The upcoming January switch window might show to be one of many largest in Wolverhampton Wanderers‘ historical past.
The Previous Gold have introduced in Julen Lopetegui as their new supervisor and it appears as if the Spaniard will probably be focusing on quite a lot of new signings at Molineux, as he appears to stave off relegation to the Championship.
Wolves presently sit backside of the Premier League after a woeful begin to the season, which has seen them handle simply eight targets in 15 top-flight appearances, whereas their defensive solidity from the 2021/22 marketing campaign has utterly deserted them.
Unsurprisingly, the Midlands membership are being linked with a plethora of names within the build-up to January, with Atletico Madrid duo Felipe and Matheus Cunha seemingly on the brink of becoming a member of in a mixed deal.
Journalist Pete O’Rourke shared his views on the potential double signing in a current interview with Soccer FanCast.
“They’d be two huge signings if Wolves might get Cunha and Felipe in. Clearly, they’ll again the brand new supervisor Julen Lopetegui within the switch market to try to assist them climb away from bother on the improper finish of the Premier League desk.”
Can Felipe and Cunha save Wolves?
It’s simple to see why Lopetegui is focusing on a centre-back and a striker forward of the January window.
Wolves have regarded extraordinarily suspect on the again with a partnership of Max Kilman and Nathan Collins, whereas a scarcity of depth in that place was severely uncovered when the latter was despatched off earlier within the season, as neither of Toti or Yerson Mosquera possesses the mandatory expertise for a Premier League relegation battle.
Assault has definitely been the principle downside for the Previous Gold this season, as accidents to Sasa Kalajdzic, Pedro Neto and Raul Jimenez have left them extremely quick up entrance, whereas summer season arrivals Goncalo Guedes and Diego Costa have carried out little to recommend they had been price bringing in.
Felipe and Cunha each have expertise taking part in within the Champions League and on the high of La Liga with Atletico, so hopefully the 2 Brazilians can have a huge impact at Molineux ought to they arrive subsequent month.
