Zivkovic beyond ideal for Wolves’ Premier League assault

Zivkovic beyond ideal for Wolves’ Premier League assault

It’s been quite a summer for Nuno Espirito Santo. After storming to the Championship title last season, Wolverhampton Wanderers have wasted no time this summer is adding some serious quality to their squad. 

The calibre of signings made by Wolves shows a signal of intent that they are not just in the Premier League merely to survive next season. Signings such as Ruben Vinagre and Rui Patricio are not the signings you would expect of a newly promoted side. Of all the promoted sides, Wolves certainly look the favourites to have a comfortable season next term.

The West Midlands outfit already look strong, but another quality addition could put them on the verge of doing something special in the coming season.

With that in mind, 22-year-old winger Andrija Zivkovic would be the perfect addition for Wolverhampton Wanderers. The winger, who is valued at £16.2m by Transfermarkt, is a hugely exciting talent.

After seriously impressing at a young age for Partizan, the Serbian made the switch to Benfica. He has already been capped eleven times for his country. The young winger has pace, technical ability and an excellent cross into the box. If Wolves could lure him to Molineux, he would only improve with regular Premier League football under his belt.

Defensively, the West Midlands outfit look very solid. Particularly with Portugal international Rui Patricio between the sticks commanding his area. Likewise, up top having players such as Leo Bonatini, Wolves look incredibly strong. However, the prospect of having Helder Costa on one wing, and Zivkovic on the other would strike fear into any Premier League defence, and would be an addition worth shelling out on.

Wolves already have a very strong squad going into next season, but they should drop everything now and go for one more high quality addition. Zivkovic could provide that extra piece of magic which is the difference between finishing mid-table, and being on the verge of challenging for a European place. With the signings the Molineux outfit have so far made, the sky is the limit in the coming season.
