Providing Bruno Lage becomes the new manager of Wolves, he’ll have a mighty job on this hands.
This summer will be a difficult one for the Old Gold with top players being required to be sold before they welcome in new additions.
One way Wolves could get around their inability to spend this summer is by utilising their option to buy clauses.
They had three players on loan this term with Rayan Ait-Nouri, Willian Jose and Vitinha all arriving.
After Jose’s one goal spell in the Midlands, he will presumably head back to Real Sociedad but there is a dilemma over Vitinha.
Although Vitinha has an immense amount of potential, his numbers this season weren’t overly impressive. The 21-year-old ended up claiming just one goal and a solitary assist.
The option to buy Vitinha this summer stands at €16m (£13.7m) so with funds running tight, it may not be the wisest of ideas to invest.
Before he departed the club, Nuno Santo recognised that Wolves would need to plan better for the window, hinting at more experienced players arriving.
That could put a hold on Vitinha signing on at Molineux permanently which means the club need an alternative lined up.
They could find that in Liverpool’s Harry Wilson. Wolves wanted to sign the 24-year-old back in 2019 but he ultimately penned terms with Bournemouth on loan.
He was relegated with the Cherries but popped up with seven Premier League strikes. He then spent the current campaign with Cardiff in the Championship where he flourished vibrantly.
Wilson beat the goalkeeper on seven occasions and registered a further 12 assists.
A sweet timer of the football, he’d offer a lot more to Wolves than Vitinha and is already proven in the top-flight.
Liverpool are thought to be seeking around £15m for his services this summer; a similar fee that Vitinha will command.
Therefore, there should only really be one answer; it’s time for Wolves to revive their chase of the Welshman.
