Wolves: Fosun could now make 'considerable changes' at Molineux

Wolves manager Bruno Lage in the Premier League against Norwich

Wolves selling Romain Saiss, Ruben Neves and Raul Jimenez would be “huge losses” for Bruno Lage, according to journalist Pete O’Rourke.

The £63.9m-rated trio have all been linked away from Molineux this summer and O’Rourke reckons they’ll be hard to replace should they leave.

What’s the latest news involving Saiss, Neves and Jimenez?

While they could leave Wolves when the window reopens for business, each find themselves in a different position.

Saiss’ deal expires next month, which means he’s the most likely to move on, especially after he hinted to Sky Sports that he might have played his last game for Wolves.

Meanwhile Neves, who’s been strongly linked with Manchester United in recent months, also commented on his future following the defeat at Liverpool on Sunday.

What year did the Molineux stadium become Wolves’ home?

“All of us have dreams and we need to live those dreams in a small space of time,” the midfielder said. “Let’s see what happens, I cannot say too much about it.”

Finally, Jimenez still has two years to run on his current deal, but talkSPORT believe that Wolves could cash in on his services for just £15m this summer, with a return to Spain far from ruled out.

Jimenez assisted Pedro Neto’s goal at Anfield, but he has scored just six goals since returning from a fracture skull sustained in 2020.

What did O’Rourke say about Saiss, Neves and Jimenez?

He told GIVEMESPORT: “It would be huge losses for Wolves to lose those three players as they’ve been instrumental to their success in the Premier League.

“So, it will be a big rebuilding job for Bruno Lage if he does lose those three players, because they won’t be easy to replace, and it does seem like there will be considerable changes at Molineux this summer.”

Why would they be such big misses?

Part of the reason why these three would be such huge losses for Wolves is not only because the quality the trio offer, but because they’re nailed on starters when fit and have all been hugely reliable figures for the club.

This campaign alone, Saiss featured in 31 of Wolves’ 38 Premier League games, while Neves and Jimenez missed four and five matches respectively.

With Wolves already struggling towards the end of the season, culminating in a tenth-place finish on the final day, Lage cannot afford to lose three of his most important and experienced faces in the same window.

It already promises to be a summer of change at the club and seeing those three depart at the same time won’t help his cause to get it right.
