Wolves journalist Liam Keen has hinted that the club could pursue some of their failed summer transfer targets in the January window.
Two men that Wolves were reportedly showing an interest in during the latter stages of the window included Dutch defender Sven Botman and Portuguese playmaker Renato Sanches, however, for one reason or another, the club weren’t able to get deals over the line for either of them.
But it would appear as though that may not be the end of the matter for Wolves when it comes to their pursuit of the two players. Speaking about Botman and Sanches on the latest edition of the E&S Wolves podcast, Keen explained that the club would ‘probably’ be trying to make a move for them again when the January window comes around:
“I think Botman and Sanches, you could probably see them going back in for. Sanches will probably be fit again by then as well. So there will be movement, hopefully, and provided there’s no injuries, Wolves can get to January fairly safely and potentially bring some more players in then as well.”
TIF Thoughts on Liam Keen’s comments about Sven Botman, Renato Sanches and Wolves…
Have Wolves had a good transfer window?
Given the way Wolves have started the season, you could certainly make the argument that they need as much help as they can get, but they might just have to wait a while to try and make the deals happen once again.
You just hope that they manage to put themselves in a better position than they are in now so that they will be an attractive prospect to the likes of Botman, Sanches and others, otherwise they might not be able to bring them to the club regardless of how much they are willing to compensate them financially.
So perhaps instead of leaving it late like they did the first time around, they should start looking to get the deals done now whilst they still can and have it all wrapped up by the opening of the window. That way, they can start to make an impact as soon as possible rather than perhaps waiting until middle or late January for them to arrive.
