journalist Tim Nash has been sharing his thoughts on the upcoming summer transfer window and the possible business that the Midlands club could look to do in it.

This comes after Nash made a guest appearance on the Always Wolves Podcast where he spoke about a variety of subjects concerning the Old Gold.

On the subject of the upcoming summer transfer window, Nash had this to say on the matter.

He said: “Clearly the squad needs work, it’s stalled this season. Obviously, there’s been so much said about the loss of Raul Jimenez and also the injuries to Pedro Neto and stuff as well, but I think it was clear that that investment needs to be made in the squad and what I don’t know is just how forthcoming that investment was going to be this summer.

“Fosun have always supported the managers. I’ve seen some quite frankly ridiculous comments from some doubting Fosun’s commitment but if you look at what they’ve done time and time again, I think it’s seven or eight times now they’ve smashed the club’s transfer record.

“They’ve invested more in Wolves and any other owner has; they’ve just smashed it out of the park so I don’t see how their financial commitment could be questioned at all.”

This season saw Wolves finish in 13th place in the Premier League table after finishing in 7th place in their two previous seasons.

TIF Thoughts on Tim Nash’s comments on the summer transfer window…

Given how Wolves spent a total of £74.52 million, during the previous summer and winter transfer windows on bringing in players such as Fabio Silva, Nelson Semedo, Ki-Jana Hoever, Marcal and Toti Gomes, this backs up Nash’s point that Fosun are not shy in splashing the clash to strengthen the squad when they need to.

Do Wolves need a squad rebuild this summer?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Looking ahead to this upcoming window, with Wolves having some players coming to the end of their current contracts at the end of the month, this should certainly be an area the club looks at this summer in terms of offering them new deals or not.

Also, with the club’s current on-loan players such as Vitinha, Jose and Rayan Ait-Nouri all coming to the end of their deals, Wolves will have to decide whether or not they want to use their option-to-buy for these players.
