Wolves hit a stumbling block over Transport Goal Daniel Podence’s contract. Wolves’ ongoing pursuit of Olympiacos winger Daniel Podence could go down to the last day of the transfer window after suffering a minor stumbling block.
There were conflicting reports over the weekend that suggested the deal was on, then off and because it has been revealed the west Midlanders are very much still keen on signing him, per the Express & Star.
If Wolves were to lose out on the diminutive winger, then the blame lies solely with the club for trying to complete their business so late in the window.
The likes of Kevin Thelwell, John Marshall and Fosun have had the whole month to iron out these details whilst boss Nuno Santo continues to do wonders on the pitch with his threadbare squad.
It’s quite frankly shambolic they have allowed any potential move to enter the last four or five days before the deadline because it only gives the selling club a further extent to ramp up the purchase price and make them urgently splash out.
Wolves badly need depth if they are to compete for a top-six berth in the Premier League as well as at the Europa League knockout stages.
Raul Jimenez is their only senior striker; there is no backup to Adama Traore or Matt Doherty; even central midfield is light on choices.
An injury or two would decimate their chances of some success this effort, so everyone at Molineux best hope they could induce this one over the line in time.
