Whilst Wolves’ Europa League journey may have been cut short at the quarter-final stage, fans of the Molineux side will no doubt have been watching the final with a keen eye.
The team that knocked them out, Sevilla, triumphed 3-2 over Inter on Friday evening, thus sealing yet another Europa League title in their history. And one man who certainly impressed was Lucas Ocampos.
As per Sofascore, he had a 100% dribble success rate, provided one key pass, won four of his five ground duels and earned two free-kicks for his side too.
And with Sky Sports reporter Rob Dorsett claiming that Nuno Espirito Santo’s side are interested in signing him this summer, Wolves fans flooded to Twitter to share their reactions about being linked with the winger.
Ocampos is a Rolls Royce be Andy been saying for ages pick a player who you could realistically sign to make us top 4. It’s him. Can’t see it happening tho!

A couple of fans seemed to take issue with Ocampos’ play-acting, slamming the fact that he spent a lot of time on the floor trying to con the ref into blowing the whistle.
Spent a lot of time on the floor trying to cheat the ref. Looked good when he stayed on his feet.

No thanks. This guy it’s an actor more than a player. Always crying on the floor for fouls.

Ocampos has enjoyed a terrific season with Sevilla this year, netting 17 times in 44 games across all competitions, including the match-winning strike in the clash against Wolves in the quarter-finals.
At 26, he is entering the prime years of his career, and would bring the proven quality and end product that Wolves will need next season as they attempt to qualify for European football once again.
