Wolverhampton Wanderers managed to secure another impressive victory last time out as they overcame the challenges of Bournemouth at Molineux.
The Midlands club will have their sights set on securing a European spot in the current campaign, with a successful January transfer window only helping their cause.
However, having spent a lot of money back in the summer transfer window, perhaps Wolves should adopt a different approach by bringing a youngster into the fray.
Indeed, after witnessing Morgan Gibbs-White’s rise to stardom in the Premier League, there’s no reason as to why the club can’t pull off another masterstroke.
Wolves have been craving an out-and-out striker that has the ability to find the back of the net on a regular basis this season, with Raul Jimenez operating more as a provider. And, with the likes of Helder Costa, Ivan Cavaleiro, Adama Traore and Diogo Jota struggling to provide on a regular basis, there’s obviously room for improvement.
Of course, Nuno Espirito Santo could go out and splash Fosun’s money in the January transfer window, but it appears as if he has already found the man he’s been looking for.
Benny Ashley-Seal has become a key player for Rob Edwards’ under-23s and has a hugely impressive 11 goals in 12 appearances in all competitions, with 10 of his goals coming in seven Premier League 2 matches. And, he featured in the EFL Cup twice earlier on this season, so it may not be long until he breaks into the first-team permanently.
The youngster possesses pace and power, so he would fit right into Nuno Santo’s plans as Wolves look to make use of their pace on the counter-attack to cause the opposition problems.
Raul Jimenez has played a huge part in the current campaign and will continue to as the season progresses, but with the Ashley-Seal already showing that he can score an outrageous amount of goals in the youth ranks, perhaps Nuno Santo should be turning to him as the club’s next potential hero.
