Wolves are having an excellent season down at the Sky Bet Championship. Nuno Espirito Santo’s men have already won the league with a few games to spare. They have been far better than the chasing pack all season and the league winners are now preparing for a very important summer, which will be succeeded by top-tier action in English league football.
Nuno Espirito Santo’s men have reportedly been linked with a move for Stoke City midfielder Joe Allen. The Potters’ star was brought into the club from Liverpool by former manager Mark Hughes. Allen is a talented central midfielder who failed to make his mark at Merseyside. Owing to the tough nature of competition at Anfield, the Scot was granted permission to leave and ended up joining Stoke City.
He made a good start to life at Stoke City playing in every game for them. However, over time his form dipped and he was counted out from the playing eleven. He has now seen himself getting sidelined on multiple occasions. Under new manager Paul Lambert, Allen is yet to form a reputation.
Stoke City, on the other hand, are themselves suffering from a run of bad form. They have been below par in the league this season and are now fighting to stay alive in the league. The Potters are currently in the 19th spot. They are 3 points adrift of the safety net and with only two games to go, they look well set for the drop.
Should the Potters get relegated, they will have to reshuffle their squad and cut down on their expenses to survive in the Championship. They will have to start by selling players, especially the ones who are on top of the payroll. This would mean that Stoke would most certainly be saying goodbye to Allen who costs them a considerable amount in wages every week.
As for Allen himself, even the player would want to move away from a sinking ship and join the new champions of the Sky Bet league. He would be joining a team who are high on confidence and have shown enough guts and glory this year to stay alive in the Premier League next season.
Wolves, thanks to their new owners, are ready to invest and bringing in Allen would add guile and versatility to their midfield. He would be a player with great experience of playing in the league and hence would be a good addition to the team.
