Tim Spiers of The Athletic believes Wolves failed to address an outstanding issue in their squad last month.
Speaking on The Molineux View podcast, Spiers suggested that striker Raul Jimenez has a goalscoring burden on him, an issue that needed to be addressed but was not.
“I think Jimenez has continued scoring pretty regularly but, equally, the burden is still on him,” Spiers said. “That wasn’t necessarily rectified in January with a direct kind of backup that they were craving.”
Do Wolves need another striker?
It is certainly a fair point Spiers has made; Nuno Espirito Santo could have definitely done with a new first-team striker coming in last month to add more goals to Wolves’ attack. While Jimenez is currently getting the job done, scoring 11 goals in the Premier League this season, the team’s other attackers are not exactly scoring regularly in this moment of time.
Their next highest goalscorer, Adama Traore, has four goals, while Diogo Jota has netted on just three occasions — the same number of goals defender Matt Doherty has managed this term. Furthermore, Spiers’ point is probably a quite valid one, especially when you factor in the departure of Patrick Cutrone.
