Wolverhampton Wanderers are looking to reunite with their former player Bakary Sako in the upcoming transfer window. The winger’s time has been plagued by injuries at Selhurst Park but he has shown his worth whenever he has had a decent run of games. The West Midlands outfit will be looking to prepare for life in the Premier League and Nuno Santo will be looking to bring in reinforcements so that they can continue their climb in English football.

Wolves are on a signing spree as they recently confirmed the permanent deals for Benik Afobe and Willy Boly who played a crucial role in their promotion to the English top flight last season. They have not been afraid to break the bank to land their targets when they got Ruben Neves for a club record fee. The signing of Bakary Sako will certainly boost their attacking options and will hold them in good stead for the challenges of the English Premier League.

Sako made just 19 appearances for his side this term and managed to get on the scoresheet six times. His season was cut short after he suffered a fractured ankle and damaged ligaments in a Premier League encounter against West Ham United

Wolves faithful will remember him fondly as he played a crucial role in helping the club gain promotion from League One in the 2013/14 season. He was one of the brightest players at the Molineux back in that season. Even in his next season in the Championship, he was crucial for them and he was in the Championship’s team of the season for that year.

On the back of such performances, Wolves couldn’t manage to hold on to him as clubs from Premier league came calling and Crystal Palace secured his services. The midfielder, however, hasn’t been able to secure his place in the Eagles lineup and could look for a move away in the summer. Apart from Wolves, there are other Premier League clubs as well who are in contention to sign him.

Because of his previous association with Wolves, they will surely be the front-runners to sign him. Sako is known for his blistering pace and trickery down the left wing. Wolves had the services of Diogo Jota who was on a loan deal at Molineux and played down the left flank. If they don’t manage to get him on a permanent basis, maybe we can see them reunite with their former player.
