According to SportTime in Greece, Wolverhampton Wanderers are among the clubs interested in the services of Jose Sa. The Olympiacos goalkeeper has raised a lot of eyebrows with his performances in the UEFA Champions League this season, with Arsenal, West Ham and Bayern Munich also keeping tabs.
Sa’s success at Olympiacos
Sa was regarded as one of the best young goalkeepers in Portugal when he first made his breakthrough. But, after failing to make an impact at FC Porto, he was loaned out to Olympiacos last summer. He impressed in his debut campaign in Greece, which led to the club making his move permanent for a fee of €2.5 million.
Over the past 12 months, Sa has been one of the most consistent performers for Olympiacos. Despite the club’s mediocrity, the ‘keeper has somehow managed to impress week in week out. Especially against Bayern Munich this season, Sa showed precisely what he is capable of with a brilliant display in between the sticks, minimising Olympiacos’ defensive frailties.
The 26-year-old has featured in 51 matches for Olympiacos in all competitions, during which he has kept an impressive 26 clean sheets. His statistics for this season in the league are outrageous as the Portuguese has mustered seven clean sheets in just ten matches, conceding three goals.
Is Sa a viable option for Wolves?
Sa has never really managed to live up to his massive potential. But, his remarkable performances at Olympiacos suggest just how good he actually is and the fact that he could still be able to make a mark at the highest level of football. Hence, it won’t be a bad idea from Wolves to sign the goalkeeper.
The Premier League outfit already have a reliable goalkeeper in Rui Patricio. But, they lack the presence of a reliable long-term alternative, with John Ruddy recently turning 33. Sa, in that regard, could provide competition for Patricio and serve as a medium to long term replacement for his Portuguese compatriot.
However, it remains to be seen whether or not Olympiacos would be happy to let go of Sa, having signed the ‘keeper permanent barely six months ago. His current contract at the club expires in 2023, meaning the Greeks have every right to increase the asking fee for their prized goalkeeper.
