Two Players Who Wolves Can Target If They Miss Out On Harry Wilson
Liverpool are adamant about not wanting to listen to offers from either Wolverhampton Wanderers or Brendan Rodgers’ Celtic for young winger Harry Wilson. The lad from Wrexham is quickly gaining a big reputation in the game and is much sought after, though he may yet play a full part in Liverpool’s domestic and European campaigns next term.
Wolves are already well off in this position, since they have the talented Portuguese player Helder Costa at their disposal. So Paul Lambert’s insistence on finding another such winger is slightly worrying. Could he foresee Costa leaving soon? Who knows! But in any case, here are a couple of alternatives to Wilson who may yet be able to help lift Wolves up the Championship table:
Roger Guedes (Palmeiras)
With other Portuguese-speaking players already at the club, it would be relatively simple for Guedes to settle down. The 20-year-old Brazilian has a bright future but is not yet on the radar of top clubs. He would no doubt look for a way to get himself into European football and would possibly jump at the chance to join Wolves’ promotion push.
Guedes’ stock has been rising since a move from Criciuma last year in his homeland and he would now command a good fee. That may yet prove to be money very well spent for, with his sell-on value in a year or so likely to be much, much higher in the future.
Milot Rashica (Vitesse Arnhem)
Plying his trade in the Netherlands’ Eredivisie, Rashica is turning heads now and managed 2 goals and an impressive 12 assists from his 33 league games this season. No Premier League clubs are as yet showing a serious interest, so it may be that a club of Wolves’ stature can nip in and grab his signature.
Rashica is a Kosovan hoping to emulate the achievements of Adnan Januzaj and in England and he certainly has the ability. 73 games in the Netherlands so far have already brought him 12 goals from out wide and if he is given another twelve months or so, he may be priced out of Wolves’ range. A little bit of foresight and the willingness to take a slight risk may reap rewards for the West Midlands side and Rashica could be the hitherto star in England nobody had swooped to sign up.
