Wolves: ‘Nothing is imminent’ with Pablo Sarabia

Journalist Alex Crook has revealed that ‘nothing is imminent’ with regards to a Wolves deal to sign PSG midfielder Pablo Sarabia.

Wolves look set to be busy in this window, having already signed Matheus Cunha on loan from Atletico Madrid, while Mario Lemina is reportedly having a medical today ahead of a move from OGC Nice.

They do not look like they will stop there though, with other names being reported as potential signings over the next few weeks.

One of the names that has been mentioned is Sarabia, with The Athletic reporting earlier this week that the Midlands club were in talks over potentially bringing him to Molineux.

However, Crook took to Twitter on Thursday afternoon to give an update on the situation, revealing that ‘nothing is imminent’ with regards to a potential deal:

“Pablo Sarabia is a Wolves target but understand nothing is imminent. Mario Lemina closest to being a done deal.”

TIF thoughts on Sarabia to Wolves…

Sarabia has no doubt had a great career, playing for big names like Real Madrid, Sevilla and PSG, as well as recording 26 caps for Spain (Transfermarkt).

However, he is 30 years of age now, and is currently earning a hefty £92,000-per-week in Paris, with only Raul Jimenez and Joao Moutinho earning more in the Old Gold squad.

His underlying numbers are shocking compared to his positional peers in Europe’s top five leagues over the past year, ranking in the bottom 1% for non-penalty goals, assists and dribbles completed per game (FBRef), and with Lemina coming through the doors, one would have to question whether Sarabia is needed too.

Nonetheless, the Wanderers would be best to walk away from this deal, and perhaps pursue other targets in that area.
