Wolves are reportedly eyeing up the possibility of bringing in Rennes manager Bruno Genesio this summer.
The Lowdown: Genesio impressing at Rennes
The 55-year-old has been in charge of the Ligue 1 side since arriving last year, having previously enjoyed stints with the likes of Lyon and Beijing Guoan.
Genesio’s impact at Rennes has been immediate, inspiring them to third place in the table currently and within one point of second-place Marseille, all with a net spend across the summer and January transfer windows of just £30m.
Now, a shock update has emerged regarding his future, with Wolves part of the story.
The Latest: Wolves linked with surprise move
He is believed to be happy where he is currently, but the very fact that Fosun and co. are even interested is a shock considering Bruno Lage’s season so far.
The Verdict: Why sack Lage?
While Genesio deserves undoubted credit for the job he is doing at Rennes, there is surely no need to get rid of Lage at this point in his Wolves career.
The Portuguese is enjoying an excellent first season at Molineux, guiding his side into the European places and even looking like mounting a genuine top-four challenge at one point.
It would be extremely harsh to move on from Lage so quickly, and frankly, it is extremely difficult to see it happening in the summer. If it did, Wolves could regret it, with their current boss the right man for the job.
