Wolves interested in signing Khvicha Kvaratskhelia

If you consider the huge amount of spending Wolves undertook last summer, this year has been relatively quiet in comparison.

The Old Gold have kept hold of their best players and added Trincao to their ranks, a player who should earn the admiration of supporters quite quickly.

What’s the word?

Another player who could catch the imagination quickly is Georgian winger Khvicha Kvaratskhelia.

According to his agent, Mamuka Jugheli, Wolves are one of a number of teams interested in securing his services before the window shuts at the end of the month.

Should Wolves sign Kvaratskhelia?

Of course!

Of course!

No way!

No way!

Speaking to Sportall, he said: “Khvicha is wanted by almost every team in the English Premier League, for example, Everton, Brighton and Wolves, but one thing is interest and the other is a real offer.

“Apart from Inter from Italy, Kvaratskhelia is also wanted by Juventus. There’s the interest of Atalanta, Napoli and Lazio. The initiative is shown by at least five clubs of the German Bundesliga.”

The Rubin Kazan winger is valued at £16.2m via Transfermarkt.

The next Traore

Kvaratskhelia may not be a household name but he looks like an exceptional player, someone who could take the Premier League by storm with his remarkable trickery and dribbling.

He only found the net on four occasions last term but was incredibly creative, providing his teammates with eight assists in the Russian top-flight.

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

Furthermore, no player in the entire division completed more successful dribbles than the 20-year-old last season.

The Georgia international managed a whopping 78 at a rate of 3.4 per game. That tally is even better in World Cup qualifying with Kvaratskhelia managing five dribbles per match.

Described as a player with “crazy technique” by Russian coach Denis Bushuev, he also compared the youngster to two of the trickiest wingers we’ve seen in recent history.

“He is from the same constellation of players as Ribery or Robben,” Bushuev admitted.

On that evidence, it’s clear to see who he’s most comparable to at Wolves; Adama Traore.

Like the Rubin Kazan attacker, the Spaniard is an incredible dribbler who is capable of taking down even the sternest of defences.

In 2020/21, no player in the Premier League made more dribbles than Traore who registered a jaw-dropping 153 at 4.1 per outing.

Capable of playing on the left, Kvaratskhelia would provide Pedro Neto with some reliable competition. Combine that with his incredible ball skills and you’d have a fine signing.
