Image for Wolves: Fans will love new footage of strikers goal while on loan

Wolves youngster Leonardo Campana has continued to impress while on loan as new footage of his latest goal on Twitter with surely excite supporters for his return in the summer. 

The midlands team have enjoyed a great season under new boss Bruno large as they set their sights on the top six and possible European football during the run-in to this year’s Premier League season.

Wolves currently sit eighth on 49 points, only five-point behind Manchester United who occupies the last European spot. While they have enjoyed life under the new boss they have struggled to produce consistent goals, having only scored three or more goals three times this season, against Watford, Aston Villa, and Southampton. Mexican striker Raul Jimenez tops their scoring list this season, both with six goals in 31 games, a big step down from the heights of his 19/20 campaign which saw him rack up 27 goals and 10 assists in all competitions.

Do you remember who Wolves signed Ivan Cavaleiro from?

This has spurred Lage to look for a replacement or at the very least competition at the position. with rumours coming in thick and fast that Wolves are looking for a striker in the summer. So far they have been linked to Valencia strike Maxi Gomez, Brentford forward Ivan Toney, and Chelsea man Michy Batshuayi to name a few.

However, it has appeared they might not need to look much longer as loanee Campana has continued to produce in the MLS for Inter Miami and his latest goal captured on Twitter (originally posted by MLS) shows the 21-year-olds clinical finishing in full display as he latches onto the end of a cross and tucks the ball into the far corner at a tight angle.

Should Wolves use Campana next season?





TIF Thoughts on Campana…

Wolves are in desperate need of a consistent striker to give competition to Jimenez and Campana could be the man to do that. He has enjoyed a successful season on loan at Inter Miami as they look to make the playoffs in just their third season as a professional club.

So far this season Campana has bettered the scoring record of every Wolves player with eight goals in all competitions for the American side. He also has racked up 2.3 shots, 0.6 key passes, 0.5 dribbles 0.6 long balls per game while averaging 78.3% pass accuracy. (Whoscored).

Wolves should definitely continue their search for a starting strike this summer as next season might be one too soon for Campana, especially in a league as fast and competitive as the Premier League. However, Wolves fans can get excited that they have a very promising player on their hands that can be moulded and nurtured into a possible starting calibre player for them for years to come.

It might be worth sending Campana out on loan to a club in a league closer to the style of the Premier League next season in order to get a better football education and experience before turning to him in future seasons.
