Wolves: Luke Hatfield talks up potential Donny van de Beek signing -Wolves Transfer Rumours

Manchester United midfielder Donny van de Beek would be an exciting signing for Wolves, according to journalist Luke Hatfield.

The Lowdown: Wolves linked with Van de Beek move

Bruno Lage is reportedly interested in making a move for the Dutchman, with a potential January transfer having been mooted.

Van de Beek is experiencing a hugely forgettable spell at United, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer seemingly not considering him an important player in any way.

The 24-year-old has appeared for just 15 minutes of Premier League action so far this season despite United’s struggles and he may be keen for a new challenge, having recently changed his agent with an apparent eye to engineering a move away from Old Trafford.

The Latest: Hatfield keen on Wolves signing Van de Beek

Speaking to GIVEMESPORT about Wolves’ potential move for Van de Beek, The Express & Star‘s Hatfield saw plenty of positives behind it, saying:

“He would offer Lage something he doesn’t have in Wolves’ midfield right now.

“He would offer something different. Joao Moutinho is not getting any younger. Ruben Neves obviously put in a really good performance against Everton, but we’ve got to see that consistently from him.

“The likes of Leander Dendoncker and Romain Saiss, who can play there, are not going to be quite as forward thinking so he would offer something different, something more dynamic.”

The Verdict: Do it, Wolves

While Van de Beek’s current struggles may make a switch to Molineux unappealing from a fans’ perspective, he is an excellent footballer who simply isn’t being given a chance at Old Trafford.

This is a player who has already won 19 caps for the Netherlands, scoring three times, and was a key part of an Ajax side who came close to reaching the Champions League final back in 2018/19.

Also, Hatfield’s point about the Dutchman offering more attacking thrust from midfield is a fair one, as the 24-year-old contributed to 75 goals in 175 games during his time at Ajax. Between them, Dendoncker and Saiss have a grand total of 30 goal contributions from a combined 315 Wolves appearances.

At Molineux, Van de Beek would likely come in as a regular starter and his guile in the middle of the park and, as Hatfield says, he could help to give Lage’s side an extra attacking dimension.
