Wolves legend Steve Bull has claimed to sign Sheffield United striker Oli McBurnie this summer could prove to be shrewd business for the Old Gold.
“I wouldn’t say he would be a waste of money because he’s a decent striker who will score goals, and he might turn out to be a vital player that comes off the bench and scores.
“I think chairman and owners have got money coming out of their ears and they just seem to always find money from somewhere, so if they want to pay it then they’ll find money from somewhere and get him on board.”
Would Oli McBurnie be a smart signing?
Signing McBurnie would likely depend on whether the club opts to sign on-loan frontman Willian Jose on a permanent basis from Real Sociedad – an option that is included in the deal.
At 6’1, McBurnie would offer a like for like understudy to the Mexican first-choice, something that is currently lacking in the Wolves squad, with only the inexperienced Fabio Silva waiting in the wings.
Whilst the summer priorities may be hanging on to the club’s prized assets, bolstering the options will remain imperative if Nuno Espirito Santo is going to get the club back amongst the upper echelons.
