So far this season, Bruno Lage has seen his Wolves side rack up an incredibly mixed bag of results in the Premier League with three wins and four defeats under their belt.
In addition to this, Wolves have not been too excessive with scoring or conceding goals so far in their campaign with five scored and six conceded.
In terms of scoring goals, one player that Wolves have relied on to fire the Old Gold from the frontline is striker Raul Jimenez who scored a total of 30 goals combined from his first two Premier League campaigns with the Midlands club.
However, with the striker suffering a very serious head injury last November that brought an end to his season for the club, it’s understandable why the Mexican hasn’t been firing on all cylinders so far this season with just one goal to his name coming in their 1-0 win over Southampton.
With this in mind, one player that Lage could potentially turn to in an attempt to try and inject some life into Wolves’ attacking line is 17-year-old attacker Owen Farmer.
Given how the 17-year-old has managed to score three goals in just two league games for Wolves’ U18 side, it shows he has a knack for finding the net.
Two of them came in their 2-1 win over Manchester City’s U18 side that led to youth manager Steve Davis describing Farmer’s strikes as “poachers’ goals.”
Additionally, the fact that Farmer was recently named in The Guardian’s Next Generation 2021 list of the 20 best young talents across the Premier League clubs, shows how impressive he has been and why he could be a good option for Wolves to use in the future.
Even though Lage has Fabio Silva at his disposal as a potential extra option in the striker position, the fact that he only managed to score four goals in 32 league appearances last season while Jimenez was out of action suggests to us that he may not be suited to English football yet.
In which case, we feel it could be worth giving Farmer a shot to prove what he can do in the senior side at some point in the season.
