Wolves: Lopetegui has ‘told the board’ what he wants in January

Wolves: Lopetegui has ‘told the board’ what he wants in January -Follow up

Wolverhampton Wanderers manager Julen Lopetegui will have ‘told the board’ what he wants in January, according to Sky Sports reporter Dharmesh Sheth.

The Lowdown: Reinforcements required

The Premier League outfit spent just under £120m on new additions in the summer, but the fact that they are rock bottom of the table proves that further reinforcements are still required.

The Spaniard was appointed at Molineux earlier this month and during an interview with the press, admitted that the winter market will present him with an opportunity to start bringing in some of his own players with the backing of Fosun.

The Latest: Sheth’s comments

Speaking to GiveMeSport, Sheth claimed that Wolves will already be aware of Lopetegui’s transfer ambitions heading into the New Year. He said:

“I’m sure he would have told the board, ‘I need one or two players who I know, who I can bring in, who I’ve worked with before potentially and who know my methods and can hit the ground running.’”

The Verdict: Attacking priorities

Diego Costa hasn’t been able to make the impact he would have hoped since his summer arrival, and it’s pretty clear that the attacking areas of the pitch are where the club need to improve.

The Old Gold have only managed to net eight goals in their opening 15 games this season, making them the lowest-scoring team in the whole division.

Raul Jimenez and Sasa Kalajdzic have both been out of action through injury so it’ll be a boost to get them back in time, though the frontline department will still need bolstering in January.
