Wolves are reportedly in a race with some other clubs in the Premier League to sign Borna Barisic in the summer transfer window.
The Lowdown: Wolves need a left-back
Given that Rayan Ait-Nouri was only on loan at the Midlands club in the 2020/21 season, it is not guaranteed that they will be able to sign him on a permanent deal.
Therefore, the Molineux faithful must think about bringing in a new starting left-back to mark the new era under Bruno Lage.
The Latest: Wolves eye Barisic
As per Football Insider, the Wanderers, as well as Arsenal and Aston Villa, are eyeing a move for Barisic this summer.
A recruitment source has told the news outlet that WWFC talent spotters are set to watch the Rangers ace play at Euro 2020 for Croatia, and if he performs well, they may look to put in a bid for him.
The Verdict: Sign him
Assuming that Wolves are not able to sign Ait-Nouri permanently, then they must swoop for Barisic and beat their rivals in the top flight to his signature.
His international teammate Josip Brekalo recently hailed him as an ‘excellent’ and ‘high quality’ player (Glasgow Live), and at 28, he is still at a good age to make the step up from the Scottish Premiership.
Should Wolves sign Barisic?
Barisic was very important for the Gers both in their Scottish Premiership title win and in general throughout the last campaign, playing in no fewer than 50 games in total in all competitions, scoring five goals and providing a further 14 assists (Transfermarkt).
Signing a player with such attacking numbers from full-back would certainly be a smart piece of business from WWFC.
