The Lowdown: Reinforcements needed
The Spaniard was appointed as Bruno Lage’s successor at Molineux earlier this month and he recently admitted that he will be given the opportunity to get some of his own players in the building during the winter market.
The Latest: Sheth’s comments
Asked by GiveMeSport whether Wolves are likely to have already held internal discussions with Lopetegui heading into 2023, Sheth said:
“I do think so. I do think so. He must have had talks with Wolves that would have involved some sort of reassurance that in the next couple of transfer windows he would be backed.
“Because look, he’s joining a club that is bottom of the Premier League when they resume after the World Cup, and so he is going to need potentially reinforcements, even though they spent in excess of £100 million in the last transfer window.”
The Verdict: Attacking priorities
Wolves have only scored eight goals this season which is lower than any other team in the division, so their transfer priority has to lie in the attacking department.
Diego Costa hasn’t made the impact that supporters would have hoped, whilst Raul Jimenez and summer signing Sasa Kalajdzic have both been on the sidelines with injuries.
If the Old Gold don’t want to face relegation come the end of the campaign, a new striker is essential in the New Year.
