There could be good news for the Old Gold faithful, with new manager Julen Lopetegui likely to be given some funds in order to add a number of fresh faces to his squad as he looks to assert his own stamp on the team.
That’s according to Sky Sports reporter Dharmesh Sheth, who was speaking to GIVEMESPORT regarding Lopetegui and his talks with the club about a potential budget for January: “I do think so. I do think so. He must have had talks with Wolves that would have involved some sort of reassurance that in the next couple of transfer windows he would be backed.
“Because look, he’s joining a club that is bottom of the Premier League when they resume after the World Cup, and so he is going to need potential reinforcements, even though they spent in excess of £100m in the last transfer window.”
This will be a big boost for the Spaniard and one that could just rejuvenate their campaign. Indeed, the new boss will be able to use the time during the World Cup to assess who he feels is going to make a difference if signed for the club.
It hasn’t taken long for links to emerge, with Wolves reportedly keen on Real Madrid duo Mariano Diaz and Nacho Fernandez and with the side struggling both defensively and going forward, they could be crucial signings.
In just 15 Premier League matches this season, Wolves have scored only eight goals and conceded 24, rooting them to the bottom of the table.
Bruno Lage signed Diego Costa and Sasa Kalajdzic in the summer in the hopes of bolstering a drab Wolves attack that netted just 38 league goals in 2021/22, however, they are both yet to score this season, although the Austrian is out for the long-term after suffering an injury on his debut.
The former Sevilla manager looks set to be heavily backed in the transfer market, and he will be keen on spending wisely on players who can give the squad a boost, without breaking the bank to do so.
If he makes a couple of shrewd signings, then it could prove to be the catalyst that saves their season and will vindicate the decision to sack Lage in October.
