Wolves have had a reverse few weeks heading into the festive period and now they just need a sense of stability.
However, with another transfer window on the horizon, that could be anything but the case.
Which is the word?
Nuno Santo’s men are changing line-ups at the moment and experiencing mixed results.
They drew with Southampton and beat Arsenal with a four-man baseline, but then lost to Liverpool and Aston Villa.
However, after returning to a three-man defense, they beat Chelsea 2-1. What they could potentially do now is a few more bodies to allow that four-man defense to flourish.
One player were linked At the end of November, Jorge Mendes’s client, Renato Sanches, was present.
The 23-year-old who currently plays for Lille was drawing the attention of the Wolves and now they have received a boost in their search for the Portuguese.
That is because according to Receive French football news, his club is in dire financial straits with debts approaching 200 million euros (£ 179.7).
Thus, the report suggests that the idea of Sanches leaving Lille has not been ruled out. An English club reportedly offered 70 million euros (£ 62.9 million) for his services last summer.
Should the Wolves sign Renato Sanches?
According to Transfer market, the midfielder is valued at just £ 18 million right now.
A phenomenal player
Sanches had a terrible season on loan at Swansea in the Premier League during the 2017/18 season. It started nine times and it has failed to contribute to a single goal.
However, his football has advanced by leaps and bounds since then, especially in the last two years.
After joining Lille, he has been extremely effective in a box-to-box midfield role, helping to four goals in 19 appearances last season. This season he has only scored one time, but his overall game has been excellent.
Described As someone with “the strength of a WWE heavyweight” according to the Bundesliga website, he possesses qualities in his game that few in the Wolves’ midfield have.
For example, it would bring a greater ball carrying capacity to the center of the park. He has amassed 2.1 Dribble per game in Ligue 1, a count that usurps Joao Moutinho, Ruben Neves and Leander Dendoncker.
Sanches is the real deal.
