Nuno should look to French minnows for Wolves’ final piece in promotion jigsaw

Wolverhampton Wanderers are running away with the Sky Bet Championship title this season, with boss Nuno Espirito Santo performing sensationally following his summer appointment.

The Portuguese boss worked well in the summer transfer market, bringing in the likes of Ruben Neves, Diogo Jota and Leo Bonatini, players with exceptional talent with the potential to become real stars of the European game. Fans here in The Transfer Tavern often sing their beloved boss’ name long into the night, and the manager will go down in legend if he completes the job this season and leads the Black Country outfit to a top flight return. Our landlord caught up with fans over a quick pint to chat transfer, with many feeling that the only thing missing from this squad was an additional striker.

Leo Bonatini has performed exceptionally, scoring twelve goals and contributing a further five assists, but should the player face a spell on the sidelines, Santo certainly lacks depth in the position. Another new face is needed, and with Santo always willing to source talent from the continent, our landlord cannot help but suggest a move for one of the most promising talents on the continent. 21-year-old forward Umut Bozok has been tearing the French second-tier alight, and already has fifteen league goals for Nimes.

The Turkish U21 international only joined the club in the summer after scoring goals for fun for Consolat in the French lower leagues, but already looks set to play at a higher level in the near future. Looking to be a natural at finding the back of the net, Bozok looks destined for a full international call-up in the near future, and a big move to a top European club. Santo must convince the player this month that his future lies at Molineux.

Wolves fans, let us know your thoughts!
