Wolves can save millions by unleashing Bendeguz Bolla

Wolverhampton Wanderers can effectively make a new signing this summer without needing to spend a penny of their transfer budget.

Bruno Lage has an established right-back by the name of Bendeguz Bolla in his ranks at Molineux, although like many prospects in the West Midlands, he is yet to make a first team appearance for the club, having been loaned out to Wolves’ official partnership side Grasshopper Zurich.

The 22-year-old, who is renowned for his searing pace, has had a very fruitful season in Switzerland. He has been pushed higher up the pitch in a right wing-back role across a 3-4-2-1 system and has consequently discovered his goal scoring touch.

It’s a move which has gone so well for the Hungarian that he has attracted the interest of Austrian club Rapid Vienna and, to quote The Athletic‘s Tim Spiers, ‘he is probably the highest rated of the players there [at Grasshopper]’.

Will Bolla make the grade at Wolves?





Four goals and three assists from right wing-back should be enough to coax Lage into giving him his first opportunity in the Wolves first team, especially considering that Jonny, Nelson Semedo, Marcal and Rayan Ait-Nouri have managed just three goals and three assists between them this season.

It says a lot about Bolla’s newly-found potency in front of goal, and with Marcal leaving at the end of the season, the Hungarian gem could give Lage a quality option at full-back.

Can you guess which Wolves player scored the most goals in all competitions during the season in question? Let's start with 2010/11...

Having functioned higher up the pitch this season for Grasshopper, he could help the Old Gold in their bid to add goals, having created four big chances in Switzerland’s top flight. That figure would rank him second in the Wolves squad behind Daniel Podence, who has created seven big chances this season.

Lage would be wise to look within the Wolves loanee ranks this summer as part of what could be a sizeable squad rebuild for the Black Country club. By unleashing Bolla next term, the manager may just save the Old Gold a few million quid in the transfer market which could be put to good use elsewhere.
