doesn’t happen – but if they have any more injuries in the coming weeks, or Gibbs-White and Cutrone really aren’t up to scratch, then they revisit it in the final weeks of the window.

“But it looks like being a fairly quiet month, really. If there is one that will come in, it’ll be one and done.

“With Cutrone being recalled now, even getting a new striker in looks less likely.”

TIF Thoughts on what Joe Edwards said about transfers…

As can be seen in what the journalist had to say, he believes that Wolves are unlikely to do much business this month and it will be “one and done” if they do.

Will you be disappointed if Wolves do not sign anyone this month?

With the Old Gold currently sat six positions lower than they finished during the previous two seasons in the Premier League (per Transfermarkt), it does seem as though they are in need of some investment.

Coupled with the recent injuries to players such as Willy Boly, Leander Dendoncker, Jimenez and Daniel Podence (per Wolves), the club looks light for reinforcements.

So, it does seem a bit of a risky move from the Molineux outfit if they are planning on having a quiet January transfer window.
