Wolves are set to fund a transfer for Sunderland’s youngster Joel Asoro. The two teams have had extremely contrasting seasons with Wolves winning the Sky Bet Championship and Sunderland now relegated to League One.
The Molineux side have had a splendid year that has surprised their fans. They were put under the charge of Nuno Espirito Santo and the manager has brought in a bunch of new players who have helped the side win the league comfortably.
The money coming in from the recent takeover has certainly helped them and Wolves look likely to continue in their ways next season as well. They will know that they are now in the league of the big boys and they must improve further on their already impressive squad to cut the mustard in England’s premier competition.
On the other hand, Sunderland have had yet another disappointing season. They were relegated last year from the English Premier League and now from the Sky Bet Championship. It seems like a never-ending spiral for the Sunderland team who have been slipping down ever since.
To add insult to injury, it now seems that Wolves are ready to further weaken Sunderland’s side by swooping in for their youngster Joel Asoro. The 19-year-old is a highly talented striker and has a bright future ahead of him.
His contract is set to expire next summer and Sunderland chiefs will have a task on their hands keeping him in the side. The club’s chief executive Martin Bain has urged the player to stay at the club.
He said: “It’s definitely the right place for them. They’ve had a taste of it now, so they don’t want to go somewhere else and get lost in the system.
“They want to stay with us and develop, but they haven’t signed a contract yet. “I think we just need to get back around the table and have a chat with them. You know what football is like, with young players you don’t know who is in their ears and what they’re filling their heads with. “They’ve got a good chance with us, they really have, and I’m pretty optimistic they’re going to stay with us.”
It now remains to be seen if the player will be lured by the attraction of playing in the English Premier League or he will choose to stay back in the sinking ship of Sunderland. However, if Wolves bring the youngster into their side, he might be a good addition to their already fearsome attack and give it more flare with his pace and agility. So, it might be a good decision for Santo to add the 19-year-old speedster to his squad.
