Wolves: Fresh Renato Sanches claim emerges

Wolves: Fresh Renato Sanches claim emerges -Premier League

Wolves are still eyeing up a potential move for Renato Sanches in the January transfer window, according to journalist Alex Crook.

The Lowdown: Sanches links persist

The 24-year-old spent the summer being linked with a transfer to Wolves, while those stories have persisted in the early months of this season.

Sanches has stayed put at Lille for the time being, however, where he has only managed eight Ligue 1 starts so far this season, as injuries have again hampered him.

It could be that the 32-time capped Portugal international moves on in January after an up and down campaign in France and it appears as though Wolves are eyeing up a move.

The Latest: Fresh rumour emerges

According to Crook on talkSPORT [via Molineux News], Wolves are looking “quite closely” at signing Sanches in the imminent transfer window, as Bruno Lage looks to bolster his midfield.

The Lille man’s current deal expires in the summer of 2023, so the Ligue 1 champions could be willing to sell him while they can still receive a decent fee.

The Verdict: Worth a punt?

There is no denying Sanches’ quality as a footballer, with former Arsenal and Everton striker Kevin Campbell describing him as ‘incredible’ earlier this year.

The idea of him in a Wolves shirt is hugely exciting – he famously won the prestigious European Golden Boy award back in 2016 and starred at Euro 2020 for Portugal – but injuries are the one thing holding him back.

Lage would have to accept that signing him would involve a clear risk element, with Sanches never starting 20 league matches in a season in his career. If a player of that calibre is potentially available, however, it is worth the gamble.
