Wolves almost completed the unlikeliest of comebacks against Tottenham Hotspur at the weekend.
The Championship winners were three goals down after Erik Lamela, Lucas Moura and Harry Kane gave Mauricio Pochettino’s men a comfortable advantage. However, some dodgy defending from Juan Foyth allowed Wolves to score two penalties – converted by Ruben Neves and Raul Jimenez. Their efforts were in vain as Spurs held on to secure all three points at Molineux.
Nuno Espirito Santo will be pleased despite the defeat with Wolves showing excellent heart to try and get back into the game. Once again, the Midlands club lacked a true goal scorer to turn the tide in their favour. Reports suggest the Portuguese will aim to bring a new striker to the club when the window reopens in January.
One man who should be on his shortlist is Frankfurt striker – Sebastian Haller. Valued at £13.5m by Transfermarkt, the 24-year-old has developed into a crucial player for the Bundesliga side since joining from Utrecht last summer. Haller hit nine goals in his debut season in Germany but has reached new heights during the new campaign.
The Frenchman has made a blistering start to the season, netting seven goals in just eight Bundesliga starts – highlighting the threat he poses in the attack. As well as finding the back of the net, Haller has also scooped five assists for his team-mates, showing he is capable of leading the line and bringing others into the game. Haller’s expert finishing and hold up play makes him the ideal January signing for Wolves.
A strong and powerful forward – Haller would have no issues adapting to the physicality of the Premier League. His arrival would finally give Nuno the quality striker he has been searching for.
