Wolves: Lage hints centre-back could still be signed

Wolves: Lage hints centre-back could still be signed -Wolves News

Wolves could still sign an experienced centre-back from the free agent market in order to boost Bruno Lage’s defensive options, journalist Steve Madeley reports.

The Lowdown: Window slams shut

Wanderers have enjoyed a good summer in the transfer market, bringing in quality additions such as Nathan Collins and Matheus Nunes, as well as retaining the services of Ruben Neves.

The window is now officially shut after deadline day ended on Thursday but free agents can continue to be signed – those without a team at present.

A fresh update suggests that Wolves’ business may not be done, in that respect.

The Latest: Free agent centre-back incoming?

Taking to Twitter, Madeley shared comments from Lage revealing he still wants to bring in an experienced central defender to make up for the loss of Willy Boly:

“Lage reiterates his opinion that there’s “too big a gap” between Collins/Kilman and Toti/Mosquera. Says he’d still like an experienced man to replace Boly and bridge that gap. Would obviously have to be a free agent now.”

The Verdict: Makes perfect sense

This would be a shrewd decision by Wolves, and while there can be a risk element in signing a free agent – lack of match fitness being the big issue – it would improve their squad depth.

The exits of Boly, Conor Coady and Romain Saiss have left Wanderers looking a little light in that area, so acquiring the services of a player willing to play a squad role makes perfect sense – the likes of Jason Denayer and Dan-Axel Zagadou are on the market.

It remains to be seen if Lage will get a signing done, but considering Wolves’ defence is arguably seen as their strongest area of the pitch, it would be a crying shame if it suddenly became a weakness.
