Nuno Santo has reportedly been told to forget about big-money deals this month.
Thus, it feels unlikely the Old Gold will be able to strengthen significantly. Considering they’ve won just two of their last nine games, this is a big concern.
Bearing in mind the aforementioned statement, it’s hard to picture Wolves signing anybody. Of course, that won’t deter the rumour mill from kicking into gear.
Tim Spiers reported earlier this month that signing Christian Eriksen was pretty much out of the question but there has now been an update on his future.
Per Gianluca Di Marzio, Wolves have specifically contacted the player’s entourage over a possible transfer. Ajax have also done the same although their interest isn’t completely concrete at this stage.
It’s not known how much the Dane would cost but Inter spent £16.9m on Eriksen just a year ago.
When Raul Jimenez first set foot in English football it was unknown how he would do. This was a player arriving from Benfica having scored just eight goals in over 40 appearances.
However, his impact in the Premier League has been phenomenal. The Mexican has racked up 47 strikes in just 110 outings for Nuno’s team and has been the very definition of a game-changer.
Eriksen may play in a completely different position but in terms of instant impact and providing supporters with magical moments, they could seal their best signing since Jimenez with the Denmark international.
Vitally, the attacking midfielder has experience of life in England already and was an ingenious talent at Spurs. Although his final season in north London curtailed disastrously, he scored 69 times and registered 89 assists for the Lilywhites.
Time and time again he’d come up with vital goals, unleashing fierce efforts from dead-ball situations and from outside the area.
As of January 1st 2019, Eriksen had scored 19 goals from outside the 18-yard area in the top-flight, a tally that surpassed every single player in the Premier League from when he first made his debut in 2013. If that doesn’t have magic written all over it, nothing will.
Though, he isn’t all about scoring goals. Described as “ruthless” by Jamie Redknapp for his playmaking abilities in 2018, the 28-year-old can pick the lock of even the very best around.
For instance, Eriksen registered four assists during Tottenham’s run to the Champions League final in the 2018/19 season.
He is a wonderful talent who on his day is capable of producing incredible moments. Like Jimenez, he could take Wolves to European football and possibly even greater heights. This would be one of Jeff Shi’s best signings at Molineux yet.
