Wolves offered chance to sign Martin Braithwaite

Bruno Lage has completed the additions of a few exciting players during his opening few weeks in charge of Wolves.

Francisco Trincao has signed on loan from La Liga giants, Barcelona, but the Old Gold could be about to extend the relationship between the two clubs.

What’s the word?

Last weekend it was revealed that Wolves were interested in signing Barca striker Martin Braithwaite this summer.

However, there has now been an update on their pursuit of the 56-cap Denmark international.

According to The Daily Mail, they have been offered the chance by the Catalan club to sign Braithwaite.

Should Wolves sign Braithwaite?

No chance!

No chance!

Definitely!

Definitely!

The additions of Sergio Aguero and Memphis Depay have significantly dampened his chances of receiving football in Spain and with Wolves on the hunt for a new striker, he seems to fit the fill for the manager.

Willian Jose 2.0

Braithwaite is one of the most enigmatic players in European football at the moment.

On his day, he possesses immense composure and can really trouble a defence. The very fact Barcelona were interested in him in the first place says a lot.

However, more often than not, he’s struggled to score goals on a regular enough basis.

Tony Pulis once described the 30-year-old as “exceptional” but he’s one of many figures within football who have expressed differing opinions on the forward.

He slammed Braithwaite for being disrespectful to senior club officials at Middlesbrough in light of his departure from the Riverside.

Since heading to Spain, he’s hardly set the world alight. The attacker found the net on 13 occasions in 48 outings for Leganes and has beaten the goalkeeper just seven times since signing for Barcelona over a year ago.

In light of that, Wolves should consider another option if they wish to bolster their forward line this summer.

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

After all, the last thing that Lage wants is a repeat scenario of their Willian Jose situation.

He appeared to be a similar profile to Raul Jimenez when he was brought in on loan in January but looked completely ordinary during his time at Molineux.

Jose was another to score goals on a semi-regular basis in Spain, just as Braithwaite has done, but in English football, he was nothing short of a flop.

The Brazilian featured 17 times under Nuno Santo but only scored once.

Consequently, Wolves must now look for someone with a better track record to fill the void of Jimenez should he sustain another injury.

AND in other news, Wolves eye swoop for £16.2m-rated “monster”, he could be their new Jesus Vallejo…
