Wolves have been given fresh hope in their quest to sign Roma and Guinea midfielder Amadou Diawara, according to a new report.
The Lowdown: Wolves linked with Diawara move
Bruno Lage was linked with bringing in the 24-year-old during the summer transfer window, seeing him as someone who could bolster his options in the middle of the park.
Instead, Diawara ended up staying put at Roma, but he has only appeared in Serie A for seven minutes so far this season, with Jose Mourinho not seeing him as a key pat of his plans.
Who should Wolves sign?
The Latest: Signing could still happen
That comes off the back of the Italian side’s humiliating 6-1 defeat to Bodo/Glimt in the Europa League on Thursday, with the 12-cap Guinea midfielder described as ‘largely insufficient’ in the game.
The Verdict: Great addition
Diawara could be an ideal signing for Wolves in January, with his expertise in front of the defence something that could add more steel to the side.
He averaged 1.4 tackles and 2.3 interceptions per game in last season’s Europa League, racking up 64 successful tackles across the campaign, and he could add a little more dynamism than the likes of Ruben Neves and Joao Moutinho.
At 24 years of age perhaps he just needs a fresh start, and could turn out to be a perfect long-term successor to Moutinho.
