Wolves moving for a free agent after the summer transfer window came to a close is ‘possible’, reliable journalist Steve Madeley reports.
The Lowdown: Good summer at Wolves
Wanderers had a positive summer overall, not only signing exciting figures such as Matheus Nunes and Boubacar Traore but perhaps most importantly keeping hold of Ruben Neves.
It may not have necessarily been a perfect window, with Conor Coady leaving for Everton and the squad still looking a touch light in attacking firepower, but Bruno Lage will surely be happy with the club’s efforts overall.
While the summer window has slammed shut, there is still the chance for teams to snap up players who are currently without a club, such as Ross Barkley.
The Latest: Madeley not ruling it out
Writing on Twitter, Madeley didn’t rule out the idea of Wolves signing a free agent, describing it as ‘possible’ but unlikely:
“Told there’s no more on the cards today. But anyone who is a free agent at 11pm can sign for a club outside the window. Don’t get the feeling they’re actively working on it but in theory it would still be possible.”
The Verdict: Feels unlikely
While it is a nice option to have, it would be a surprise if Wolves attempted to sign a free agent in the coming days, with their squad looking full of quality and depth.
Such moves can have an air of desperation about them when options are thin on the ground, but it only makes sense if an ideal target emerges from the crowd.
As Madeley alludes to, Wolves signing someone on a free cannot be ruled out but Lage has done enough business already this summer and Wanderers will hopefully go up a gear in the Premier League from this point on.
