Hwang Hee-Chan coming in on a permanent basis, after his loan spell at the Molineux last term, is the only first-team signing that the club have completed so far.
It was recently reported that they are looking to bolster their attack with the signing of AS Monaco centre-forward Wissam Ben Yedder.
They are said to be plotting a bid to sign the France international before the end of the transfer window, although it remains to be seen how much it would cost to complete a deal. He joined the Ligue 1 side in a €40m (£34m) move from Sevilla in 2019 and still has two years left to run on his contract.
Wolves must now do whatever it takes to snap up the 31-year-old, as he has the quality to be Lage’s own Robert Lewandowski.
FBRef lists the Bayern Munich superstar as one of the most similar players to Ben Yedder in Europe’s top five leagues over the last 365 days.
Whilst the Frenchman did not score at the same rate as the Poland international, his finishing was seemingly at a higher level than the Bayern gem, as he outperformed his XG by a greater margin.
Over the course of his career, he has scored 200 goals in 376 games as a striker, playing for Toulouse, Sevilla and Monaco. Meanwhile, Lewandowski has scored 446 goals in 533 matches as a number nine throughout his club career.
Both players are clinical, consistent goalscorers – albeit that the Bayern star has done it over a longer run of matches – and Wolves would benefit from having a player of Ben Yedder’s quality in their team.
After scoring just 38 goals in as many Premier League games last term, Lage will surely want a reliable number nine – something like Lewandowski – at the top of the pitch, and the statistics suggest that the Monaco sharp-shooter is the man for the job.
