Wolves’ transfer situation is in the spotlight, with manager Gary O’Neil expressing concern about squad depth as the January transfer window approaches. Their recent 2-1 win over AFC Bournemouth saw Sasa Kalajdzic’s crucial contributions from the bench, lifting them seven points clear of the relegation zone. Matheus Cunha, who started as the forward, found the net just two minutes into the second half, while Pedro Neto was unlucky not to score with a left-footed strike that hit the crossbar early in the match. Despite having 21 shots during the game, only seven were on target, highlighting the need for a more prolific striker in their lineup.

O’Neil’s acknowledgment of squad depth concerns suggests that preparations for the January transfer window at Molineux are underway. Financial considerations will play a significant role in addressing the issue, but for many fans, it’s a top priority.

Some fans expressed their concerns about potentially losing Pedro Neto, while others appreciated O’Neil’s candor. They emphasized the need for more talent and experience on the bench and called for reinforcements, especially in the striker position.

One supporter pointed out the lack of options on the bench and called for improvements to remain competitive in the Premier League. Another urged a quick return for Jean-Ricner Bellegarde and stressed the importance of signing a striker in January. The need for a backup for Kalajdzic was also highlighted, as Matheus Cunha and Hwang Hee-chan are not traditional strikers, leaving Fabio Silva as the only recognized alternative.

While opinions on priorities may differ, there is mention of a potential transfer target. Stuttgart striker Serhou Guirassy has been in sensational form, with 15 goals in just nine appearances, even outscoring some top names in European football. A release clause of £15.2 million will be active from January, though the player currently has no intention of leaving his Bundesliga club. However, the allure of the Premier League is hard to resist.

Despite no concrete links to Guirassy, signing him would be a significant statement for Wolves. His goal-scoring prowess at a reasonable price makes the deal appealing. The prospect of a front three featuring Pedro Neto, Guirassy, and Hwang is tantalizing for fans, and only time will reveal the outcome of this potential striker acquisition by 2024.
