Wolves have been in fine form under their manager Nuno and are ready to challenge again for an European spot. Several players have been linked with moves to Molineux in the last few weeks with Wolves preparing to spend in January.
Speaking about the January window, chairman Jeff Shi said: “We are always ready to invest. Don’t worry about it. If we need to strengthen the squad of course we have the capacity to do that in January.”
Wolves will need to strengthen their squad if they want to finish in the top 6. In this article, we will have a look at players Wolves could sign in January transfer window.
Here are the eight players Wolves could sign in January transfer window –
8. Franck Kessie
Wolverhampton Wanderers have been linked with AC Milan’s Ivory Coast midfielder for the best part of 12 months. While Wolves are understood to hold a long-term interest in Kessié, reports a deal was close to completion in August are wide of the mark.
That isn’t to say Wolves won’t make a move for Kessié in the future. Nuno is still looking to add a midfield player to his squad and Kessié could well tick the Portuguese’s boxes.
7. Cedric Soares
Wolverhampton Wanderers are interested in signing Southampton defender Cedric Soares. Cedric is out of contract in summer and has already informed the club of his desire to move on.
The 28-year-old has mostly been on bench for the Saints this season and is expected to be available when the transfer window re-opens in January.
Southampton are willing to cash in to avoid losing him for nothing. Wolves, with their strong Portuguese links, are hoping to strike a deal for the full-back and believe they can land Cedric for as little as €8m.
The former Sporting man is thought to be keen on joining Nuno’s men.
6. Robin Koch
Wolves could make a January move for Freiburg defender Robin Koch. Nuno Espirito Santo currently has Willy Boly out injured at Molineux.
It has been suggested that the Black Country club could provide competition for Leicester City over the German centre-half, with Norwich City also named as possible suitors.
The two-cap Germany international, Robin Koch, has impressed with some dominating performances, and is not on a particularly long contract (2021).
