Wolves boss Nuno Santo could make a huge statement if they land Sami Khedira

This article is part of Football FanCast’s Transfer Focus series, which provides opinion and analysis on recent transfer news…

According to Sky Italia, via Football Italia, Wolves are trying to land German veteran Sami Khedira this summer.

What’s the word?

Wolves will play their first competitive football on Thursday night when they welcome Crusaders to Molineux with a slim squad.

Just 12 senior outfield players were taken to China for the Premier League Asia Trophy so it’s clear more depth needs to be added to the side.

In recent weeks, moves for Patrick Cutrone and Ruben Dias have been touted but they’re also in talks for another European star.

Per Sky Italia, via Football Italia, Wolves have asked Juventus about signing midfielder Khedira.

The 77-cap German has been the subject of discussion between Juventus’ director of sport Fabio Paratici and Wolves after he was in England on Wednesday.

Huge statement

Wolves have made some major plays in the transfer market since arriving in the Premier League, signing Raul Jimenez for as much as £30m.

He didn’t necessarily arrive with European pedigree, however, as they’ve made permanent moves for the likes of Jonny and Leander Dendoncker.

If the club landed both Dias and Cutrone it would be a big sign of intent but by bringing Khedira to Molineux too, it could well be one of Nuno’s largest statements yet.

The fact is that the 32-year-old is a serial winner and proven among some of the biggest clubs in Europe, having enjoyed a spell with Real Madrid as well as Juventus.

If you don’t know the words to the Joao Moutinho chant in the video below, are you even a real Wolves fan?…

Joao Moutinho, who is also 32, was snapped up last season and questions may have been asked about his age.

Indeed the same fears could arise surrounding links with Khedira but this is a player who has proven his quality time and time again on the biggest stage.

He’s a World Cup and Champions League winner, having appeared in the latter competition 72 times throughout his career.

The midfielder has amassed serious numbers in some of the top five divisions in the world, playing on over 100 occasions in La Liga whilst racking up 98 Bundesliga and 87 Serie A appearances.

Possessing the ability to play as a central midfielder and in more of a holding role, this would be a smart signing for Wolves and would add a wealth of experience that could prove key in Europe next term.
