Wolves: Nelson Semedo linked with Atletico Madrid transfer move

Even just a few days into the 2022 January transfer window, Wolves have been rather busy with their business deals already by recalling Ryan Giles from his loan deal with Cardiff City, as well as signing midfielder Hayao Kawabe from Swiss Super League side Grasshopper Club Zurich.

In terms of outgoing transfers, however, it seems as though the Old Gold could be in danger of losing one of their key players, which will be a big worry for the fans and surely be a potentially big blow for Wolves manager Bruno Lage.

Which club did Wolves loan Willian Jose from in the 2021 January transfer window?

According to a recent report from Spanish media outlet Marca (via Sport Witness), La Liga club Atletico Madrid have added Wolves defender Nelson Semedo to their list of potential replacements for Kieran Trippier who is reportedly close to finalising a deal with fellow Premier League club Newcastle United.

Since joining the Midlands club from Barcelona back in September 2020 in a deal worth a reported fee of around £37m, the Portuguese international has made a total of 53 appearances for Wolves across all competitions, cementing himself as a regular figure in the team.

This season has seen the 28-year-old make 17 Premier League appearances and earn himself an overall performance rating of 6.77/10, making him Wolves’ fifth-highest rated outfield player according to WhoScored, further highlighting how significant he has been for Lage this season and why it would be a disaster if he were to leave this month.

With Diego Simeone’s side being linked with a move for Semedo before he left Barcelona and joined Wolves, it’s easy to see why it has now been reported that they see him as a potential replacement for Trippier this time around.

Moving forward, with Semedo’s current contract at Wolves set to expire in the summer of 2023, it could be worth the club offering him a new deal to keep him at Molineux beyond his current terms to make sure he doesn’t get tempted with a move away.

With this in mind, if the Old Gold were able to finish this season in a European place and Lage was to reassure how important Semedo is to his team, this could persuade the defender to extend his deal at the club and put to bed any concerns there may be about his future.
