I read of interest Jack Clarke from Sunderland was mentioned. Being a Wolves supporter from North East I watch a lot of Sunderland matches and although impressive against run of the mill Championship Teams he had an absolute "mare" against the Toon last weekend (that's why he's where he is)

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Jan 2024 13:28:34
I thought the same. He is not ready yet in my opinion for the step up and very light weight. He may come good but would prefer to have a more ready made player with prem experience.

14 Jan 2024 12:28:54
If Fabio Silva couldn't hack it with Wolves, I don't think Jack Clarke will either. Silva had 45 minutes in a friendly in Spain for Rangers against relegated Hertha Berlin. Consensus was that he was too easily outmuscled playing as a striker.

09 Jan 2024 23:55:04
Mendes getting involved in bringing Hugo Ekitike to Wolves.

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Jan 2024 06:37:27
Thanks for the Mendes intel Rated.
Looks a good prospect, only issue is his his discipline control.

10 Jan 2024 13:39:46
Hugo Ekitike’s agent is Karl Buchmann.

10 Jan 2024 17:30:00
Nothing stopping a agent to agent chat Oxley.

10 Jan 2024 17:36:39
Oxley. Since when did that stop Uncle Jorge getting involved and making his dinner money out of the deal!

10 Jan 2024 18:35:01
Appreciate comments but agents fees alone would probably prohibit deal given FFP restrictions.

10 Jan 2024 20:48:25
Have to say, why is no one talking about Patrick Bamford.

10 Jan 2024 21:11:52
7 goals in 54 appearances in the last 3 seasons of those only 1 has been this season in the championship.

Leeds would probably want a high fee as well.

That's the reason no one is talking about Patrick Bamford WaterlooStand.

Yes he had good stats 2020/21 season but that's about it.

11 Jan 2024 02:33:10
Don't want diving little cry babies we only just got rid of one in Podence, that's another reason we're not talking about Patrick dive and cry Bamford.

11 Jan 2024 04:29:33
Nobody is talking about Bamford because he's not a PL level striker, as his recent two seasons have proved. He's another sick note too.

11 Jan 2024 09:00:53
My brother is a diehard Leeds fan and is in absolute despair every time Bamford's name is on the team sheet. One absolute screamer against Peterboro last weekend doesn't make him a PL striker . or even a good Championship one. Not for me, thank you

12 Jan 2024 19:27:12
No chance with Bamford. Always done it in the championship never really had the look about him in the prem.

I would go Noha Lemina from the videos he looks ideal cover for Neto and Hwang. And just to have a player that is confident to run at defences would be great especially when some teams play everyone in defence.

Striker is difficult everyone is after that player that scores 15+ goals.
Ekiete looks a talent but not sure whether we should save the money for a decent striker in the summer?

I would love Xavi Simons if we could get him (in the summer) think he would link up well with Hwang and Cunha and Fabio Silva.

Obviously big price tag on him but I think he could be worth £80m+ in 2-3 years time.

07 Jan 2024 08:25:19
Sasa loan to franfurt confirmed then.

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Jan 2024 12:58:45
With sasa and fabio gone, we must be close to geting a striker in. I know they hardly played but it was two bodies on the bench, in a small squad.
With players away and gomez missing 3 we need cover if we pick up a couple of injuries we could find it difficult to win games

07 Jan 2024 13:42:42
There must be someone lined up, otherwise SK wouldn't have been let go out on loan. But who is the question?

07 Jan 2024 14:09:26
Danny Ings

07 Jan 2024 17:07:12
Prefer Danny to Che Adams

07 Jan 2024 18:08:47
I think your right Jas, I reckon Ings will arrive in the next week or so. I have to be honest I really don't see the point in signing Ings. He's never going to be up to being long term cover cause he's just always injured, that's not going to improve as he gets older?! Personally I'd love to see us get that Boulaye Día lad who we've been in for last window. Looks like a great player with the kind of physical attributes needed to lead the line. Also looks like a few clubs are tracking him so maybe he's got more attractive options now? We need to start building this squad up, for me Ings doesn't especially help with that (long term) but time will tell 👍

08 Jan 2024 10:25:43
Imagine if Ings is injured early days, would leave us paying big wages for no product. I'd steer clear and rely on Hobbs to find another young and hungry.

09 Jan 2024 13:43:09
Danny Ings not leaving now

09 Jan 2024 14:34:47
Rejoyce! I really don't think he was the solution to the problem.

09 Jan 2024 19:57:56
Personally I'd rather have Danny Ings and hope he doesn't get injured rather than have no striker at all.

09 Jan 2024 21:59:35
On his wages, Jas? Aren't we currently doing rather well with no striker at all? Summer is the real time for squad strengthening.

09 Jan 2024 22:30:01
Ings.!
Adams.!
Is costa still available if that's the best we can do.fgs.we need some1 with a bit of mobility.theyr dedlegs who don't suit our style atall.

09 Jan 2024 23:53:24
Old Wulf, if we can get him I'm on loan then that's ideal. He is a proven scorer at this level. I'm regards to his wages, if we are only contributing 50% of Silva, Sasa and Guedes wages whilst they are on loan, then this gives us capacity to pay 50% of Ings wages.

At the moment, we have let Sasa and Fabio, Hwang on International duty and Neto only just back from injury. That leaves Bellegarde and Cunha as our most attacking options unless we promoted Fraser and Gonzalez.

10 Jan 2024 11:40:07
Thing is Jas your argument of Ings is better than no one would be valid if it was 31st Jan. But it's not, if it's Ings or no one this early on (having already let two strikers go) then we have bigger problems than our strikers! I'm sure we have other irons in the fire, looks like it's academic anyway as I think injuries will make Ings unavailable anyway 👍

10 Jan 2024 12:47:27
Buxwolf, not heard from you for a while. I've missed your little messages of joy.

06 Jan 2024 15:38:40
Wolves are trying to sign Danny Ings on loan from WH and are talking to Liverpool about Carvalho on loan as well. Carvalho yes not to sure about Ings only scored 3 goals so far this season.

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Jan 2024 16:08:10
Seemingly still have strong interest in HUgo Etikite but he is on a big salary at PSG which may be a problem. Would be ideal for our current playing style.

06 Jan 2024 17:48:49
Liverpool will only loan Carvalho to a team who guarantees to play him every week. Don't know he is good enough to start for us every week.

06 Jan 2024 19:07:46
Jas M, very odd stipulation from Klopp / Liverpool, no player is guaranteed their place, they have to work for it.

06 Jan 2024 19:50:21
That's what's been reported. Whoever loans him has to guarantee him playing time and there is also no option to buy.

08 Jan 2024 15:04:57
Going to Hull apparently

09 Jan 2024 17:21:02
To "Hull and back" then!

06 Jan 2024 12:04:59
There is currently lots of noise about Neto's future at Wolves with a growing acceptance that he will leave in the summer, normally with Arsenal as the destination.
What is less clear however is the "value" that Wolves will obtain.
I have heard figures ranging from £30m to £80m mentioned with outliers at £100m + {Note his injury record is often mentioned as the reason for the "low" figures}
For Wolves however the problem is though how do you replace him not just for the fee (whatever it is you receive) or the wages but in terms of players who will come to Wolves (geography and football status).
I therefore get to thinking who would be capable, (even if not willing), of replacing him 1 for 1 in the Wolves team.
Note many players might have similar or even better stats, (actually far fewer do if you include assists and not just goals where he is actually a bit "light"), but if those stats are achieved in more favourable circumstances are they as solid?
So restricting yourself to players who currently play in the Prem who are you confident could come in and do a similar job for Wolves.
Once you have your list, (I assume you have a v short one), think what those players' clubs would demand for their man and that is what Wolves need to receive for Neto!
That outlier doesn't look so silly now does it!

{Ed002's Note - Pedro Neto (RW/LW) Versatile and looking to move on. Agent has been approached by Manchester United, who will need an Antony replacement, and Arsenal. It is unclear why Wolves are so kee and they clearly have other priorities, but they are. Juventus fear losing young left-footed RW in Matias Soule and may look to Neto. May be wanted in the Middle East which would push his value up. I would expect Wolves to as perhaps £50M for him.}

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Jan 2024 12:48:30
I recent interview I heard by a Football finance expert was that Arsenal, Villa, Newcastle, Forest and Palace were all in danger of breaching FFP as they have spent big money on new players but not received as much for outgoing players. Arsenal have spent big on White, Partey, Rice, Odegaard and Jorginho in the latest FFP cycle and this is why they could only sign Raya on loan. If the sign Toney for £100m as well as Raya for £45m, then they will have to move some players on to facilitate any move for Neto.

We were linked with a young Portugese winger last week. Maybe he is the replacement for Neto. It is all guesswork at the moment but the good news is that we looked good recently when Neto was available so maybe GON is happy for him to move on for a big fee so that he can add more depth to the squad.

06 Jan 2024 16:07:19
Ed 002 and Jas thank you for two sensible responses. Jas you make valid points re Arsenal and depth - although not sure depth is easy to get right.
Given how hard I believe it will be to replace him (see below) and the fact that our FFP problens are now largely under control - still think we will need to be sensible this Jan but hopefully there will be a little wriggle room in the summer even without a major sale - I am as Ed 002 says unsure why Wolves are seemingly "keen" or even willing to countenance a sale?

I was hoping for a list of names from you guys of Premiership players who could replace him. Maybe you think he is irreplaceable? However, to encourage you, I will kick off.

I went through the mids on Fantasy football and identified those whose points per min were in line with Neto (ok not a perfect comparison but at least not subjective) and then eliminated those that played in a more central or defensive role but who, perhaps because they take pens, are up there. I then also eliminated the big team's players Salah, Son, Saka, Gordon, Doku, Foden etc.

This left:
Bowen and Kudus at WH, Olise and Eze at CP, Elanga at Forest, Mitoma at Brighton, Mbuemo at Brentford or Bailey or Diaby at Villa. How many of these can you realistically see coming to Wolves - maybe Elanga, (who I actually suggested as a Fabio option when United bought him for pennies a few years ago), but probably a round number?

Also, admittedly with my biased eye, I only really would want Bowen or Mitoma on a 1 for 1 basis, i.e. I would want to have cash left over aFter signing any of the others?
Thoughts or alternatives?

06 Jan 2024 18:36:59
Neto is unique as his runs direct and defenders and the quality of ball at the is normally up there.
Although some of these players have been in good form.
I would say Neto is similar to Jota before he left in that he is one of if not the best of the rest. And he would make a difference at a big side.
So for that reason I think he is worth more than £50m the others would be sold for £70m+.Why not Neto?
In terms of replacements it's tricky as the club have tried to bring in numerous players over the past 6 years.
When we played Chelsea they had Badiashiale and Madeuke who would have developed like Neves, Jota and Neto much better than they will at Chelsea.
But. Selling Wolverhampton a sthe place to play is hard.

06 Jan 2024 18:51:26
For me, if Neto does go, we don't need to rush out and replace him. Bellegarde and Hwang can play either side and we have Gonzalez currently adapting to English football and so he should be ready soon. Some players I would like and think can be a success with us are Dwight McNeil, Dwight McNeil and Jack Harrison.

06 Jan 2024 22:53:00
Madman - v good post
Jas Dwight Mcneil is a v good shout. However Jas I think Neto is a class above both the 2 Wolves players you mention, even Hwang in his undeniably purple patch, so whilst I agree they could play in those areas - in fact have done - I'm not sure that it wouldn't be a drop off in quality for Wolves
The mention of Chelsea does though show how hard it is to put a cash price on it - they paid over £80m for Mudryk (sp) who is not even in the same postal district as Neto - but others, like Mitoma, were signed for pennies, allegedly £3m in Mitoma's case, albeit before he was established in the Prem like Neto is?
For me Wolves won't be able to replace him 1 or 1 so as Jas says we will need to do a deal or two to add depth. However that comes fraught with difficulty.
For every good deal there are numerous bad ones and once you sell Neto you can't go back.
Ask Southampton they sold Shearer to add depth and got Speedie and Dixon seemingly a great idea 2 top players for one - but Shearer goes onto be a legend and the other 2 disappear without trace. Closer to home look how we spent the Robbie Keane money - badly! Or more recently the Jota money!
If at all possible I wouldn't sell but look to build the team around him, Cunha, Lemina and Gomes.
I believe that we are on the right road and that we don't need revolution just slow evolution.
Only Dawson needs replacing in the short term and our growth therefore can be from a position of some strength?

07 Jan 2024 17:10:10
I forgot Man U bought Anthony for over £80m as well. So 2 players not fit to lace Neto's boots bought for over £80m each?

09 Jan 2024 07:01:09
If Neto played for Brighton or Brentford he would be worth £100m so why are Wolves players always undervalued. Even if the mentioned teams overvalue their players, they still get it!

09 Jan 2024 09:34:13
Adeee - hard to argue. Neves "only" fetched £40m from Saudi but after a few months evidence he looks a far better bet than Enzo or Caicedo (sp) at Chelsea both of whom cost over £100m. Having said that Rice who looks better than all 3 again went for just over £100m
Maybe we over rate our players or maybe we missed a trick in not engaging Chelsea or Man United who seem to be the outliers in overpaying?

06 Jan 2024 08:51:57
Nottingham Forest are interested in Wolverhampton Wanderers and Portugal goalkeeper Jose Sa. According to Football Transfers - the article itself is actual puddle water.

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Jan 2024 10:47:17
And also recycles Pap from summer 2023.

06 Jan 2024 15:11:02
Article does mention the summer and "previous interest"

05 Jan 2024 22:20:55
GON on Sasa Kalajdzic: Sasa will go on loan to Frankfurt in next few days

He's got stuff going on off the pitch, new baby on the way

At this moment in time, he needs to go and play football

Comes back in summer, similar to Fabio and then we'll reassess

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Jan 2024 05:57:31
Top notch work Rated!

Now that Sasa going out on loan, surely there's a striker lined up?

06 Jan 2024 10:49:41
Has not Sasa's wife just opened a cafe/restaurant in Tettenhall?

05 Jan 2024 13:40:39
According to reports Sasa is at Brentford tonight then joining Frankfurt on a 6 month loan. Someone please tell me we have a striker lined up to come in the next week or are we not bothering because we have managed to score some goals. Wolves are taking one almighty risk if something happens to Cunha and nobody is signed.

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Jan 2024 13:51:16
Sasa isn't going anywhere until a replacement is in place, there is an agreement in place for him to go out on loan to Frankfurt but only if a striker is bought in.

05 Jan 2024 15:21:44
Fair play Rated, you've been all over this one. But in reading between the lines, it looks like Sasa can go out on loan if a replacement is found.

05 Jan 2024 15:55:31
Rated RKO I know what your saying but surely Wolves should have some one in before negotiations for someone to leave. Why keep Sasa is he ever going to play it makes no sense what is going on he can't leave till a replacement but never gets a game.

05 Jan 2024 18:38:42
Saga is on the bench.

05 Jan 2024 20:24:52
Update just come through verbal agreement in place, Wolves changed their minds he can go.

04 Jan 2024 18:47:49
According to French outlet RMC Sport, Wolves are one of a handful of clubs that are interested in signing Hugo Ekitike, who has been described as a “huge talent” by Football Talent Scout Jacek Kulig.
The striker signed for PSG for £30m this summer, but there is the potential that a loan with an option-to-buy deal could be arranged in January.

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Jan 2024 14:01:11
According to the rumours Kilman of to West Ham Neto going to Arsenal Whang going to Spurs. I know it's paper talk but it should be who are Wolves signing not who we're selling the squad is not that big a striker would come in handy.

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Jan 2024 16:07:22
What's happening with mosquero?
Is he good enough if we sold Kilman?
Out the 3 this scenario I see could work for us.

04 Jan 2024 16:48:50
These rumours have been around for a few days and continue even though Neto has come out and said he ain't moving in January. It's the usual clickbait stuff.

04 Jan 2024 17:35:32
Don't worry Dek. By all accounts we're selling the whole squad this month! When we are doing well there will always be interest in our players. The Neto to Arsenal rumour has been around for a few seasons and will one day probably happen, but on our terms, not Arsenal's. Gary is just about to have his first transfer window for Wolves and I expect it will be to our advantage.

04 Jan 2024 19:41:27
Looks like sasa to franfurt done but awaiting confirmation of a striker joining, possibly ings maybe adams.
Arteta not expecting neto this month. West ham havnt the funds to pay for kilman as it stands, and hwang won't be going anywhere unless it's big money. Mario's brother looks a definite/maybe. RAN may well be a surprise departure if the moneys right. All quiet on the Sa front. That's the gossip and clickbaits I've been noting and I reckon they're about right at the moment.
