Wolves: Insider drops summer claim on Molineux duo

Wolves have seen a number of standout players move away from Molineux in recent months and years, such as Diogo Jota and Adama Traore.

Looking ahead to the summer transfer window, it seems as though the Old Gold could be at risk of seeing a couple more of their prominent players saying goodbye to the club.

What’s the talk?

Speaking to GIVEMESPORT, journalist and transfer insider Pete O’Rourke was discussing the upcoming summer transfer window and what it could hold for Wolves duo Joao Moutinho and Romain Saiss, who are both out of contract at the end of the season.

He said: “I’m sure lots of clubs will be looking at both players and thinking they can maybe lure them away from the club with lucrative offers.”

Which club did Wolves loan Willian Jose from in the 2021 January transfer window?

Focusing on Saiss, the defender has made more blocks (49), interceptions (65) and clearances (156) than any other Wolves player in the league this season. That highlights just how crucial he has been for the Old Gold at the back and how much he has contributed to their solid defensive record, with just 23 goals conceded in 28 games.

This also shows how big a miss he would be if he does end up moving away from Molineux in the summer and the club don’t replace him.

Moutinho would also be a major loss for Bruno Lage’s side, as he has racked up the joint-highest average of key passes per game (1.2) and the second-highest passing success percentage out of anyone to have started more than one league match this season with 86.6%, making him an important cog in Wolves’ midfield.

Should Wolves offer Saiss and Moutinho new contracts?

Yes

Yes

No

No

With all this in mind, it’d be safe to suggest that Wolves fans would be terrified by the prospect of seeing both players leaving the club in the summer, and the pressure would rightly be on to find suitable replacements for them before the 2022/23 season starts.

The club should definitely approach the two players and their representatives to see if they would be willing to extend their stay at Molineux and continue being important figures in Lage’s team.
