Wolves can finally replace Jota by signing Danjuma

Rather unexpectedly last weekend, Wolves wrapped up the most eye-catching transfer of their window to date.

Bruno Lage welcomed Trincao to Molineux as the Portuguese ace completed a surprising loan deal from Barcelona.

On the chalkboard

The youngster’s arrival in the Midlands is a timely one considering the struggles they could have offensively heading into the new campaign.

Raul Jimenez has only just returned from a fractured skull while Adama Traore could be heading for pastures new once he returns from the European Championships.

It’s also likely that Wolves will be without the services of Pedro Neto at the start of the season as he recovers from a broken knee cap.

Neto won the club’s Player of the Year award for 2020/21 so will be a huge loss to their chances.

However, despite his marvellous performances last term, you sense as though the Old Gold are still missing someone like Diogo Jota.

He left the Midlands behind 12 months ago as Liverpool prised him away in a deal worth a whopping £41m. Jota enjoyed an impressive first campaign at Anfield, scoring a hat-trick in the Champions League on his way to scoring 13 times in all competitions.

The solution

With Wolves still requiring some extra firepower in the final third, Lage could finally replace Jota by signing Arnaut Danjuma.

Should Wolves sign Danjuma?

Yes please!

Yes please!

No thanks!

No thanks!

Football League World reported a few months ago that they were just one of a couple of Premier League sides vying for his signature.

Danjuma was mesmeric in the Championship last term, finding the back of the net on 17 occasions and also laying on eight assists for his teammates.

Speaking about his form, ex-Bournemouth boss Jonathan Woodgate said: “I know last season that he didn’t really get a run in the Premier League and he maybe found it a bit difficult to get game time, but this season he’s been outstanding.”

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

Woodgate added: “I can only talk of what he’s done under my reign, but at the minute, he’s playing some exceptional football, and what else he is doing is working for the team.”

The winger was a crafty trickster last season, beating players for fun and scoring some simply outrageous strikes.

Like Jota, he is capable of finding the net on a regular basis and cut his cloth in the Championship first, just as the Portuguese star did.

In the second-tier, Danjuma completed 1.8 dribbles per game. Coincidentally, that replicates the number the former Wolves man recorded in his final campaign at Molineux.

The Bournemouth star’s 2.1 shots per game in 2020/21 is also just 0.1 more than Jota managed in his final year with Wolves.

Capable of playing on either flank and through the middle, Danjuma would be the perfect replacement this summer.

AND in other news, Wolves eye swoop for “fantastic” 25-cap colossus, he may axe one of Nuno’s favourites…
