Wolves’ January transfer plans revealed as Gary O’Neil makes transfer priority

The Wolves’ transfer strategy for the winter window is emerging, but they must ensure that Gary O’Neil is not jeopardized off the field.

Wolves fans can breathe a sigh of relief as the club appears to be on track to avoid any Financial Fair Play sanctions from the Premier League.

According to the Telegraph, Wolves needed to raise £90 million to avoid any punishments next summer, and they raised £140 million in total by selling several of their stars.

Matheus Cunha was sold to Manchester City for a reported £53 million, following the £23 million sale of Nathan Collins to Brentford and the £47 million purchase of Portuguese midfielder Ruben Neves by Al Hilal.

It goes on to say that the club will be subject to temporary restrictions and will not be spending ‘big’ in the upcoming winter transfer window in January. Wolves are said to be in the middle of a crucial 12-month cycle of profit and sustainability rules, and will have to live within their means to avoid punishments such as a fine or, worse, a points deduction.

According to the Telegraph, O’Neil has ‘prioritised’ a number nine, and owner Fosun is now attempting to determine how much the manager can be paid to recruit in that position.

Matheus Cunha – signed for £44m from Atletico Madrid – has led the line this season but the club envisage him playing in more of a free role across the front-three instead.

Che Adams of Southampton, who was linked in the summer, could be brought back into the mix. Adams was denied a move to Molineux in the summer, and it was reported that Wolves wanted to sign him on a season-long loan with a £15 million buyout option, which was turned down.

The 27-year-old is out of contract this summer, and the Saints’ position may change depending on whether Adams is willing to commit to them for the long term. He has three goals and two assists in 11 league games this season, and his international prospects will be on his mind as he makes his next decision now that Scotland has qualified for EURO 2024.

According to reports, Wolves are no longer interested in Salernitana forward Boulaye Dia. Morgan De Sanctis, the Italian club’s sporting director, stated in September that they had made an offer of a loan with an option to buy towards the end of the window but were unimpressed with the figures, and Wolves will now look elsewhere for a new forward.
