Bolla could save Lage and Wolves millions next season

Wolves are currently going through a right-back crisis that may cost them European football next season, with Nelson Semedo picking up an injury that could rule him out until the end of the season.

Meanwhile, manager Bruno Lage has very publicly criticised former Liverpool prospect Ki-Jana Hoever’s mentality, and it’s unlikely that he will be featuring in the first team any time soon.

Currently, left-back Jonny Otto is filling in on the right flank, and although he is more than capable of playing on that side due to his ability to play with either foot, the position isn’t one he has played too many times in his career and Lage might be looking to sign a more permanent right-back in the summer.

Should Bolla be given a chance at Wolves next season?

Yes, he has shown promise!

However, one player that could potentially save the club millions to provide healthier competition for Semedo’s spot and be a competent replacement should he become injured again is Hungarian full-back Bendeguz Bolla – who had Jack Grealish in his back-pocket during an international match with England last year.

Although Hungary were ultimately defeated 4-0, he managed to prevent the Manchester City star from scoring, having a more comfortable night than his teammates on the right-hand side.

The 22-year-old signed from Hungarian outfit Fehervar last summer for £1.8m, before immediately heading out on loan to Grasshopper Club Zurich for the season.

Having scored three goals and created two more from the right-wing back position in just 21 appearances in the Swiss Super League this season, many Wolves fans may well be wishing that they had him available now and not just in the new campaign.

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

Proving himself as an attacking threat, Bolla takes on average one shot per game, as well as making just under one key pass and completing over one dribble per game too.

On the defensive end, he has also proved to be solid, making zero mistakes leading to a shot so far in the Swiss top flight this season, as well as making over one tackle, over one interception, one clearance and being dribbled past less than once per game.

With the club yet to replace the attacking output that came from Irishman Matt Doherty after his transfer to Tottenham, Bolla could become a key player at Molineux, and there is definitely also a chance to move above Semedo as first choice.
