Some Wolves fans buzzing as they could land reported Arsenal target on loan
A number of Wolves fans have reacted to speculation claiming reported Arsenal target Renato Sanches could potentially join Molineux on loan.
According to Sky Sports, Wolves are in talks over the Lille and Portugal midfielder.
Sanches has also been linked with Mikel Arteta’s Gunners in recent weeks.
Tuttomercatoweb claimed Arsenal begun talks to land the 24-year-old earlier this month.
But now, speculation seems to suggest Sanches is likely to play in old gold instead of red and white.
Although Sanches is currently recovering from a knee injury, Wolves are apparently hoping to finalise a deal before the transfer deadline.
And Wolves fans are excited about the prospect of the talented playmaker turning out for them:
Renato Sanches is one of those players who can propel us to the next level, a true box to box midfielder with the technique to go with it #wwfc— Adam (@AdsInTheMiddle) August 30, 2021
Oh my god if we sign Renato Sanches I might actually shed tears 🥰🥰🥰 Please Mr Shi #wwfc— Connor McGee (@Connor241298) August 30, 2021
Sanches and Neves in midfield together is gonna be some duo, just need a CB back in and I can see us challenging top 7 again— wwfc_owen (@wwfc_owen) August 30, 2021
Sanches would be a quality signing to play alongside neves #wwfc— Tom (@ThomasEdwards24) August 30, 2021
Renato Sanches at the Molineux?! Oh wow that would be incredible. The perfect place for him to “rebuild” his career. 😍😍#wwfc— Ed Hague-Saunders (@EdHagueS_Journo) August 30, 2021
Sanches… WOW! Great signing if we can get it over the line. Sven Botman will nicely top off a solid window for Wolves. Feel like he’s the central defender we need to take us up another level. Praying we can get that one done. 🙏🏼 #wwfc— T.O (@TommyOliverWV) August 30, 2021
Wolves and Arsenal target Sanches – the story so far
Sanches burst onto the scene in 2015-16 with Benfica, helping them to a domestic double.
He then made the Portugal squad for Euro 2016 and helped his nation win the tournament.
Sanches moved to Bayern Munich that summer, but his time at the Allianz Arena sadly wasn’t the most fruitful.
While on their books, he also spent the 2017-18 season on loan at Swansea, then in the Premier League.
However, Sanches was far from his best that year and failed to make much of an impact for the Swans.
After three years on Bayern’s books, he became Lille’s record signing, and his career took off once again.
Indeed, Sanches helped Christophe Galtier’s side win their first Ligue 1 title in 10 years last season.
The playmaker then featured at Euro 2020, playing in all four games for Portugal as they reached the last 16.
