Wolves have been linked with a move for Rangers boss Steven Gerrard recently and it would be a huge blow if the 40-year-old manager were to depart Ibrox this summer.
According to The Athletic, whilst Wolves are close to appointing Benfica boss Bruno Lage as their successor to Nuno Espirito Santo, there are still doubts over whether he will be eligible for a work permit, whilst Gerrard and Frank Lampard have both been considered as options by the Molineux outfit.
Fortunately for Rangers fans, it is claimed that Gerrard has not been formally approached by Wolves about their vacant manager position but if the appointment of Lage falls through, it would not be a surprise if they do act on their reported interest in the Liverpool legend.
Wolves have established themselves as a Premier League force to be reckoned with since their promotion to the top-flight in 2018, as they have secured seventh, seventh and 13th placed finishes in their three seasons back in the Premier League.
Whilst this season was something of a struggle for the Midlands club, they were without star striker Raul Jimenez for much of the campaign after his fractured skull injury, whilst fellow forward Diogo Jota joined Liverpool last summer.
The Old Gold have a recent European campaign under their belt, as they reached the quarter-finals of the Europa League, so certainly have the potential to challenge both domestically and in Europe in the near future.
Although the “amazing” Gerrard has just won the title at Rangers and is undoubtedly looking forward to his side playing in the Champions League next season, Wolves would offer him a chance to test himself in the Premier League at an established club, which might just be enough to lure him away from Ibrox.
Certainly, when you consider the impact he has had during his time at Ibrox, it would be a massive blow to Rangers chairman Douglas Park if he were to leave the club this summer, so Gers fans will be desperate for Lage’s work permit to be approved so that he can take over at Molineux.
