The Portugese newspaper Correio da Manhã seems pretty convinced that Nunes will sign for Wolves this summer, even running a piece on his proposed replacement at Sporting. They claim that the player, himself, was hoping for a 'bigger club' as he wants to win stuff. Trouble is none of the 'big clubs' linked are making a move for him, so this could drag on a bit longer.


1.) 30 Jun 2022 18:57:37
Um the problem is Long that is exactly the sort of nonsense story that agents put out to try and generate more interest, it's a way of letting bigger clubs know if ya don't come in for him he's off! I that's not the case cause out of all the CMs we've been tied to he is probs the best! Would be very happy if we do get him ?

2.) 30 Jun 2022 19:53:30
Yes it does seem that we're being used as a stalking horse in some of these negotiations.



29 Jun 2022 07:27:37
Robert Renan a 19 yr old CH from Corinthians. Very highly rated, agent in England talking to us and City At £10M this looks more like Wolves to me and I would say the best option for him as we would be a more likely route to first team Premier League football.


1.) 29 Jun 2022 09:29:51
A nineteen year old! Doesn’t look like the ready made Premiere League player we need to strengthen the team.

On any objective view we lack management with sufficient football experience to run a successful recruitment program.

2.) 29 Jun 2022 09:42:45
This shows that Sellers is only capable of dealing with the youth players and has not got the ability to do. deals with quality players we need

3.) 29 Jun 2022 10:03:50
Interesting it's only click bait but there's an article saying Mendes is seeking compo for Palinha as his move to Fulham has been organised by another agent and Uncle Jorge had him lined up for Wolves! We need to stop relying on Uncle Jorge and just get our own DoF! ?



26 Jun 2022 14:08:18
Wolves allegedly after winger Keane Lewis-Potter in the face of the usual competition.
West Ham allegedly favourites but Hull will sell him to the club that will pay their £20M asking price. From what I've seen of him, he's a very impressive young footballer.


1.) 27 Jun 2022 00:30:58
More so than MGW?

Sorry but do we also need a winger when we have so many up front?

I don't think we are in for him. I think it's his agent talking to journos to make it seem like there is a lot.

We can't really afford to take gambles that cost so much when we are in dire need of more first team players.

We wouldn't pay £20m for Palinha so why would we for a championship player? And sorry but that's all he is until he proves otherwise.

2.) 27 Jun 2022 17:45:11
Ignore the gossip and rumours, there is a big cost cutting exercise going on, hence the departures from the club. It is all about cutting the wage bill. There will be no big signings, quality players want top wages so out of our reach. If a good enough offer comes in for any of the squad I think you will find they will be sold. Hope I am wrong but next season could be hard going.



22 Jun 2022 13:38:48
Interesting story today. Apparently
Enzo Fernandez may now be set for a quick move as his release clause rises from £17M to £21.5 million next month.
He'd rather leave now rather than risk missing out on the move due to a higher release clause. Single source so far so may be BS.


1.) 22 Jun 2022 15:40:14
I've been reading today he wants to stop in SA and doesn't want a move

2.) 22 Jun 2022 16:12:56
I've read that as well Man O War. One says what I posted above saying Benfica are out the deal, can't afford to pay more in 6 months. Another saying Wolves won't wait but Benfica will sign him and leave him in Argentina for 6 months to get him cheaper. Which one is BS?

3.) 22 Jun 2022 18:57:49
Enzo has gone to benfica today another target same story we show intrest then goes now where paulinha another read 18 million would secure his signiture doesn't take a rocket scientist to work it out our recruitment is diabolicle we will waste time trying to secure players that don't want to come then the deal won't happen paulinha is willing to come no brainer I agree with some on here he's a a lot like dedonker but he's a upgrade on donk get him in n sell donk .

4.) 22 Jun 2022 20:49:26
So Radiohead you are taking the stories on newsnoww as fact then? Because on that basis we have already signed about 15 players already.
So when sportsmole or transfer tavern claimed we had struck a deal with Paulinha, Nunes, Seferovic, Guedes and several others you did not come on here stating we had signed them!
So why do you and several other only take these stories as fact when it’s a possible negative story?
I don’t get it

5.) 22 Jun 2022 21:50:56
Because they’re on a wind up.

Have you not noticed the recent trolls trick? said troll will get a post from here (tends to be around 15-30 mins old) repeat the same rumour and add a bit of hype to try and spice it up. The trick is trying to sew the seeds of discourse a la “Fosun have lost interest” so when a player doesn’t sign it’s to annoy us in here. Bit sad, but that’s the world we live in.

6.) 22 Jun 2022 22:06:55
Palhinha and Nunes would be good signings for and 57m IMO.
Enzo looks like good value as well. Bruno looks like he wants a few attacking midfield options rather than one.
It's just the balancing the books that don't make much sense at the minute.
Could be a big clear out to bring better players to Lages style.
The links to the Burnley CB is a home grown player.
Does that mean Coady or MGW are on there way?
Ki Hoever, Traore, Boly, Ait Nouri on there way?
Or maybe Semedo will go as we could play Jonny Rwb and Ait Nouri lwb.

7.) 23 Jun 2022 07:12:01
Good post Madman ?

Tommo in my experiences wolves and in life general too many people only have a voice to mock put down be negative and where we are with our club at present it's an open playing field for criticism and negativity.
Everyone has a choice not to read not comment and don't bother all together.
A shame really but just got accept how people are.



02 Jun 2022 07:17:27
Ben Brereton Diaz from Blackburn being looked at apparently.
23 goals last season in the Championship, several clubs in the mix.


1.) 02 Jun 2022 08:57:40
Worth a shout, missed a trick with Ivan Toney and just look at Ollie Watkins (classic example would be Vardy)

There's been some very interesting analysis and observations below concerning Fosun's 'issues' and how it may impact on Wolves.
Given all of that, Jeff Shi did say recently that they were planning to float Wolves on the stock market within 3-5 years. Presumably, that would mean that Wolves would need to be both profitable, without unreasonable debt and doing well in the Premier League for that to happen?


1.) 23 Jun 2022 12:20:15
I think you must be right LongmyndWolf. Any company on the Stock market has to be sound and successful to make money. It's a glorified betting shop really and a risk. Still, Jeff also said we would be in Europe soon and that plan has been delayed. I would treat anything the present management say as an aspiration rather than a promise.

2.) 23 Jun 2022 12:41:17
I think your final sentence sums it up perfectly goggs.
Ground development still on hold and more failed transfer attempts than you can shake a stick at should teach us that much.

3.) 23 Jun 2022 17:28:11
Looks like we're all gong and no dinner,puzzling,maybe another debacle of transfer speculation,
Hope not coyw

4.) 23 Jun 2022 17:29:31
We're clearly no longer competitive when it comes to bidding for players and yet we spend 35 mil on fabio at a time when no other club in the world would have spent that much on him. They're not as astute as they'd have us believe

5.) 23 Jun 2022 19:26:23
Personally, I'm not going to write Silva off yet Sharesum, he's still only 19 and I expect him to shine next season. If I'm wrong, I'm wrong but let's wait and see. It probably tells us how reliant we are on Jorges Mendes, a relationship which cuts both ways.
Wolves may yet surprise us in the transfer market, let's hope so as so far in this window we aren't cutting it.

6.) 23 Jun 2022 20:45:48
If you Google fosun money out of china you will find very interesting Reuters articles (although not new) about Fosun, the relationship with Mendes and how the ultimate aim is to take a stake in young players. We ain't going to be signing experienced players any time soon I would say.

7.) 24 Jun 2022 00:19:27
Ard- but how? Third party ownership isn't allowed so surely all they can ever do is be an agency? So how ever its cut a player will always have a fixed term contract with Gestfute (which they can usually break fairly easily). Look Mendes knows his business so I'm not saying I know better, but it would be nice to think we are more to the powers that be than a glorified shop window?!

8.) 24 Jun 2022 09:24:22
Bully I don't know, I suspect that the original plans haven't come to fruition but taking stakes in clubs such as ourselves and Grasshoppers could be put in place but everything else that was part of the plan has been blown apart by Fifa, Covid and Chinese politics. Just my thoughts.



14 Jun 2022 14:28:03
Are we actually ever going to sign Joao Palhinha!
Everyday, everything you read is 'how it's almost there' or Wolves are 'edging' closer. This has been going on for 2 weeks now.
It's 20M euros for god's sake, JUST SIGN HIM UP. I see even Fulham have 'entered the race' with Wolves, what race? is this a done deal or not?


1.) 14 Jun 2022 15:54:17
Surely the fact that he's been with the Portuguese squad for the last fortnight will have resulted in delays in him signing (whether that's for us or anyone else)?

2.) 14 Jun 2022 16:03:58
As usual Wolves are dragging their feet, perhaps waiting for the yellow stickers.

3.) 14 Jun 2022 16:41:17
There's not a lot going on anywhere 'definitely' at the mo, everybody seem to be 'weighing up offers'. Man city,man U, Liverpool all seem to be waiting to off load so they can spend and that may have a bearing on us regarding any potential selling of neves and acquisition of replacement. Traore seems to have been forgotten in recent days, is anyone still interested at a fair price?

4.) 14 Jun 2022 17:12:59
He’s been with the national team . Paulinha and Seferovic will both sign next week.
The transfer window opened last week so chill out everyone. Why so many people are so quick to be negative is beyond me.

5.) 14 Jun 2022 17:59:52
Apparently Palhinha has headed off for a well deserved holiday so if Mr Neves can oblige and sort out his new club shortly, we can start signing some players ?

6.) 14 Jun 2022 19:35:14
Liverpool have just signed Darwin Nunez for £85M. Villa have signed several with more on the way, there's plenty going on.
It's not being negative Tommo it's actually the opposite, get the business done early to get players settled in and ready from the 'get go'.
My question was if this is such a 'done deal' why do other clubs feel that they can join the race, so to speak.



10 Jun 2022 06:46:53
If Barcelona won't part with Gonzales, as reported, does that mean Neves will finish up moving to another Premier side.
With Traore looking on course to follow Jota and do just that, will the prospect of playing against three former fans favourite be too much to bear?


1.) 10 Jun 2022 07:18:18
There’s a strong possibility that could happen Longmynd with Man United the most likely place. There’s lots of talk about Arsenal but they seem to have other targets.
I don’t think the Barcelona situation is closed and if they offered Nico Gonzalez for a season along with say 45m euros then might that work for the club to bring in their targets? Also where are we going with the Donck, will we move him on and go for a brand new midfield group?

2.) 10 Jun 2022 09:08:34
I'm actually really surprised Man City haven't been linked with Neves at any point in the last few weeks. Even with all the lazy journalism and click bait we see. They are supposedly looking to replace Fernandinho and Neves has great stats in the Premier League to play that role. He can also play the style of football Man City play and they can afford him and guarantee him Champions League football and trophies.

I actually hope he doesn't go to Barcelona as I've heard too many stories in recent years of them being late paying transfer fees and in some cases not paying them at all.

{Ed002's Note - Manchester City have identified other options to replace Fernandinho and are actively pushing for one of them.}

3.) 10 Jun 2022 09:42:24
Hope you're right NES. For me Neves going abroad softens the blow of him leaving somewhat.
I'm not sure Barcelona can muster £45M, it'll take some time before they recover from the ludicrous spending of the previous administration. Plus if recent reports are to be believed they have said no to selling Gonzales so it would have to be a serious offer to change that, even if that's just a negotiating ploy

4.) 10 Jun 2022 16:36:22
He may stay yet! I will keep my fingers crossed, 70m is a big price, and not too many can afford that, Neves wants Champions league, so It s small pool, him and Pinhalia would be a great midfield.

5.) 10 Jun 2022 18:32:40
Further rumour that Juventus are trying to sell McKennie to Spurs to finance a bid for the Donck.



09 Jun 2022 11:30:03
Another cracking goal at international level from a Wolves player.
A strike from distance into the bottom corner by Dendoncker as Belgium thrash Poland 6-1. His first ever international goal, apparently.


1.) 09 Jun 2022 15:05:31
See neves modelling the new shirt, will this be the only time we see him in it? I hope not.



06 Jun 2022 17:34:41
I see Whang Hee-chan just scored a screamer for S Korea against Chile.
Let's have a few of those here next season please.


1.) 06 Jun 2022 18:13:30
Yes,a real screamer,so the ability is there we just need to see more of it next season.

2.) 06 Jun 2022 20:06:32
It was such a weird one with him, cause in the first two months he looked an absolute steal (remember the reports at the time that other 'bigger' clubs were looking to hijack the deal) but then he just seemed stopped grafting! Maybe it was just the playing for a contract and when he new that was happening but who knows? When he brings his grafting game he can be a handful but without it he has been a bit lost. Like you say let's hope he comes back refreshed and ready to shine ?

3.) 06 Jun 2022 21:46:57
Billy's I think he got caught up in the goal scoring malaise of last season. It affected everyone really. Still let's hope a bit of fresh blood changes that.

4.) 06 Jun 2022 22:35:57
Sorry Bullys, typo.

5.) 07 Jun 2022 14:27:53
Haha, I probs Long ?

6.) 07 Jun 2022 21:49:43
Hwang is a good player - his drop off in form was after an injury and I suspect he was back playing before he was fully fit/match sharp and then lost some confidence (he is very much a confidence player as shown by his form at Salzburg).

7.) 08 Jun 2022 00:03:42
Nb- DOH that was suppose to say no probs! See it happens to the best of us ??

It's not ungrateful Wolfthistle, there's a natural end to every players ability to maintain their game past a certain age.
Like you, but with regret, I'd prefer new blood in this window as to go again with him may be the wrong decision and salary wise, a pricey one.
Not because I have any issues with Mouts he's been amazing for Wolves but more because it would signal the start of a much needed progressive rebuild.
But at the end of the day if Lage is happy, then who are we to argue?

Apparently he is happy to take a 1000 percent pay drop and has promised Neves that he will not upset the dressing room.
More chance of being sh*t on by a pterodactyl.

I accept that he wanted game time but there must be a reason why MGW was loaned out after spending most of the previous season on the bench, Some have mentioned an attitude problem but has he really proved himself to be Premier League level?
On paper he should be and some might feel that he's never really been given the chance with too few starts. Not sure myself, thoughts?

I'd take him for another year or two, great player, not sure that he's 'free' though Bewdley, I read £16M.

I hope we"re wrong Bullys but that all seems very Wolves to me. I would rather see Nunes than Mouts as it means we are building for the future but deep down I think we know he isn't coming. It might mean Palhinha still happens given recent reports but there's one thing I've come to realise with Wolves transfers of late. Expect nothing and you won't be disappointed.

I don't think Semedo will go anywhere Greyleg as the players that left were either surplus to requirements, loaned out or like Saiss, wanted longer contracts. Two things concern me, firstly, Moutinho re-signing could mean no Nunes and Wolves management 'quietly feel' that Jimenez will return to form, so potentially no new striker either.
Hopefully we will see several new faces to freshen things up and give Lage options because as things stand, he's actually worse off.
