Wolves must avoid selling Conor Coady this summer

Wolves defender and captain Conor Coady is reportedly subject to interest from Premier League rivals Everton regarding a move this summer.

What’s the latest?

According to TEAMtalk, the Toffees are interested in luring the Liverpudlian centre-back away from Molineux in the upcoming transfer window. Of course, that is assuming that they survive their relegation battle.

However, it seems as though the likelihood of Wolves allowing one of their most influential players to leave this summer, let alone to a Premier League rival, is highly unlikely. Moreover, as a boyhood Liverpool fan and former Reds youth player, the idea of Coady playing for their Merseyside rivals is hard to imagine.

Which club did Wolves loan Willian Jose from in the 2021 January transfer window?

As unlikely as the transfer link may seem, it should alert the West Midlands outfit to the fact that clubs will be interested in signing the 29-year-old, so they must do whatever they can to keep their influential figure at Molineux.

Wolves must keep Coady

Not only has Coady been a key contributor to Wolves’ status as the Premier League’s fourth-best defence, the 29-year-old is an influential figure at the Black Country club, involving himself in plenty of charitable activities.

The centre-back has played in all 32 Premier League matches for the Old Gold this term and has arguably had his best campaign in a Wolves shirt to date, with three goals to add to his defensive heroics.

Having made the move to Molineux in 2015 from Huddersfield Town, the Englishman has been a vital figure as Wolves have gone from mid-table in the Championship to competing in Europe, making 311 appearances in Old Gold.

Alongside 11 league clean sheets this term, the defender has averaged 3.5 clearances, 0.8 tackles and 0.8 interceptions per game, whilst also maintaining an 89% passing accuracy.

Should Wolves keep hold of Coady?

No centre-back at Wolves has played more matches than Coady this term, with Max Kilman the second-most frequent player with 30 appearances. He has also enjoyed an excellent campaign, averaging 1.5 interceptions, 1.7 tackles and 3.5 clearances per match.

Coady’s most recent success whilst playing for Wolves has been his breakthrough in the national team. The 29-year-old made his senior England debut in September 2020 and has since earned nine caps, being included in the squad for Euro 2020.

The defender is a kingpin both on and off the pitch for the West Midlands club, and selling him to a current Premier League rival this summer would surely have dire consequences.
