Wolves plotting January swoop for Guilherme Arana

Wolverhampton Wanderers are plotting a swoop to bring Guilherme Arana to Molineux in the January transfer window.

What’s the talk?

That’s according to a claim made by transfer expert Ekrem Konur, with the journalist revealing on Twitter that Jeff Shi is planning to open negotiations with Atletico Mineiro regarding a deal for the left-back this winter.

Previous reports had claimed that Wolves were scouting the player following his highly impressive performances for Brazil at this summer’s Olympics, while Everton are also believed to be monitoring the 24-year-old ahead of a potential January move.

In his tweet, Konur said: “Wolves have added Guilherme Arana to their transfer list. They plan to talk with Atletico MG in January.”

Would Arana be a good signing for Wolves?

Lage would love him

It is easy to see why Shi would be keen to open negotiations regarding a deal for Arana in the coming months, as the left-back impressed for Brazil this summer, as well for Atletico Mineiro so far this season.

Indeed, over his six appearances in the Olympics, the £7.2m-rated defender helped his side to keep three clean sheets, registered one assist and created one big chance for his teammates, as well as making 1.2 key passes, 0.7 interceptions and 2.3 tackles and winning 5.5 duels per game.

These returns saw the 24-year-old average a SofaScore match rating of 7.17, ranking him as Brazil’s fourth-best performer on the way to winning the Olympic gold medal.

Furthermore, the player who Andre Jardine dubbed a “spectacular” talent has also impressed over his 17 Serie A appearances this season, helping Atletico Mineiro to keep seven clean sheets, providing five assists and creating three big chances – returns which have seen the left-back average a SofaScore match rating of 7.15.

As such, being a player who is equally adept in a creative capacity as he is solid at the back, Arana seems like someone who Lage would love to have as a left wing-back option in his Wolves squad, as well as being a player who could help inspire the Midlanders to a top 10 finish in the league this season.
