Wolves are reportedly expected to make a bid to sign Matthew Hoppe in the summer transfer window.
The Lowdown: Cutrone future unclear
According to The Express & Star, Patrick Cutrone has returned to Molineux for pre-season training and hopes to have his future sorted out soon.
With his future in the balance, the Midlands club may be eyeing a move for a new striker to give cover for Raul Jimenez, with Kaio Jorge recently being linked with a move to the Black Country.
The Latest: Hoppe bid expected
As per 90min, Wolves, Tottenham, Southampton and Newcastle are all expected to reach out to Schalke 04 in the coming days with bids to sign Hoppe.
There is optimism that he can be sold for the right price, so it is certainly one to keep an eye on if you are a Wolves fan.
The Verdict: Sign
Described as a player with ‘real quality’ by Schalke manager Dimitrios Grammozis back in March, Hoppe endured a difficult 2020/21 season as the Gelsenkirchen club found themselves relegated from the Bundesliga.
Nonetheless, he still managed to score six goals and supply one assist in 22 top-flight games (Transfermarkt), and clearly impressed his boss with his individual performances.
Should Wolves sign Hoppe?
At just 20 years of age, Hoppe is a player who Bruno Lage could develop into a top striker for years to come if Wolves can win the race for his signature.
