In a recent report, The Daily Mail has mentioned that Wolverhampton Wanderers are hoping to land Leicester City keeper Danny Ward this summer. It is understood that Wolves have identified the Welsh custodian as an ideal replacement for Rui Patricio, who could be on his way out of the Molineux Stadium during this summer transfer window (via The Daily Mail).
Ward’s Sporadic Role At The King Power Stadium
Since joining the Foxes from Liverpool back in 2018, Ward has struggled to get a regular run of games in Brendan Rodgers’ starting XI. The 28-year-old has made 14 senior appearances for the East Midlands side last season, conceding eight goals and securing eight clean sheets across all competitions.
However, the Wrexham-born talent has caught the eye with his performances for Wales in the UEFA European Championships recently. Hence, he could prove to be a shrewd addition to the Wolves squad ahead of the new campaign as long as they plan to use him as a backup keeper.
At 28, Ward still has plenty of years left in him to serve as a decent squad player in top-flight football. Therefore, Wolves should think about launching a move to bring him to the Molineux Stadium before the start of the new season.
What Will The Foxes Keeper Bring To The Molineux?
Ward boasts decent reflexes and can make some quick dives to come to his team’s rescue at the back. He can pull off some timely saves and is a good handler of the ball as well. However, the 16-time Wales international needs to work on improving his passing if he wants to succeed playing in Wolves’ style in the years to come. He also lacks the experience of playing top-flight football week in week out which could make him a risky first-choice goalkeeping option for any top club including Wolves.
Recruiting Ward will undeniably enhance the overall depth of the West Midlands club and could even help them make a good cup run in domestic competitions next season. The Leicester goalie could serve as an upgrade over John Ruddy but is nowhere near consistent enough to fill the big shoes of Rui Patricio at the Molineux.
We can expect Ward to bring some much-needed cover to Wolves’ goalkeeping department and could even go on to become a regular starter for them in the coming seasons. All in all, the Midlands side should consider moving in for the Welsh goalkeeper during this summer transfer period.
