Go for it Santo – 2 Wingers who Wolves can look to sign before deadline day

Wolves already have a very handy squad but it must be remembered that there have been injury problems for the likes of Helder Costa and there is always the worry that players such as Diogo Jota, Leo Bonatini, Willy Boly and Ruben Vinagre, who are all at the club on loan currently, are not guaranteed to stick around.

As such, there will surely be changes in this squad in the summer, when all the mid-season wheeling and dealing is over for another window. Wing positions, or in the case of Wolves, slightly wider support strikers, are some of those deemed to need some reinforcement very shortly and so here are two players who could add something to the party:

James Maddison (Norwich City)

I know he’s not a winger but one has to look at the way Wolves play their game and you can see why he’d fit in. Diogo Jota, for example, operates on the left and just behind the striker but cuts inside at every opportunity he gets. This is a role Maddison could do with his eyes closed.

True, it would be a close call between the two of them right now but Jota is only at Molineux on loan while Maddison is thought to have a huge future in the English game. So this could be a wise move. Norwich are keen to sell top talent in order to balance the books, with Robby Brady, Jacob Murphy and Alex Pritchard all having left for big money in recent windows.

Joao Carvalho (Benfica)

At just 20, Carvalho has already achieved a lot but still has a way to go in the game. Being of Portuguese extraction, he would be an obvious target for Wolves and one who should have no problem fitting in with manager Nuno Santo and players such as Roderick Miranda and Ruben Neves.

Two more of his colleagues, Helder Costa and Ivan Cavaleiro, have already taken turns in occupying the right-wing spot more often than not in the Wolves team but Carvalho offers a little more in way of versatility. The young attacker can play anywhere across the attacking midfield or wing positions and would be of great benefit to a Wolves side that is about to embark on a Premier League journey.

One last positive note about this young player is his potential value for the future. Having represented Portugal at under-15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20 and now at U21 level, he is clearly seen as a prospective member of the national team.
