Rodrigo links should spring Wolves into action for Spanish striker

The Spanish striker is linked to Jorge Mendes, who has helped Wolves win promotion to the top-flight.

Valencia forward Rodrigo is being linked with a move away from the club this week. It has been reported by Superdeporte that both Everton and Juventus are keen on the player and that Los Che could consider selling him at the right price this summer.

But if Rodrigo is looking like being available, surely Wolverhampton Wanderers should take notice.

Currently away with the Spanish national team, Rodrigo has just had an excellent season. The 27-year-old scored 19 goals in 44 games and his performances earned him a place in the Spanish World Cup squad.

Wolves would, therefore, seem like a step-down. But the Molineux side are on the up and have a strong link with Mendes, who has helped them sign some of their biggest talents.

Rodrigo, at 27, could still see Wolves as the perfect opportunity to be a big fish in a small pond and score goals at a regular rate.

If Wolves are going to do what they can to be a big player in the Premier League, then bringing in players of Rodrigo’s qualities is a must.

Using the Mendes link, in this case, would be a good piece of business for Wolves.
