Wolves Linked With This 23 Goal European Striker: Right Man To Beef Up Santo’s Offensive Department?

Wolverhampton Wanderers will be looking forward to life in the Premier League and they seem to be gearing up for it by making a move for quite a few players in the transfer market. The latest player to be linked with them is Porto’s prolific striker Moussa Marega. The forward has managed 23 goals and eight assists this season and has played a crucial part in yet another domestic league triumph for the Portuguese giants.

The West Midlands club have been smart in the transfer market as they brought in some 5-6 players on loan and most of them played a crucial role in their promotion to the English top flight. However, now that most of them are set to return to their parent clubs, Wolves will be either looking to sign them on a permanent basis or bring someone as a replacement for them.

One of them, who did well for Nuno Santo’s side, is Benik Afobe who arrived on loan from Bournemouth and there hasn’t been any move made by Santo to get him on a permanent basis so far. Afobe is a good option to use up front but if they miss out on him, Wolves will have to look for alternate options in the transfer market and that is where Moussa Marega comes into the picture.

The Portuguese club has set a price for the forward and they are going to demand €30m. If Nuno Santo wants to have him, he will have to break the club’s transfer record which was created by his signing of Ruben Neves from Porto and what a signing that turned out to be as Neves was instrumental in the middle of the park for Wolves.

Nuno Santo will certainly have an edge over signing Porto players as he was their former manager and he would have certainly played a huge part in bringing Neves from the Portuguese giants to English second division. There are various clubs vying for Marega but Wolves will be backing on Santo’s relation with his former team.

The forward thrives when he is partnered up front with a quality striker. He can play the role of the secondary striker well as his hold up play is top notch. Marega is going to be an upgrade over current striking options which Wolves possess and the Malian striker can certainly add a lot of firepower to Nuno Santo’s side.
