Wolves: Renato Sanches talks stall -Wolves Transfer Rumours

Wolverhampton Wanderers have hit a roadblock in their pursuit of Lille midfielder Renato Sanches, according to The Athletic’s David Ornstein

The lowdown

On Monday night, talkSPORT’s Alex Crook broke the story that Sanches was ‘set’ to join Wolves on loan.

Sanches made 23 Ligue 1 appearances last season as Lille beat Paris-Saint Germain to the French title.

He subsequently earned a call-up the Portugal squad for the European Championships and started two matches for Fernando Santos’ side, who bowed out in the Round of 16.

Sanches has previously spent time on loan in the Premier League, having temporarily joined Swansea City from Bayern Munich in 2017/18.

The latest

Speaking on The Athletic’s Transfer Deadline Day Stream on Tuesday morning, Ornstein said Wolves are ‘working on a deal’ but any move is ‘currently blocked’.

That’s because there’s a ‘disagreement’ on terms between the two clubs.

Ornstein suggested that the chances of the move ultimately going through are now ‘being rated at 50/50’.

The verdict

Many Wolves fans may be desperate for this deal to go through. Sanches showcased his class to the watching football world at the Euros, gliding through challenges with ease. He could potentially take Wolves up a level.

But one undeniable worry is the 24-year-old’s injury record. In fact, he’s even sidelined at the moment after sustaining a meniscal injury (via Transfermarkt). The move would be a coup, but also a gamble at the same time.
