The latest transfer reports coming from Brazil have linked Wolverhampton Wanderers with Shakhtar Donetsk winger Pedrinho as boss Bruno Lage looks to bolster his attacking options ahead of next season.

Wolves have enjoyed a good season under new boss Bruno Lage as they currently sit eighth with 49 points, just three off West Ham who occupies the Europa Conference League spot, however, they have only managed to win one of their last five, failing to score in four of the games.

Does Silva have a future at Molineux?





All of their attackers have failed to hit double-digit goals this season with Raul Jimenez and Daniel Podence leading the way with six, new signing Hwang Hee-Chan with five and Francisco Trancao with two. However, the worst of the bunch is Portuguese 19-year-old Fabio Silva has failed to score or assist in all 21 appearances in the Premier League this season.

Do you remember who Wolves signed Ivan Cavaleiro from?

These poor performances from Silva and the rest of Wolves’ attacking options had led to the Lage seemingly looking to make additions in the transfer market, which could mean the end of Silva’s time in the midlands.

As journalist Sami Mokbel told GiveMeSport back in January, stating, “A striker for them, I’m sure, would be at the forefront of Bruno Lage’s mind. Jimenez is back, but they certainly want more goals and more of a different kind of threat than he would offer, as good as a player he is”.

TIF Thoughts on Pedrinho replacing Silva…

As mentioned above, Silva has failed to impact the Wolves side this season and his poor performances could force Lage to rethink his options up-front and replace him with a better player like Pedrinho.

Compared to the Wolves man, the Brazilian has managed three goals in his eight league appearances for Donetsk while averaging 2.5 shots, 1.5 key passes, 2.5 dribbles, and 2.3 long balls per game with 89.5% pass accuracy (Whoscored). Whereas Silva is currently averaging just one shot on goal, 0.3 key passes, 0.3 dribbles, and 0.1 long balls with 69.9% pass accuracy.

It is still unsure how much Pedrinho would cost the midlands outfit but with their poor attacking options, we think Wolves should be snapping up the 24-year-old for whatever his side demand, they need the help!
