Wolves surely have to join Newcastle in Ryan Sessegnon hunt
Wolverhampton Wanderers defender Jonny is facing a lengthy spell on the sidelines, after it was confirmed he has suffered knee ligament damage.
The Spanish defender will require surgery according to the club, which is a major blow.
Jonny has been a big hit a Molineux since his move from Atletico Madrid in 2018.
The star joined on loan initially, and impressed so much the club splashed a reported £15 million to sign him permanently (BBC Sport).
Jonny has been an ever-present in the starting XI since his arrival, and Nuno Espirito Santo now has a decision to make.
He could put his faith in youngster Ruben Vinagre, or dip into the transfer market.
If he opted to do the latter, perhaps Ryan Sessegnon should be the go-to man.
TBR’s View – Sessegnon could be perfect for Wolves
The Sun have reported Newcastle United are looking to sign Sessegnon on loan this window, but Wolves should do their level best to bring the 20-year-old to the Black Country.
There’s a reasonable chance he’ll be allowed to temporarily depart Tottenham Hotspur, where he only made 12 appearances in 2019/20.
The former Fulham star needs regular minutes and he would surely get that in Jonny’s absence at Wolves.
The Wolves system could be absolutely perfect for the £25 million man (BBC Sport), who has played as both a left-back and a left-winger so far in his fledgling career.
The attack-minded ace could flourish as a wing-back and under the guidance of Espirito Santo.
