Wolves are expected to bring in attacking options in the coming weeks as Bruno Lage aims to bolster his squad.
This has been suggested by insider Ryan Taylor, who has been speaking on his YouTube channel about what fans can expect at Molineux in the final weeks of the transfer window.
Lage’s men kicked off the new campaign against Leeds United and suffered a frustrating 2-1 defeat, which saw the Portuguese manager vent his frustrations at the full-time whistle.
So far, Wolves have only been able to bring in two new faces this summer in Goncalo Guedes and Nathan Collins, as well as making Hwang Hee-chan’s move permanent (via Transfermarkt).
Fabio Silva has also departed Molineux for the season and with their options already wearing thin, Taylor believes a striker is high up on their list for the coming weeks.
Responding to whether Wolves can expect more arrivals this summer, he said: “I think the answer to that is yes. I think striker is still very much something that’s high on the agenda.
“Fabio Silva’s, of course, joined Anderlecht on a season-long loan, but Raul Jimenez is out for around two months with an injury and Wolves just can’t really afford to be without two strikers.
“I know Hwang Hee-chan can play [there] but he’s not a long-term solution, really. But it needs to make sense for Wolves, not only in the short term, but in the long-term planning as well if they’re to sign a striker.”
TIF Thoughts on Taylor’s comments…
We think Wolves fans will be hoping this is the case having suffered the injury issue to Raul Jimenez in recent weeks, which will likely see him miss around six weeks of football.
Are you worried about Wolves this season?
Even with Jimenez playing last season, Wolves struggled in front of goal and ended the campaign as the league’s fourth-lowest scorers with just 38 goals in their 38 games.
Given there have not been major improvements this window, you have to look at their goalscoring record from last season with some concern.
So without Jimenez – who provided six of those goals – we absolutely believe Wolves need to invest further in their attacking options.
Signing Guedes could be seen as a step in the right direction as an attacking arrival, though given he is commonly found on the wing, there may yet be more activity expected at Molineux before the end of the window.
