Wolves have played an excellent season en route their title win this season. They have brought in a new manager and some expensive players and the system has clicked into place with Wolves looking flawless for the majority of the season. They will be entering the top tier of English football next season and might need a few upgrades in places.
One such position could be that of a goalkeeper. Here are three viable choices for Wolves to consider.
Trophies with Manchester City and an opportunity now to win the FA Cup with Chelsea. Willy Caballero has never really been the first choice keeper at either club but he has played his part in their run ins to domestic trophies. He has been excellent whenever called upon and been an excellent team player.
He has displayed enough skill to play first choice in the teams of comparatively smaller stature in the English league. He is way north of 30 and unlikely to have a sharp growth in his career. Hence he could be a real choice for Wolves who will have money to spare on a goalkeeper.
The Liverpool goalkeeper has been given an extended run at Merseyside but has failed to deliver the goods for Jurgen Klopp’s men. It is perhaps not the easiest thing to deliver for a giant club like Liverpool and maybe that pressure has stopped him from bringing out his top game.
His career at Liverpool is all but over now with Karius being picked ahead of him and if Liverpool get another keeper in, that would send Mignolet down to the third spot in terms of custodians at Anfield. This would mean that the player will need to seek a new turf. This would make him a luring option for Wolves. With enough experience in the Premier League and potential to deliver more, Mignolet and Wolves can form a good combination.
The Manchester United youth academy product has been on loan at Aston Villa this season. He has been excellent in helping Villa into the playoffs spot. The goalkeeper however, will have his loan contract terminated at the end of this season. Although Villa might offer him a new loan spell or a permanent signing chance, nothing is set in stone yet.
At United, there is David De Gea and hence it is unlikely Johnstone will want to return to the club to sit on the benches. Hence should Villa fail to qualify, Johnstone could become a viable option for the Wolves.
