Wolves: Journalist drops fresh Renato Sanches transfer update

Wolverhampton Wanderers have had a great first half to their season and will be hoping to continue their consistency and improve areas of their team in the transfer window in order to elevate their chances of finishing in a position which could secure European football next term.

What’s the word?

talkSPORT journalist Alex Crook spoke on Jim White’s morning show on Thursday to discuss potential January transfer, giving updates on the rumoured activities of Premier League clubs.

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

Crook spoke about the potential deal between Wolves and Renato Sanches, claiming that the Old Gold are “looking quite closely” at the 24-year-old. He revealed: “Wolves were trying to push through a deal for Renato Sanches (on deadline day). That move broke down due to a medical issue. He is now fit and is a player, as I understand it, that Wolves are looking quite closely at again.”

The £47k-p/w gem has been heavily linked to a move to Molineux for a while now, and it seemed in the summer that Sanches would become a Wolves player, but the deal fell through on deadline day. However, Bruno Lage could now potentially get a second chance of securing his signature in January.

Fans will be buzzing

Fans will surely be buzzing with the news that Wolves could be reigniting their interest in the Lille midfielder, who won the European Golden Boy award five years ago after his starring role in Portugal’s Euro 2016 triumph.

After popular fan account Wolves Fancast tweeted: “Where do you stand on the rumours Wolves could return to sign Renato Sanches in January? Think it’s possible? Think it’s a PR move that will allow the club to say they tried but couldn’t get over the line before announcing the signing of Hwang to soften the blow?”, one fan replied: “His quality warrants us going in for him again. I’d rather give it everything and fail than not try at all.”

Signing him would be a phenomenal achievement for the Midlands club, considering that Sanches has played his part in qualifying with Lille for the Champions League round of 16, whilst Wolves are currently challenging just to finish in a top half spot in the Premier League. If he were to join the Old Gold, it would surely be with the expectations to secure European football.

Lage could have an outstanding transfer window if he can get this potential signing over the line for the club, and he will be likely working hard to avoid another deadline day disappointment.
