A Zielinski-Neves partnership would have Wolves challenging for Europa League football

Wolves fans can’t wait for the season to begin to see all their new signings in action.

After winning the Championship title last season, Wolves have wasted no time in strengthening their squad ahead of their first Premier League campaign since 2012. Nuno Espirito Santo has splashed £40m already in the transfer window to ensure his side avoid relegation next season.

Diogo Jota, Willy Bolly and Leo Bonatini all completed permanent moves to Molineux while Raul Jimenez and Rui Patricio both moved from Liga NOS. If Wolves are to survive, they need to continue their spending and buy a new playmaker. Signing a maestro to partner Ruben Neves in midfield would boost their hopes of avoiding the drop.

An ideal signing could be Napoli midfielder – Piotr Zielinski. Valued at £28.8m by Transfermarkt, the Polish international was linked with Liverpool in the past, but the move failed to materialise. Instead, he signed for Napoli and was a key player during their title challenge last season.

The 24-year-old made 36 appearances in the Serie A, scoring four and assisting two. The former Udinese man is an excellent passer of the ball, completing 88% in the Serie A last season. His Polish team-mates recognise his immense talent, and Kamil Grosicki labelled him ‘the biggest talent in Poland’.

Following Maurizio Sarri’s departure to Chelsea, Zielinski could follow him through the exit door. Wolves should be first of the queue to bring him to England.
