Premier League dream: Wolves would hold their own if they could secure these 3 signings

Wolves fans in the Transfer Tavern can’t wait for the new season to start as they return to the Premier League after a six-year absence.

Although some have forgotten they actually need to do some great business this summer to hold their own in arguably the world’s most competitive league.

Since being bought by Chinese owners in 2016 the club has spent £67m on transfers, and if they continue that spending this pre-season they have a greater chance than Cardiff or Fulham of staying up.

They already signed Benik Afobe from Bournemouth, Willy Boly of Porto, Benfica’s Raul Jimenez and World Cup-standout goalkeeper Rui Patricio, so who else would help the fight for survival?

Having said that, here’s a closer look at who would be ideal fits to come in and light Molineux up once more.

Jack Wilshere

It’s well documented Jack Wilshere is leaving Arsenal this summer, but who he signs for is yet to be decided.

Juventus have reportedly curbed their interest and a move to West Ham is increasingly unlikely, leaving Southampton, Sampdoria, AC Milan and Wolves in the mix for the English playmaker.

They have all reportedly tabled offers for the 26-year-old who is a free agent as of July 1, and if Javi Grecia can pull this one off, it would be massive for their Premier League pedigree.

Ahmed Musa

Ahmed Musa has looked direct and effective for Nigeria in the World Cup and it could be exactly what Wolves need on the counter attack.

The Midlands’ club, Marseille and Galatasaray are all said to be interested in the Leicester wideman who spent last season on loan at CSKA Moscow.

His agent told radio station Radyospor he has already talked with Galatasaray And the pull of Champions League football may see him head to Turkey, but what’s the harm in testing the waters?

Alfie Mawson

Having played every game for relegated Swansea last season, Alfie Mawson could provide that top-flight experience Wolves so desperately need.

They have been linked with Lazio’s Wallace but there are fears he won’t adapt to the physicality of the country quick enough, so Mawson seems the best fit.

Swansea have already rejected a bid from West Ham for 24-year-old, according to the BBC, so Wolves need to up their interest before he signs a deal elsewhere.
