Wolves in negotiations with Reading for U20 striker Danny Loader. He has a year left on his contract (Sky)

Sky sources understand Wolves are close to signing Bayern Munich midfielder Meritan Shabani.

The 20-year old, who has started one Bundesliga game for Bayern, is in the UK to finalise personal terms and have a medical after the two clubs agreed a fee.

The attacking midfielder has one year left on his current contract and is expected to go straight into Wolves' U23 squad.

From Football Italia
"Wolves have reportedly agreed a €25m plus €3m bonus fee for Franck Kessie, but the Milan midfielder wants a big salary increase.

According to Sportitalia transfer expert Alfredo Pedullà, the Rossoneri accepted the offer of €25m plus €3m in various add-ons.

However, it's a race against time to get the contract finalised ahead of the Premier League deadline, which is on Thursday at 17.00 UK time. ".

Tim Nash saying nothing in it.

08 Aug 2019 06:11:34
More than likely true that there’s noting in it 😫.

08 Aug 2019 09:29:31
Not going to happen.

05 Aug 2019 23:26:57
Mario Lemina (Southampton) very close to engage with Wolverhampton from @ManuLonjon (French jouro for yahoo on the micro-blogging site)

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Aug 2019 02:49:40
Apparently the loan signing of Mario Lemina will be announced tomorrow (I’m currently in the USA so it’ll be Wednesday in England)

07 Aug 2019 09:49:51
Tim reporting that we've pulled the plug on Lemina, saints and wolves couldn't agree on the terms.
Think we could be a bit light in midfield'fingers crossed the injury gods are good to us🤞.

07 Aug 2019 12:01:03
Wouldn't listen to Tim mate.

07 Aug 2019 13:25:20
Ignore my rubbish post above. Lesson: don’t believe everything you read online. Even if it is a verified account.

07 Aug 2019 12:51:39
Joke transfer window.

07 Aug 2019 13:47:02
After how bad we were against the teams that sat back last season an attacking midfielder should have always been our number 1 target so this season we have a chance to attack more against those teams so for me that's my only surprise in this window that we didn't get one earlier even if its just a loan signing.

07 Aug 2019 21:17:04
Morgan Samson rumours have resurfaced but fee less than the 40m quoted a while back.

05 Aug 2019 22:39:00
We can't afford a 30m for kessie. What a complete joke. can't afford the personal terms either. Wolves should be going all out to sign him. We don't know the full reasoning behind the failure of the deal or what the player might be demanding. But this is the type of signing we have to try and get over the line to get us to the next level. Wolves seem to want value for money all the time. Kessie is worth 30m at least. Wolves keep trying to get deals done on the cheap which won't get us anywhere. You get what you pay for and wolves WONT do it. You have to pay the fee sometimes to get the quality you need. MAN U wanted maguire and paid over the odds to get him. We are not in that league yet but 30m isn't much in the current market. I have to say after this window i'm seriously concerned at the approach FOSUN are implementing.

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Aug 2019 23:15:44
Patience fellow Dog head. Small steps is what's needed. Rome wasn't built in a day. I trust the management at the minute. :)

05 Aug 2019 23:24:30
Baggie troll alert!

06 Aug 2019 08:16:44
Load of rubbish we can't afford. of course we can afford it.

If a player isn't coming who we want it's because they don't want to come! Nothing to do with money.

I think this window is looking fine now. I had concerns couple weeks back. But cover has been brought in and the window is not finished. They have done well!

The majority of those players we have are not even in their prime. which means ie. The team in all likelihood if kept together will get much better. we don't need massive influx of players and never Have. Don't lose your heads out there.

06 Aug 2019 08:58:24
You need patience. I’m really pleased with the business done so far. Sustainability, squad character and being well within FFP are crucial. Let’s not forget this is only our second season back in the Prem. We’ve overachieved massively so far. Let’s have a bit of a reality check. Top 10 and a run in the cups would do me.

06 Aug 2019 09:54:54
Fans often fail to grasp that FFP rules mean we can't spend like the top four clubs, even though we have the money. The top clubs have had many years at the top, building up spendable resources. Fosun have the money but are constrained in expenditure for the time being.

Deals like stadium naming can bring in so much money. The Etihad and The Emirates come to mind. Sponsorship is obviously more lucrative for these club compared to us.

At Wolves we have to build up income and profits before we can loosen the purse strings.

06 Aug 2019 10:15:56
Some time's you have to laugh at certain fans let's lay it down so you can stop getting your knickers in a twist so Chelsea if I'm not wrong took 3 years to get in top 4 and I believe man city also took as long so we are doing exactly what every club who gets good owners do it takes time to get to the top we have a 5 year plan and we are already 2 years ahead of schedule so stop your damn whining and let the team do what they did last season make every wolves fan proud.

06 Aug 2019 11:40:58
Agree with wlvs82 in a way. I am delighted with Fosun, but if they are serious about eventually wanting to be in Champions League as they claim, they are going to have to up the ante at some stage.

06 Aug 2019 11:40:52
The additions we have made this window have been very good, ideally if we could get a midfield player who can run at defences behind the two strikers that may give us something different when we play teams that crowd the defensive and midfield areas. Harr.

06 Aug 2019 11:52:44
Apologies for the slip of the fingers, I was going to add Harry Wilson did this at Derby last season and could be an option on loan as a squad player.

06 Aug 2019 11:55:19
I suggest some fans look up FFP rules.

06 Aug 2019 12:37:36
Indeed the amount we have spent over the past few years has been very impressive. infact this year we have also splashed the cash what with Dendoncker, Jimenez, Cutrone, and the two lads from Braga That is a spend of over 80 million add on the loan fee for Vallejo that's pushing close to the mid 80s I expect us to add one more player which could push that total to 100million then if you look at the money they will spend on our new stadium upgrade then in my opinion Fosun are exceeding what I thought they would do.

06 Aug 2019 16:59:32
Let’s get real here, everyone saying the business done so far in this window is really good. Who honestly had heard of Vallejo, Cutrone or the two young Portuguese fellas before we were interested in them. I follow a lot of football and had possibly heard Cutrones name once before.

06 Aug 2019 17:11:01
Added to the above if you read the spiel from the player/ agent he's not convinced that Wolves are a "big enough club" for him at the moment. Personally I'd only want us to sign players who are committed to the cause, it's not about 30m its about attidude, fitting in and desire - if he doesn't have desire to join the project then I don't really want him here.

06 Aug 2019 17:16:18
Agreed. Fans should look up FFP rules. You can take a horse to water but you can't make it drink.

I can only think that certain fans are too thick to appreciate that we can't spend as much as we want. FFP says so.

06 Aug 2019 17:22:41
This is the difficult second season where we have to demonstrate we finished seventh because we were good not because we were lucky it's going to be hard to finish seventh again but if we do it's a job well done top six would be amazing.

06 Aug 2019 17:23:03
Are you happy with neves or boly to name two who didn’t want to come. Once here and playing under Nuno and with team they will feel as one and give all. You lot are doing my nut in your thonk the last couple of seasons haven’t happened the way you all moan.

06 Aug 2019 21:20:55
Wolvessince77 - great post mate!

I'd also add to the 'not a big enough club' debate. I shake my head at some of these young up and coming 'stars' who WANT a big club and then moan like little children when they get one and don't start every game, or then go on strike to get another move!
I would much rather have our 'down to earth, do the job' type players, squad and management. With the odd exception I can't remember a player not 'pulling for the club' over the last couple of years. If they are giving their all, then they are giving it for US, the real fans.
Keep your premadonnas, I'll take graft and reality any day!

06 Aug 2019 22:08:35
Cuz when it goes to pot like it did for Burnley and most lik it will for wolves your best players will not want to stick around. To carry on improving you have to invest. Mark my words we Finnish where Burnley did and the majority of this team will want out.

06 Aug 2019 23:08:18
Demon, why have you made Burnley the benchmark. Why not Fulham and Middlesbrough who both got to the final and had good league seasons a few years back. How can you always be so negative?

07 Aug 2019 01:08:09
I suggest the people who think we don't know how FFP works should think about how we were reportedly looking to spend a lot on Dias but decided the asking price was too high.
How is it we can consider him but not anyone else (because of FFP)?
Try putting on your thinking caps.

07 Aug 2019 07:11:29
Timmy T spot on, people saying some fans should look up FFP should maybe have a look themselves. We wouldn’t e offering £30m for Rugani or £27m for Kessie if we were being restrained y FFP 🤷‍♂️.

07 Aug 2019 11:26:24
Media rumours that we've offered huge sums for various players are just rumours. In truth, we end up signing players that were never discussed in the media, and we're all taken by surprise. You all know this.

If you don't understand FFP rules I'm glad Wolves do. Otherwise if we bought all those players mentioned by fans we would be hit by penalties such as points deductions in the future.

07 Aug 2019 11:55:35
Oh do behave you tart.

07 Aug 2019 13:27:16
As far as FFP rules go, the amount going against each year is the amount paid divided by the number of years of the contract. So that is £7.5 million pounds for Jimenez. Dendoncker probably signed a 4 year contract, too, so that is around £3 million a year.
So £10.5 for the two big names you are bandying about.
The two youngsters they paid around £20 million for signed for 5 years, I think, so that is £4 million for the two of them.
Cutrone is £18 million for a four year contract is £4.5/ year.
So we get Less that £20 million for all of the permanent signings for this summer to date, as far as FFP goes.

07 Aug 2019 19:17:19
It's ok guys Demon and TimmyT know more about FFP than fosum it seems.

07 Aug 2019 22:54:51
Why do you say that? Have Fosun given you contradicting information?

07 Aug 2019 23:15:25
Apparently, Rated knows Fosun's recruitment plans and how I am contradicting them.
Who are you Rated? Are you Jeff Shi?

07 Aug 2019 23:34:35
i am just a mere man with a dream of seeing Wolves champions of England and Europe Timmy, did I misread your ffp post? If so I do apologise.

08 Aug 2019 09:58:47
Simple guide to FFP

05 Aug 2019 13:48:42
Daniele Rugani from Juventus and the Italy national team.

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Aug 2019 14:39:31
Aren’t Arsenal going for him?

05 Aug 2019 15:02:17
Yeah but they wanted a 2 year loan option.

05 Aug 2019 15:19:43
By the looks of things the team we have now is it and we won't sign anyone else.

05 Aug 2019 15:25:28
2 more signings to come I think.

05 Aug 2019 15:31:40
E&S “Wolves may not make a first-team addition ahead of the Thursday 5pm deadline. Nothing is currently imminent, with Nuno Espirito Santo and his backroom team confident that the squad currently has enough cover. ”.

05 Aug 2019 16:25:22
That means we will prob get a couple in.

05 Aug 2019 16:48:02
Strange considering Nuno said, "We'll bring in two more" - unless the recent addictions were the two?

05 Aug 2019 19:20:37
E+S also said we wasn't in for Neves.

05 Aug 2019 19:29:47
No need. We've already got him.

05 Aug 2019 22:17:09
Exactly old wulf so don't take notice of E+S lol.

05 Aug 2019 09:56:44
We all want dias and aso an attacking midfielder but imagine if we only sign one more player and it's wallace from lazio

How would you feel about that?

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Aug 2019 12:24:07
Would welcome him to the pack as I would with any signing.
People said Bennet was rubbish and look how he proved them all wrong.

06 Aug 2019 17:39:39
Bennett wasn't expected to be a first team regular but maybe it was Nuno maybe he just improved but he kept Miranda Hause and others out of the team

Hard to know why we signed him in fact other than he was free and Ruddy was also moving to us.

04 Aug 2019 20:02:35
João Mário has greenlighted moves to either AS Monaco or Wolves, according to Gazzetta Dello Sport. Excellent player, if given a proper role. Spalletti just kept moving him around.

According to rui miguel martins on twitter.

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Aug 2019 02:36:52
Apparently Wolves have submitted a bid of £26.5m for AC Milan central midfielder Franck Kessié.

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Aug 2019 12:54:48
Been something on twitter about a midfielder from Southampton too.

03 Aug 2019 15:33:46
@ RKO apparently “Wolves are in advanced talks with Mario Lemina”.

03 Aug 2019 16:11:17
Loan with obligation to buy from what I read Debs.

03 Aug 2019 17:44:47
Franck Kessie not in AC Milan squad tonight.

03 Aug 2019 18:43:20
Had a look on you tube on mario looks good, didn't really know of him, strong going forward with bit of pace.

03 Aug 2019 19:35:52
Be honest I thought Lemina looked a class act on the ball when we played them last year. Really stood out. Very confident footballer. And good competition. Only downer heard he has an attitude problem.

03 Aug 2019 20:21:20
Good luck to Super Mario if he crossed Nuno. But why would he want to cross him, Dr Nuno will make him twice the player he is now. Not often we've been able to say that in the past.

04 Aug 2019 16:53:55
To add fuel to the fire:
AC Milan have signed Algeria midfielder Ismael Bennacer from fellow Italian club Empoli for a reported £14.5m.

04 Aug 2019 18:26:29
Kessie wants supposedly 'top' club and not Wolves.

04 Aug 2019 18:43:14
So did Cutrone SQ.

04 Aug 2019 20:31:11
So did Boly and Neves too.

05 Aug 2019 13:52:18
Neves never said he wanted a "big club". He was brought to Wolves by Mendes and probably never said he wanted to leave Porto until Mendes suggested it.
