Wolves: Lage dealt a potential transfer blow

Wolves have made no secret about their intentions to get stuck into the winter transfer window, and will be looking to add quality to their team to keep up their impressive form going in the second half of the season.

Bruno Lage and Wolverhampton Wanderers have been heavily linked with a number of players this season, as the side becomes a more attractive one to join thanks to their current form in the Premier League that has seen the side sitting in sixth ahead of Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur.

One player that the club was linked to is Manchester United misfit, Donny Van De Beek.

The former Ajax midfielder had found himself out of favour in the Manchester United team under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer but did make an appearance in their shocking 4-1 defeat to Watford where he scored the only goal for the Red Devils.

However, the events that followed the game could be a blow to Lage’s plans to bring the Dutchman to Molineux.

Do you think Van de Beek would join Wolves?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Solskjaer was sacked on Sunday morning following the devastating defeat for United that pushed them further away from the top four, and further away from catching Wolves in the Europa League spot in sixth.

Man United are yet to announce a new manager, with many high profile names being thrown into the mix including, Erik Ten Hag.

Ten Hag was the manager who developed van de Beek into the incredible force he became for Ajax in his time at the club before his move to Manchester, scoring 41 goals in 175 appearances.

If he was to take the reigns at Old Trafford, or even in contention for the position, the Dutch playmaker may put his push for a move on pause, which will be extremely frustrating for those chasing him, including Wolves.

Can you guess which Wolves player scored the most goals in all competitions during the season in question? Let's start with 2010/11...

Ten Hag has always had praise for the Dutchman, and spoke out on the 24-year-old before he was sold;

“Donny has become an absolute star for us.”

It will be interesting to see what the £22.5m-rated midfielder does in the January transfer window and whether Lage will put an offer on the table for him.

Wolves will be looking to establish themselves and get comfortable in the top six position ahead of the winter transfer window to attract high-quality players that will help them secure Europa League football in the second half of season.

Sadly, their hopes of landing the £35m van de Beek may have just taken a hit, something that will rightfully leave Lage gutted considering the playmaker’s star quality and what he could have added in the Midlands.

In other news, Wolves could be on the verge of repeating their Willian Jose nightmare…
