Would Robert Skov be a good signing for Wolves?

Wolves are lining up Danish winger Robert Skov this summer according to Eldesmarque.

The Spanish publication claim that Celta Vigo have emerged as one of his possible destinations but both Wolves and Tottenham have contacted his club FC Copenhagen over a possible transfer.

Skov has quickly become one of the most impressive young wingers in Europe and found himself involved in a massive 42 goals across all competitions in 2018/19.

He was in mesmeric form, scoring 24 times in the league as he helped his side to a Danish Superleague title, finishing 11 points ahead of their nearest competitors.

However, he could now be on the move as Wolves look to gear up for an assault on the Europa League next term.

Adding depth to a team that only used 21 players in the Premier League last season will be vitally important, especially as the Midlands outfit could be staring at an extra 20 games if they make it all the way to the final in Europe.

There is, of course, a whole year to go before that may become a reality but there is certainly reason to suggest Skov could help their cause.

But what do other writers at Football FanCast make of a possible move? Have a read of their in-depth assessments below.

James Beavis

“Skov would be an outstanding signing for Wolves, and exactly the type of player they should be targeting this summer. Jorge Mendes may have proved in the past that he can help bring individuals like Ruben Neves and Rui Patricio to Molineux, but the sensible and shrewd tactic of looking for some of the best young players from smaller leagues in Europe should also be a path the west Midlands outfit look to follow.

“The 23-year-old certainly fits under that category seeing as he scored 32 goals in 48 appearances for FC Copenhagen last season, and he would arrive with the added bonus of having experienced Europa League football with the Danish giants. Taking all of that into account, he would be Wolves’ standout signing of the summer.”

“Skov would be a gamble, but sometimes gambles pay off. He’s just 23 and has some remarkably impressive numbers behind him. He scored 32 goals in 48 games for FC Copenhagen but, really, what does that mean? He’s not been playing in anything approaching a top league across the last season but if the price is right, he’d be worth a punt.

“Very few wingers across Europe have such an impressive goal tally and he could well slot right in at Molineux. But, really, nobody has a clue. He’s an unproven quantity at the highest level and while he could be a star, he could also be a remarkable flop.”

“Wolves certainly need a forward this summer as their depth up top doesn’t really stretch beyond Raul Jimenez and  Jota. Skov would be a bit of a risky signing though. The Danish Superliga isn’t exactly a great standard. Just this season we have seen former Hull City flop Dame N’Doye score 15 goals at the age of 34, despite the fact he only hit five goals during his time in England.

“Of course, it can also go the other way. Teemu Pukki was one of the signings of the season as he won the Golden Boot in the Championship after joining Norwich from Brondby, but the Premier League is a different animal. It’s hard to say whether or not Skov would be a good signing, but if Wolves really want to have a go at breaking into the top six they should be looking at a much safer option.”
