Wolverhampton Wanderers have raised quite a lot of eyebrows with their transfer market activity this summer. Wolves notably spent almost €100 million in the market, including the permanent signing of Raul Jimenez, which could turn out to be a masterstroke by Nuno Espirito Santo.
However, they have failed to sign any real alternatives for Matt Doherty, who remains the only out and out right wing-back option at the disposal of Santo at the moment. Hence, the club will need to sign a new right-back in the upcoming January transfer window. And in this article, we will talk about three players they could target.
It won’t be a stretch to say that Pavel Kaderabek is one of Bundesliga’s most cunning fullbacks. Since coming in from Sparta Praha back in 2015, the Czech Republic international has enjoyed immense growth at TSG Hoffenheim, especially under former coach Julian Nagelsmann.
But, with the young coach now moving to RB Leipzig this summer, it won’t be surprising to see some of TSG’s best players leave the club. Joelinton, Kerem Demirbay and Nadiem Amiri have already gone, and Kaderabek could soon follow suit.
The 27-year-old is an athlete who loves to go up and down the pitch and would be ideally suited to Nuno’s wing-back system. His aggression is also tailor-made for the robust nature of the Premier League – making him a viable target for Wolves.
Andrea Conti was tipped to become one of Italy’s best defenders when he moved to Milan in 2017, for a fee of €24 million. But, the right-back’s progress at San Siro has been severely halted by injuries. In fact, he featured in only 20 competitive matches for the Rossoneri during his ongoing two-year spell at the club.
The 25-year-old notably suffered an ACL injury in 2017, which kept him out for six months. And in the following year, he had a knee surgery that kept him out on the sidelines for almost seven months. Conti is, however, fit and can be considered in the first-team for Milan this season.
That being said, it won’t surprising to see the Italian losing his place to Davide Calabria, paving the way for him to leave San Siro. Wolverhampton Wanderers, in that regard, appear as an attractive suitor.
Nathaniel Clyne has been a victim of Trent-Alexander Arnold’s rapid rise to prominence. The ex-Southampton defender struggled with injuries too, and that has more or less made him an unwanted player at Liverpool right now. He is yet to leave Liverpool, but it’s likely he would like to remain in England, meaning a January transfer away from Anfield could be possible.
Wolves, to that end, are an ideal club for the England international. The 28-year-old can be utilised as a perfect alternative to Doherty, and his vast experience of the Premier League would be useful in his bid to settle in quickly at Molineux. Clyne will be available on a cut-price as well, with his current contract at Liverpool expiring at the end of this season.
