Should Wolves sign Moussa Sissoko?

Bruno Lage is yet to get to work in the transfer window since becoming the manager of Wolves but it surely won’t be too long before we start to see movement.

Rui Patricio has been linked with the exit door and with Portugal now out of Euro 2020, the finishing touches to a deal with Roma could be put in place.

What’s the word?

Jose Sa has been touted as the Portuguese’s replacement between the sticks but they could also need a successor to Ruben Neves in midfield.

Patricio’s countryman is one of the most expendable players this summer with an asking price of £40m being reported.

One player they could look towards is Tottenham’s Moussa Sissoko. The Frenchman is another face at the European Championships but was a bit-part figure at Spurs last term.

Should Wolves sign Moussa Sissoko?

No thanks!

No thanks!

Yes please!

Yes please!

His name was put forward as a potential acquisition to Wolves legend Steve Bull during an interview with This is Futbol.

The club’s record scorer responded: “He’s a quality player and I’m not sure why Newcastle didn’t keep him if he’s a good player, but I would certainly take him [at Wolves] all day long.”

Should they sign him?

If Neves does indeed head for the departure lounge at Molineux, then Sissoko would be a shrewd and clever signing from Lage.

Sissoko might not get the best press from various circles in England but for a club like Wolves, he’d be a fabulous capture.

You only need to look at the France international’s form during his time at Newcastle United.

Before being sold to Tottenham for an eye-catching £30m, he was a dominant box to box midfielder, rampaging forward and bustling opponents to one side while remaining strong defensively.

In his final two campaigns at St James’ Park, the 31-year-old registered 14 goal involvements, proving to be particularly creative with nine assists.

He won 1.5 tackles per game during his final term at Newcastle, a statistic and facet that could make up for the shortfall of Neves leaving. Meanwhile, his 1.5 key passes and 2.3 dribbles per game from that campaign were also particularly impressive.

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

An incredibly strong carrier in possession of the ball, that would add an element of flair to the squad that’s been missing in the middle of the park.

Last term, no midfielder at Wolves managed more dribbles an outing last campaign than Sissoko in 2015/16. In fact, only Adama Traore is a more competent dribbler.

The Spurs general is heading towards the later stages of his career but there is still a player in there to be unlocked. You don’t get in that France side with the depth they have without having incredible talent.

With 259 Premier League appearances to his name, he knows how to perform in the top-flight.

AND in other news, Lage could replace one of Nuno’s favourite Wolves players by signing £20m “diamond”…
