Wolverhampton Wanderers journalist Liam Keen has been sharing some details on the potential business that could take place at the Midlands club during the upcoming summer transfer window.
On the subject of the summer transfer window and what potential business could happen at Wolves during it, Keen had this to say on the matter and whether or not the club could be forced into selling some of their current players to fund moves for new ones. (27.08)
He said: “It’s understood from our perspective that the club won’t be forced into selling to raise the funds, but if the right offer came in, they would listen to it and if it’s right for the club, as it was with Diogo Jota last year, then they can go.
“I don’t think it would be a surprise to see any of them go this summer and although they are going to have to be creative in the market, which is the word that Scott Sellars used, loans, swaps, loans with obligations, they’re going to have to look at that market more.”
Wolves’ 2020/21 Premier League campaign saw them finish in 13th place with 45 points after winning just 12 out of their 38 played league games, drawing nine and losing 17 in the process (per BBC Sport).
TIF Thoughts on Liam Keen’s comments on the summer transfer window…
Given how Wolves currently have a number of players that are coming to the end of their current contracts such as John Ruddy, Roman Saiss, Vitinha, Willian Jose and Rayan Ait-Nouri, and the fact that they currently have a number of players out with injuries they could look to sign replacements for, this suggests to us that there will be some incoming and outgoing transfers taking place this summer at Molineux.
How many players do you think Wolves need to sign this summer?
In our view, Wolves will need to sign some new players to either replace the potential outgoings or even just to add some extra quality to their squad, which is currently one of the smallest in the Premier League, if they want to make a push back into the top half of the league table next season.
