Serie A expert Conor Clancy does not believe that Rafael Leao should move to Wolves despite links with the Premier League club this summer.
Wolves were first linked with an interest in the striker back in May, with the club looking to bolster their forward line amid doubts over the fitness of Raul Jimenez, who sustained a sickening head injury last term.
Leao is 22 and has been with the Serie A club since 2019, and he has gone on to make 73 appearances for the club.
Would Rafael Leao be a good signing for Wolves?
In that time, though, he has scored just 13 goals, enduring hit-and-miss periods during his time at the San Siro. He has also laid on nine assists.
Leao has a contract until 2024 and is valued at £22.5m by Transfermarkt, and Clancy has warned that he is better off staying where he is and continuing to improve than trying to make a big-money switch to England.
The editor in chief of Forza Italian Football said: “I’m not sure if Leao would be a hit anywhere at the moment. He is very hit and miss. I do really like him but I think he’s guilty of making the same odd mistakes.
“His decisions aren’t always the greatest and his finishing is not always the best. I think the best place for him now is to just stay by Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s side and let him take him on a little bit further because he has improved under Ibra.”
