Wolves unlikely to pursue permanent deal for Brazilian striker

Wolves are unlikely to make Leo Bonatini’s deal at Molineux permanent, when his loan at the Championship club runs out at the end of the month, according to the Express and Star.

The Brazilian striker notched 12 goals for Wolves in an impressive debut campaign in English football.

However, he looks to have played his last game under Nuno Espirito Santo as the Champions will not take up the option to bring him back to the Midlands on a permanent basis.

Diogo Jota and Willy Boly look set to return to the club after they played a pivotal role in securing the Championship title for Wolves.

Jota will join from Atletico Madrid for £13m and Willy Boly will sign from Porto for £10m.

Speaking to the Express and Star, sporting director Mark Thelwell said that he doesn’t expect the Premier League new boys to make any new signings in the near future.

“I can’t see anyone making decisions right now, agents players or football clubs,”

“Although it doesn’t seem like it we are still very early in the window.

“We’ve done a lot of work and diligence and we are talking to a lot of people.

“The ideal thing would be to get as many done early as possible, but at the end of the day it’s about getting the right players.

Wolves will need strength in depth ahead of their return to the top flight, but Thelwell admits that they need the right type of players at the football club next campaign.

“We understand exactly what the football philosophy is with Nuno, we’re clear about the types of players he wants so now it’s about getting out there and doing the job.

“Let’s hope we get to the next window pleased with the job we’ve all done.”
