Wolves journalist Tim Spiers has been sharing his thoughts on Wolves U23s striker Theo Corbeanu and his chances of playing in Nuno Espirito Santo&8217;s side in the near future 

This comes after Spiers recently co-hosted the latest episode of The Athletic’s Wolves-themed podcast The Molineux View, where he spoke about a variety of topics concerning the Old Gold.

Nice easy one to start off with, who currently sits top of the table?

On the subject of Corbeanu and whether or not he could play a part in the Wolves senior team anytime soon, Spiers had this to say on the matter.

He said: “I don’t think he’s anywhere near it at this moment in time, because [Daniel] is out injured and there’s no natural wide forwards to back up [Pedro] Neto and [Adama] Traore in that first-team squad, but yet still Corbeanu can’t get on the bench, which suggests to me that that he’s not anywhere near it at the moment, which is a shame because he’s done very well for the U23s.”

Corbeanu joined the Wolves U18 squad back in 2018 from the TFC Academy in Canada for an undisclosed fee.

Since arriving at the Midlands club, the 18-year-old striker has made 31 appearances for the U18s, scoring seven goals and providing two assists, made 20 appearances for the U23s, scoring four goals and providing two assists but has yet to make his senior Wolves debut (per Transfermarkt).

TIF Thoughts on Tim Spiers’ comments on Corbeanu…

Taking into account what Spiers had to say in the podcast and how Wolves only have nine games left to play in this current campaign, as well as only having Fabio Silva and Willian Jose in their squad that play in the centre-forward position, it seems unlikely, in our view, that Espirito Santo would hand Corbeanu his senior debut for the club before the end of the season.

Would you like to see Theo Corbeanu get his senior debut for Wolves this season?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Moving forward, if Corbeanu doesn’t get his senior debut this season, he will have to continue working hard in the U23s to make sure he puts himself in the best position to earn a place in the senior team next season.
