Talking Wolves’ Dave Azzopardi has been sharing his thoughts on the possibility of Old Gold defender Jonny potentially leaving the club this summer.
This comes after Azzopardi made an appearance on a recent video from the Talking Wolves YouTube channel where he spoke about the latest news stories concerning the Midlands club.
After it was recently reported by Italian media outlet Calcio Mercato that Jonny is a potential target for Serie A club AS Roma this summer, Azzopardi had this to say on the matter.
He said: “I don’t really think there’s much in this one to be honest, like I said, because Jonny’s had two fairly serious injuries.
“I don’t think any club, even a club with the stature of Roma, would even be considering this as a move, to be honest.
“Of course, we’ll have to wait and see when Jonny is back to full fitness, hopefully that is sooner rather than later.”
Overall, the 27-year-old left-back, who is currently valued at £13.5 million, has made 95 appearances for the Old Gold across all competitions, in which he has managed to score three goals and provide five assists along the way (per Transfermarkt).
TIF Thoughts on Dave Azzopardi’s comments on Roma’s reported interest in Jonny…
As Azzopardi mentioned, Jonny is currently out injured with a knee injury that has kept him out of action since April, not long after recovering from another knee injury that kept him sidelined from August last year to February, which had resulted in him missing a total of 26 matches for Wolves.
Would you be disappointed if Wolves sold Jonny this summer?
Taking this into account, it does seem unlikely that the Spaniard would be on his way out of the club anytime soon while he is recovering.
However, with Wolves recently securing Rayan Ait-Nouri on a five-year permanent deal, perhaps Jonny’s long-term future will be under some speculation once he recovers and the upcoming season progresses if he doesn’t get played regularly.
Having been a regular up until his injury problems at Wolves, it would arguably be a blow for the club to lose him in this manner, though it remains to be seen whether these rumours come to fruition in the coming weeks.
