Signing McKenna would be another masterstroke by Wolves

Aston Villa and Celtic both failed to sign the four-cap Scotland international in the summer.

Wolves have begun life back in the Premier League in decent form, losing just once in their opening seven matches and sitting in the top half of the standings.

Nuno Espirito Santo was a busy man during the summer transfer window signing 11 players but his additions have significantly bolstered the squad, balancing his side well for the gruelling campaign that lies ahead.

There is still work to be done though and, despite having the fourth-best defensive record in the top-flight, Nuno seems to have set his sights on another defensive addition as The Scottish Sun states Scott McKenna is in the club’s sights.

21-year-old Scotland international McKenna attracted interest in the summer window from Celtic and Aston Villa but Aberdeen stood firm on their stance, although boss Derek McInnes has previously admitted he expects the defender to move on in the near future.

 

Wolves’ defence has looked firm with a back three consisting of Conor Coady, Willy Boly and Ryan Bennett but Nuno’s side does lack depth beyond 23-year-old Kortney Hause, yet to make his Premier League debut this season.

Signing McKenna would, therefore, provide a significant boost to Wolves’ depth and would increase the competition amongst the defensive options at the club, while also providing the opportunity to rotate during the battle across numerous fronts.

The signs this season have been promising and there is no reason why Wolves cannot fight for a top-seven finish and the European football that comes with it – and signing McKenna would help achieve that goal.
