Report: Spanish side interested in forgotten Wolves striker

Young Wolverhampton Wanderers striker Rafa Mir has emerged as a possible transfer target for Real Zaragoza.

According to El Periodico, the 22-year-old ‘fits the bill’ for the Spanish second division side, who are in the market for a new striker this summer.

Mir is very much out-of-favour at Molineux, and spent last season out on loan at Las Palmas where he scored seven goals.

Having joined the club in January 2018 from Valencia, he has gone on to make just four first-team appearances.

Mir has three years left on his contract at Molineux and will hope they can get decent money for him.

 

Something that could scupper any move though is the player’s wage demands of around €1 million-a-year. With Zaragoza having been out of La Liga since 2013, that kind of money would be very difficult to hand over.

TBR’s view

It would be unsurprising to see Nuno Espirito Santo move Mir on amid links to Zaragoza.

He clearly hasn’t shown enough and perhaps he is too similar to Raul Jimenez to be an option from the bench for Wolves. The Mexican, of course, is the far superior striker.

There was a lot of hype surrouding Mir when he first pitched up at Molineux but there has been very little fanfare about him since.
