Wolves: Sky Sports man claims Wanderers have held Pablo Sarabia transfer talks

Wolverhampton Wanderers have held talks with Paris Saint-Germain about the potential January signing of their forward Pablo Sarabia.

What’s the latest?

Wolves have made a bright start to life under Julen Lopetegui having already climbed their way outside of the relegation zones and into 16th spot in the Premier League table.

However, it does not seem as if the Spaniard is completely satisfied with the progress they have made already and is eyeing further additions this month.

Lopetegui has already seen the Brazilian forward, Matheus Cunha, come through the doors at Molineux as well as Mario Lemina from nice.

And according to Sky Sports reporter Dharmesh Sheth, Wolves are now looking into the possibility of signing the 30-year-old forward:

“They’re also in talks with Paris Saint-Germain to sign the striker up Pablo Sarabia; that could be a really good signing, actually.”

Not settling

It was a dreadful start to the 2022/23 campaign for Wolves under Bruno Lage, but it will give their fans a lot of confidence in Lopetegui given they are not settling with the progress they’ve made in recent weeks.

And the potential addition of Sarabia could bring a lot of experience to the Wolves frontline alongside the fairly young Brazilian, Cunha.

Although he has not often been the first choice for Christophe Galtier, the Spaniard has made 14 appearances for PSG in the league this season (via Transfermarkt).

Would Pablo Sarabia be a good signing?

Yes

Yes

No

No

But his minutes have been limited this season with those 14 league appearances conjuring up just 362 minutes of action given only three of those games came from the starting XI.

However, during his spell with Sporting CP last season, the winger shone with a return of 15 goals and eight assists in his 29 league appearances (via Transfermarkt).

And in total, the Spaniard was able to provide a seriously impressive return of 31 goal involvements across all competitions for the Portuguese giants.

Although Wolves have made improvements under Lopetegui so far, it is apparent their output in front of goal is still not quite where it needs to be.

No side in the Premier League has scored fewer than Wolves this season (12) which will likely be a concern for their Spanish manager.

However, if they were able to bring in Sarabia and he was able to find his scoring boots again, this could potentially be a big boost to their survival hopes.
