Wolves offered the chance to sign "ruthless" player

We are now just a day away from the Premier League resuming for another season.

Unfortunately for Wolves, they'll have to wait until Monday evening to finally get a taste of the new campaign.

They'll welcome Sheffield United to Molineux in an encounter that based on last season's form, could be a difficult one for Nuno Santo and co. 

Both teams have been busy strengthening in the window, but Wolves have done some of the most eye-catching business in the division. 

Having signed Fabio Silva from Porto for a club-record fee, they now have even more fire power to aid both Raul Jimenez and Diogo Jota in forward areas. 

Silva only turned 18 in July so a fee of £35.6m is rather remarkable. Wolves are gambling on his potential but he'll have to hit the ground running straight away for a fee that high.

It's unlikely he'll start against the Blades next Monday but he's certainly a young player to get excited about.

However, Wolves could sign another very talented forward player before the window is said and done. 

According to TuttoJuve, the Midlands club could be offered one of three Juventus players this summer.

The problem, though, is that it'll be in a swap deal for Adama Traore should Wolves be willing to let him go.

That sounds far-fetched enough but just wait until you hear the three players. One is Federico Bernadeschi, another is Aaron Ramsey and the final one is Douglas Costa.

We're going to focus on the latter here. The Brazilian is currently valued at £18m so Juventus would surely have to offer a fairly decent sum of money too.

After all, Wolves have previously valued Adama at a fee of £135m. That's a mindblowing amount.

GIVEMESPORT'S Matt Dawson says...

It is absolutely imperative that Wolves hold onto Traore this summer.

He had been going about his business in English football rather quietly but last season he came alive in truly devastating fashion.

We'd been wondering for years just how on earth he'd come through the famous La Masia academy at Barcelona but now we know exactly why.

Last term, the winger scored four goals and registered nine assists in the Premier League, completing a colossal five dribbles in the process.

However, if they were to consider a swap deal, they'd find few better alternatives than Costa.

At 29, he is in his prime, and he is as equally tricky to deal with on the flanks. 

Shakhtar Donetsk coach Mircea Lucescu claimed he was "ruthless" in 2015 before Bayern expert Philip Rober hailed his greatest attributes in the same year:

He said: "Great dribbling skills, explosive pace – both over short and long distances – and a powerful shot in both feet, allied to the ability to beat defenders and a set-piece threat, make him a potent asset."

Costa created just two fewer goals last term and managed 1.9 dribbles per match in Serie A. His career rate stands at 2.6. This is clearly a player who loves to run with the ball, just like Adama.
