Wolves should pursue electric Championship star this summer

Wolverhampton Wanderers boss Nuno Espirito Santo was recently reported to be considering offloading three wings this summer.

According to The Mirror, Adama Traore, Helder Costa and Ivan Cavaleiro are all at risk of the chop after poor seasons at Molineux.

Wolves as a collective have been fantastic, but the speedy trio have been particularly disappointing individually.

Traore, who was once Wolves’ club-record signing at £18 million (BBC Sport), has scored just one goal all season and provided one assist. The Spaniard has made just eight Premier League starts.

Cavaleiro and Costa have managed just seven goals and three assists between them across all competitions, which is a disappointing return.

All three have been poor and it would be a surprise if Espirito Santo didn’t get rid of at least one this summer.

One man who is seemingly on the market who Wolves should be targeting is Swansea City youngster Dan James.

 

TBR’s view

James burst onto the scene last year with the Welsh club and has wowed with his electric pace and dangerous dribbling.

The Wales international scored five goals and laid on 10 assists, which is an impressive return since it was his first full season.

His pace could make him a huge success in the Premier League, and Wolves need to upgrade their wide options. Espirito Santo has been known to use a 3-4-3 system on occasion which would suit him perfectly.

James, who is interesting Newcastle United and Bournemouth (Wales Online), could potentially be a superb weapon coming off the bench and stretching tired defences.

He is valued at £10 million according to The Daily Mail, which could make him an absolute steal.
