Wolves should target Neal Maupay as cover for Raul Jimenez

Wolverhampton Wanderers have secured European football for next season, after a brilliant seventh-placed finish in the Premier League.

Manager Nuno Espirito Santo has enjoyed great success at Molineux with a relatively small squad in the last two years, but that method will surely be stretched in the next campaign with the Europa League.

The West Midlands club could do with some more options and particular in the attacking department.

There isn’t much strength in depth behind the preferred forward duo of Raul Jimenez and Diogo Jota, which is something they need to fix.

One man that should crop up on their radar is Brentford’s Neal Maupay, who is reportedly being targeted this summer.


According to the Sun, Aston Villa are considering a club-record £20million move for the French centre-forward.

The report details that newly-promoted Villa are eyeing the 22-year-old, while Burnley, Brighton, Norwich City and Sheffield United are also keen.

Wolves should throw their name into the race for Maupay and offer him the chance of European football at Molineux.

He’s just enjoyed a stunning campaign for Championship outfit Brentford, where he scored 28 goals in 49 games across all competitions.

The rapid striker leads the line well when running in behind and he’s got the type of hold-up play that would fit in well with Nuno’s system.

Maupay has not had the experience of Premier League football, but is a developing talent that would be an excellent back-up option to Jimenez next year.
