The transfer window is finally open, and with it we must prepare for the barrage of rumors and reports to come.
For wolves, they will be primarily related to improving one area: their attack.
Which is the word?
Nuno Santo’s men were hit hard before the turn of the year when Raúl Jiménez suffered a skull fracture.
Coincidentally, it is someone whom Wolves reportedly wanted to sign in 2019 – Stephane Bahoken.
The new report is courtesy of Football Insider who suggests that Premier League clubs are preparing a move for the Cameroonian forward of 12 international matches.
Should the Wolves sign Bahoken this month?
Bahoken currently plays for Angers in Ligue 1 and is rated at just £ 5.4 million according to Transfer market. Therefore, it is unlikely that it will cost Jeff Shi and company too much money.
Must sign it
He’s not going to fire the Wolves to glory, but that’s not what they need.
Jiménez won’t be out for much longer and, as we’ve already said, they only need basic coverage in January, not someone capable of scoring more than 20 points.
Despite not finding the network on a regular basis, Nuno should feel comfortable getting a piece of jewelry; that’s when you consider the previous business they did with Angers.
The French club have provided Wolves with Romain Saiss and Rayan Ait-Nouri in years past and they have clearly learned a promising soccer education in that part of the world.
Of course they play in different positions, but the French club must be doing something right in preparing their players for bigger moves. Saiss has become a fundamental part of the way the Wolves play, as he possesses the ability to play in a myriad of positions. In addition, great moments occur to him.
The defender scored against Tottenham and then rattled the wood against Manchester United last time out. It has proven to be a consistent outlet for Nuno, one they hope will set an example for Bahoken.
Wolves have certainly had no trouble buying from them before. This would be a canny acquisition, one that solves his problem of lack of depth in attack.
