Nuno Santo would be making a big error by keeping his Wolves squad thin next season

According to Birmingham Live, Nuno Santo has a desire to continue working with a reasonably small group of players next season, which hints Wolves could avoid doing much business in the transfer market.

What’s the word?

Wolves have done some fantastic recruitment over the last two years, largely thanks to super agent Jorge Mendes who has managed to pull off remarkable deals. One of those was the incredible coup of Ruben Neves, of course.

But with the transfer window fast approaching, he may have to dip his toes into the water again if they are to compete further next term.

Birmingham Live are reporting that Wolves boss Nuno is keen to add to the playing staff but wants to keep his squad at a reasonably small level.

In recent weeks, Adama Traore, Ivan Cavaleiro and Helder Costa have all been reported as players who could leave the club, per The Mirror. As such, replacements may be looked at over the summer.

Huge mistake if squad is kept small

Wolves’ lack of depth is no secret but if Nuno has desires of keeping his squad small then he’d be making a considerable error.

As much as it would keep players happy, competition for places is always healthy and there has been barely any of that at Molineux in 2018/19.

The Midlands club have been incredibly lucky with injuries but should one of their major players face a spell on the sidelines next season then they could be in huge bother if they don’t have capable backup players.

With Conor Coady playing every minute of the campaign and Joao Moutinho nearing the age of 33, it’s difficult to envisage them playing as much football as they have this season next campaign.

Wolves fans have been great value this season and now they’ve added another couple of belters to their arsenal of songs. Check them out in the video below…

They are two prime candidates who could be at considerable risk of burning out if the squad isn’t enlarged. If you add the fact Wolves may have Europa League football to deal with too, it could be a recipe for disaster.

Therefore, Nuno needs to rethink his summer transfer policy.
