Wolves Eyeing Up A Deal For Leeds United Defensive Star: Why The Deal Doesn’t Make Any Sense!

According to latest media reports, The Sun is claiming that Sky Bet Championship winners and Premier League new boys Wolves are interested in signing Leeds United goalkeeper Bailey Peacock-Farrell. The 21-year-old goalkeeper finished the recently concluded season as Leeds’ number one choice and is now being targeted by the recently promoted side Wolves.

Wolves are believed to be chasing the signature of Bailey Peacock-Farrell, according to The Sun’s Sunday reports (June 10th, page 60). The player will reportedly cost Wolves around £4m and the “shock bid” is expected to be made this summer. The reports get even weirder as it is being believed that Wolves are not just in the hunt for the Leeds United custodian but also want to bring in Portuguese shot-stopper Rui Patricio.

The Portuguese goalkeeper was a part of the national team which won the 2016 edition of the Euro Cup and could possibly join the bandwagon of Portuguese players at the Molineux stadium. Wolves have spent a fortune in the transfer market last year after being taken over by new owners. The new bosses at the club have left no expenses uncovered as a new manager and a host of extremely talented new players like Ruben Neves and Diogo Jota were brought in.

The result was there for everyone to see as Wolves, under the stewardship of Nuno Espirito Santo, charged to the top of the Sky Bet Championship with absurd ease. They were by far the best team in the league and their position at the top was never under any real threat. They collected a massive 99 points and qualified long before the end of the season for the English Premier League.

The Molineux based outfit has three keepers in their ranks with John Ruddy being the first choice goalkeeper at the club. The custodian was named in the Championship team of the year for the last season and has been excellent in goal for Wolves this season. Their backup choice Will Norris has been extremely impressive in the cup competitions whenever called upon. Their final choice is Carl Ikeme, who missed most of the last season through illness.

With so many good keepers in their ranks, it does not make any sense for Wolves to add two more goalkeepers to their ranks. They will need reinforcement in other areas and the buys in the Premier League are likely to prove expensive, no matter how rich the owners are. Hence, they would do better to save the money and spend it in other areas of the squad rather than bring in more players for a department which they already have covered.
