Wolves battling Manchester City for Antonee Robinson

Bruno Lage has only been the Wolves manager for a matter of weeks now but he’s already made some impressive strides in the transfer window.

The Old Gold have limited finances to spend but they’ve still acquired Trincao and welcomed back Rayan Ait-Nouri.

What’s the word?

Wolves have a number of areas they need to strengthen heading into next season after they ended 2020/21 in an uninspiring 13th place.

One player they could bring to Molineux is Fulham full-back Antonee Robinson.

That’s according to The Sun’s Alan Nixon who took to social media on Sunday to suggest that the Old Gold and Manchester City were set to battle it out for his signature.

He tweeted: “WOLVES. Keen on Antonee Robinson at Fulham. Along with MAN CITY. Both see him as top squad addition on left.”

Should Wolves sign Robinson?

No thanks!

No thanks!

Yes please!

Yes please!

A further report on the same day suggested that the Midlands club would be happy to sign him providing the price tag was around £10m.

Exciting signing

With the potential and attributes that Robinson has at his disposal, this would be a particularly exciting signing for Wolves.

At the age of just 23, the left-back is still learning his trade and is at a stage in his career where the Old Gold can still develop him for the future.

A rampant threat on the left-hand side, Robinson has the qualities to take their play to the next level on that third of the pitch.

Pedro Neto has made offensive areas on the left his home since Diogo Jota departed for Liverpool and the idea of the two linking up in tandem is something to get excited about.

Neto was the club’s top scorer and Player of the Season last term, and he did all without a permanent choice of left-back.

Jonny and Marcal spent large parts of the campaign out injured while it took Ait-Nouri a few months to get acclimatised to English football.

Can you guess these obscure Wolves players? Here's the first one...

That said, the Frenchman put in some encouraging performances towards the back end of the campaign that clearly influenced them when determining whether to sign him permanently this summer.

With his acquisition in mind, it might be a bit peculiar to consider signing another full-back.

After all, Wolves signed four of them last summer with the arrivals of Marcal, Ki-Jana Hoever, Nelson Semedo and Ait-Nouri.

That said, with Ruben Vinagre joining Sporting on loan, they could do with an extra body to tide them over.

Robinson has the potential to get the Molineux crowd off their feet too. He is a wonderful player in possession of the ball, amassing 1.8 dribbles per game in the Premier League. For context, only Neto and Adama Traore were more successful with their take-ons last season.

Despite their options on the left, this has the potential to be an eye-catching signing for the supporters. They should be enthralled by what he could bring to the Midlands.
