Wolverhampton Wanderers boss Nuno Espirito Santo is reported to want to add another central midfielder to his squad this January.
The Black Country club are not exactly inundated with options in the middle of the park, with Joao Moutinho, Ruben Neves and Romain Saiss Espirito Santo’s only choices to hold the midfield.
Morgan Gibbs-White has emerged for Wolves but he appears to prefer operating in the more attacking areas in behind the main striker.
That all said, Wolves should think about hijacking AS Monaco’s reported move for Chelsea star Cesc Fabregas, who has become something of a forgotten man at Stamford Bridge.
Fabregas still has fantastic quality
Maurizio Sarri appears not to rate him too highly, although he has said he wants him to stay, but Fabregas is still a quality player.
The World Cup winner has achieved a lot in his career and played with some of the world’s best players.
He has lots of experience that would be hugely beneficial to Wolves going forwards.
He could be a great mentor for Ruben Neves and excellent competition for Joao Moutinho.
Ominously, his current deal with the Blues expires this summer meaning he could be available on the cheap this month, or available to sign on a pre-contract.
It would be an ambitious swoop but there’s potential for money to be saved on a fee and be used for his wages.
Wolves are an ambitious football club that are doing well in the Premier League. Perhaps he might just be tempted – Wolves just need to put themselves in the position.
