Wolves have made an impressive start to life in the Premier League after lifting the Championship title last year.
Nuno Espirito Santo has guided his side to two wins and two draws from their opening five fixtures in the Premier League including a draw against reigning champions Manchester City. The Portuguese strengthened his squad significantly during the summer transfer window, and the former Porto boss will be glad to see his new arrivals settle in quickly at Molineux. Wolves are definitely on course to secure survival in England’s top division.
Despite their extravagant spending in the summer, Wolves should still be keeping tabs on potential January recruits. One man who could be on the move is Chelsea defender – Gary Cahill. Valued at £13.5m by Transfermarkt, the England international has been a key player at Stamford Bridge since joining from Bolton Wanderers but has fallen down the pecking order under Maurizio Sarri.
Cahill is yet to feature under the new Italian manager, and reports suggest he will consider a January exit in search of first-team football. Aston Villa have expressed an interest in the defender, but Wolves could offer him the chance to stay in the Premier League. Remaining in the division could help Cahill regain his place in Gareth Southgate’s England side.
The 32-year-old is out of contract next summer meaning Wolves could grab themselves a bargain. Though Cahill is approaching the end of his career, he still has many years left at the top level. With over 340 appearances in the Premier League and over 30 in the Champions League, his vast experience could be crucial in helping Wolves secure survival. This one should be a no-brainer.
