Wolves unlikely to sign Okay Yokuslu

Wolves were never going to spend a huge amount this summer considering their huge financial constraints but it has been a disappointing window nonetheless.

Although Trincao has arrived at Molineux from Barcelona, there hasn’t been a great deal to shout about when it comes to the transfer window.

What’s the word?

One player who could have been on his way to the Midlands again was Okay Yokuslu.

The Turkey international shone for West Brom despite their relegation during a loan spell in the second half of last season.

He has returned to Celta Vigo and was linked with a move to Wolves over the last few weeks.

However, in a crushing blow for supporters, they are now unlikely to sign him according to Express & Star reporter Liam Keen.

Do Wolves need to sign more players?

No chance!

No chance!

Of course!

Of course!

Taking to Twitter on Wednesday afternoon, he revealed: “I understand reports linking Okay Yokuslu to Wolves are wide of the mark.”

Fans reeling

Before Nuno Santo left Wolves he identified that a clear plan had been put in place for Wolves in the market.

He suggested that they would plan better after finishing 13th in the league, leading to smarter signings in the transfer window and the strengthening of the first-team squad.

However, he left under a cloud of smoke after being told that he’d have little to work with on the financial front.

Everything has now changed at Molineux with Nuno departing and Bruno Lage being welcomed as his successor.

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

Just as his predecessor was told, money hasn’t been forthcoming to spend on new players.

Considering how Wolves did last season, this should be of particular concern to everyone at the club. Throw in the fact they have a small squad that was ravaged by injuries too, and supporters should be even more aghast that they won’t turn to someone like Yokuslu.

Throughout 2020/21, the Old Gold were a seriously depleted side. Jonny suffered back to back ACL injuries, Raul Jimenez was out from November onwards with a fractured skull while Daniel Podence also spent large periods out with injury.

Marcal was another who spent plenty of time on the sidelines while Pedro Neto broke his knee cap in the back end of the campaign.

If Wolves are going to return to European football – an arduous task given how much those in the top half have spent – they need to add more bodies to their ranks.

Yokuslu would have been a vibrant start, particularly after how he settled in so quickly at West Brom.

Although Albion were relegated to the Championship, he stood out by producing 2.4 successful tackles per game and a remarkably impressive 2.2 interceptions per game.

Passing on the chance to sign him, therefore, is likely to leave supporters perplexed.

AND in other news, Wolves eye swoop for £16.2m-rated gem with “crazy technique”, he could be a new Traore…
