Their top scorer was Raul Jimenez, but even he only managed a mediocre six strikes.
Now with his recent pre-season injury having ruled him out for several weeks, Bruno Lage has been left scrambling to find a replacement for both the start of the season and to be his natural successor.
Despite securing a deal for former loanee Hwang Hee-Chan from RB Leipzig, the final weeks of the transfer window leaves Wolves with a huge opportunity to purchase this successor and finally start to phase out the 31-year-old.
This meant that his minutes per goal was around 139, compared to Jimenez’s 441 minutes. It is no surprise to see him labelled a “marksman”, as his proficiency in front of goal makes him a constant goal threat.
He would thrive off the creativity of Pedro Neto and Daniel Podence.
However, his link-up play also suggests that he can offer more than just goals to Lage’s side.
Three assists is a modest return, but averaging 0.6 key passes per game and boasting a 73% pass accuracy outlines him as a solid if unspectacular performer, worthy of being dubbed “remarkable” by Jaquob Crooke.
Available for a reported £20m, it makes perfect sense for Scott Sellars invest in this forward who only seems to be getting better.
Should Lage feel the need to splash the cash on a new striker to dispose of the Mexico international, he should look no further than to Ewood Park, where he can snatch a readymade replacement with nothing but goals in his future.
