Wolves may already own an asset who can help them to rectify their lack of goals, and you may struggle to guess who that is…
Wolverhampton Wanderers have struggled to score goals this season, with Bruno Lage’s side netting just 33 goals in the Premier League – a stat that means they are the fifth worst attacking side in the league with an average of just one goal per match.
The season has not been prosperous for Jimenez, who has missed the most big chances in the Wolves side this season with eight missed.
One of the Old Gold’s loan stars, however, is not experiencing the same feelings as Lage or Wolves. That man is Learnardo Campana – a player “who can’t stop scoring” according to the MLS via Twitter.
6 foot 2 Campana, who has not played a single minute for Wolves’ first team, is lighting up the MLS with David Beckham-owned Inter Miami CF.
The 21-year-old Ecuadorian has seized his opportunity in Phil Neville’s side this season, netting five goals in eight matches, making him the joint-second top scorer in the league and meaning he has outscored Gonzalo Higuain so far this season.
With the season in America not long starting, Campana has notched up a total of seven returns in nine overall appearances (including the MLS Cup) in a vein of form that has seen him bag six goals and one assist. For comparison, Raul Jimenez has scored six goals in 29 matches in the league this season for Wolves.
If Lage wants him for next season, he will have to convince the player directly, with Inter Miami holding an option to buy clause.
If not, this could potentially turn out to be a big mistake for the Old Gold who would see Campana as one that got away…
