In an exclusive interview with Transfer Tavern, Steve Bull, who made 561 appearances for Wolves, has claimed that if his former club signed Oli McBurnie from Sheffield United, it could be a smart signing and not a waste of money.
Should Wolves sign McBurnie?
Wolves may not be in a position to sign players immediately, as The Athletic have reported that Fosun International will not be offering as big a transfer budget as usual for Nuno Espirito Santo.
Speaking on why McBurnie would not be a waste of money for Wolves and what he could bring to the side, Bull told The Transfer Tavern:
“I wouldn’t say he would be a waste of money because he’s a decent striker who will score goals, and he might turn out to be a vital player that comes off the bench and scores.
“I think chairman and owners have got money coming out of their ears and they just seem to always find money from somewhere, so if they want to pay it then they’ll find money from somewhere and get him on board.”
The Transfer Window podcast also reported that Fosun International are also willing to listen to reasonable offers for Pedro Neto, Ruben Neves and Adama Traore as they look to sell before they buy this summer.
Since 2016, Fosun International have spent a total of £235 million on bringing permanent signings to Wolves which may have forced them to take a step back this summer.
