The lowdown: Career so far
Despite remaining part of the plans in Rome in 2021/22, Shomurodov is seemingly up for grabs this summer and Wolves could be set to benefit from the availability…
The latest: ‘Made progress’
It’s claimed that Bologna are also keen on Shomurodov, whilst there is also a ‘call from abroad’ with the Old Gold understood to have enquired about the Uzbek hitman.
The report also states that Roma are open to ‘either’ a loan exit with an option to buy or an immediate permanent sale of the man hailed for his ‘superb’ dribbling and assist for a Gianluca Scamacca strike back in November 2020.
The lowdown: Striker essential
Capable of playing across the frontline and in deeper roles, Mourinho predominantly utilised Shomurodov as an out-and-out centre-forward last season, yielding five goals and six assists in 40 appearances across all competitions from his 6 foot 3 hitman.
Sharing a close stylistic likeness to such renowned attackers as Luis Muriel, Edin Dzeko and ex-Wanderers favourite turned Liverpool sensation Diogo Jota (Fbref), Shomurodov would appear to be a smart choice for Lage in order to add much-needed strength to the forward options.
Valued at £7.2million and under contract until 2026 (Transfermarkt), this would be a wholly affordable venture of the Molineux hierarchy and as such, one Jeff Shi should be pushing to make happen as soon as possible.
