Introducing: The centre-forward Wolves must sign in January, Iago Aspas

Following a poor run of results, Wolves have bounced back superbly in recent weeks, picking up consecutive wins against Chelsea, Newcastle United and Bournemouth. 

And one man who has been key to Wolves’ change in fortunes has been Raul Jimenez, who is having a good season overall.

The 27-year-old arrived at Molineux on loan from Benfica during the summer and has since gone on to score five Premier League goals while providing four assists along the way.

Going forward, though, Wolves could still do with some extra firepower up front if they are to achieve the goals of their ambitious owners, and a certain ex-Liverpool player could just be the man to give them that.

During his stint in the Premier League with the Reds, Iago Aspas failed to make any sort of impact.

The 31-year-old was unable to find the back of the net in any of the 14 league appearances he made and, overall, was a poor signing.

However, since then, he has gone on to become one of the most prolific No.9s in La Liga with the club he initially left Liverpool for, Celta Vigo.

At Abanca-Balaidos following his return, Aspas has scored 65 goals in 117 La Liga games, which is the sort of ammunition up top that could take Wolves to the next level.

With the Spain international also able to play from the right-hand side where he can cut in from with his left foot, he may just be the ideal attacking signing for Wolves given manager Nuno Espirito Santo does not look entirely convinced with his options for that area of the pitch.

Furthermore, once the January transfer window opens, Aspas should be the club’s primary target as they look to do more than just merely survive in English football’s top flight.
