As the end of the January transfer window approaches, it seems as though Wolves could be eyeing up a bit of late business that would give the Old Gold a big boost in one particular area that could set them up for a strong finish to the season.
What’s the talk?
Speaking to GIVEMESPORT, journalist Sami Mokbel had this to say on which areas Wolves manager Bruno Lage would want to strengthen his squad.
He said: “A striker for them, I’m sure, would be at the forefront of Bruno Lage’s mind. [Raul] Jimenez is back, but they certainly want more goals and more of a different kind of threat than he would offer, as good as a player he is.”
With 19 goals scored in 21 Premier League games so far this season, only Norwich City and Burnley have found the back of the net on fewer occasions, highlighting the possibility that freshening up their attacking line could be a good step forward for Wolves.
Fans will be buzzing
Taking into account how Jimenez has only managed to score four goals in 19 league appearances this season and the fact that Fabio Silva has only scored four goals in 43 league appearances since his arrival at Molineux, perhaps adding another striker to their squad could be what they need to become a deadlier team moving forward.
If Lage is keen on adding a striker to his squad before the January transfer window closes, this would surely be an exciting prospect for the Wolves fans, one that leaves them buzzing, especially if they get a player in that can start scoring goals on a regular basis to push the club closer to a European place in the league table.
Do Wolves need to sign a striker this month?
With time being of the essence, Wolves and Lage will have to move swiftly if they want to identify and launch a move for a striker that could come in and hit the ground running in terms of scoring goals.
However, with Jimenez having made so many appearances for the Old Gold this season in the league, it would surely take a seriously skilled striker to come in and immediately take the Mexican’s place in the team.
