Wolves will definitely look to sign a replacement for outgoing striker Fabio Silva in the summer transfer window, according to reliable journalist Steve Madeley.
The Lowdown: Silva departs on loan
The 20-year-old has undoubtedly been a disappointment for Wanderers to date, scoring just four goals in 62 appearances since his big-money arrival from Porto in 2020.
Silva still has time on his side to develop though and has been sent out on loan to Belgian side Anderlecht for the 2022/23 season, as he looks to find some form and confidence before returning to Wolves.
While the youngster was not a key starter for Bruno Lage’s side, his exit does leave a hole in terms of squad depth, highlighting the need for a new attacker to come in this summer.
The Latest: Madeley expects new signing
“Only that I’m sure there will be one (a replacement), so no worries about that. But who or when is less certain.”
The Verdict: Needed
Incredibly, Raul Jimenez and Daniel Podence were Wanderers’ joint-top goalscorers with just six apiece, further highlighting their lack of threat in the final third.
At least one new striker needs to be signed after Silva’s temporary exit but it could even be that two make sense, in order for Lage to have enough ammunition at his disposal this season.
