Wolves must revive their interest in Odsonne Edouard

New Wolves boss Bruno Lage has been going about his business at Molineux in a remarkably quiet fashion.

It looked all doom and gloom on the transfer front initially, with the fear of Ruben Neves and Adama Traore potentially leaving hanging over them.

However, their window lifted off in some style on Sunday morning when they confirmed the signing of Trincao.

The Portuguese has signed from Barcelona on a loan deal with the view to signing him permanently in a year’s time.

Trincao was first linked with the club earlier this year but it looked as though their interest had gone dry. Though, work continued behind the scenes as Lage made the attacker his second acquisition of the summer.

The 21-year-old is a particularly tricky customer to deal with, completing 2.3 dribbles per match during the 2019/20 campaign at Braga.

He evidently loves taking players on and alongside Traore and Pedro Neto, he could prove devastating in the final third.

Should Wolves sign Edouard?

Yes please!

Yes please!

No thanks!

No thanks!

All Wolves need to find now is regular goals. Raul Jimenez has made a full recovery from a fractured skull but without his presence, they lacked someone who could find the net regularly.

Neto won the club’s Player of the Season award but he only beat the goalkeeper on five occasions.

Therefore, the arrival of a new striker could be exactly what they need to kick on under a new manager.

Wolves have been linked with a move for Celtic attacker Odsonne Edouard in previous months and they may now have an ideal opportunity to sign him.

Leicester looked to have a deal wrapped up to bring him to the King Power for just £15m but they decided against that move and landed Patson Daka from RB Salzburg instead.

Lage has limited money to spend this summer so the price tag should be perfect, especially for a player of his talents.

Blessed with a wonderful first touch and the ability to run the channels, Edouard is a ruthless striker.

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

He scored 22 goals last term, taking his tally for the Hoops to 83 strikes in 186 matches. That’s a wonderful tally for a player who’s still young at the age of 23.

Speaking about the Frenchman’s game last season, ex-Celtic figure Frank McGarvey commented: “I just love watching Edouard. He has that bit of magic in his feet, and he reminds me of Charlie Nicholas. You just know if he gets the ball just outside of the box the other team are in trouble.

His former coach, Jean-Claude Giuntini, added: “He never doubts his qualities. But this behaviour can create panic – for the opposition defenders.

“He had an excellent sense of anticipation which gave him a remarkable ability to read play. And he had a considerable skill for shooting – his efforts were targeted, precise and powerful.”

Some may doubt whether he can transition smoothly from Scottish football to England but you only need to look at the impact of Virgil van Dijk since moving from Celtic.

Edouard would surely thrive in the Premier League and at £15m he would be a mere snip for a Wolves team lacking goals.
