Wolves want Matheus Nunes and another signing done 'by the weekend' at Molineux

Wolverhampton Wanderers boss Bruno Lage passes instructions onto his players

Wolverhampton Wanderers have ‘got to get a striker in’ before the transfer window shuts on September 1, according to journalist Dean Jones.

The Midlands outfit are currently desperately short of options up front after Fabio Silva joined Anderlecht on loan and Raul Jimenez picked up an injury in pre-season.

What is the latest news involving Wolves?

Last season, only the three relegated clubs scored fewer Premier League goals than Wolves, who found the back of the net on a measly 38 occasions in their 38 fixtures.

Jimenez was the Molineux side’s top scorer in the league with an underwhelming tally of just six strikes, further highlighting their need for additional firepower for the current campaign.

And so far in 2022/23, Wolves have only managed to score one goal in their opening two games, picking up a single point thanks to their goalless draw with newly-promoted Fulham last time out.

However, things are started to look up for Bruno Lage’s charges, who have welcomed winger Goncalo Guedes from Valencia and are closing in on the capture of Sporting Lisbon midfielder Matheus Nunes.

Securing the services of a striker will surely take precedent for Wolves next, though, as they look to add some cutting edge to their rather blunt attack.

What has Jones said about Wolves?

Jones believes that the Wolves hierarchy will ‘look to fix’ their issues up front before they take on Tottenham Hotspur in their next fixture.

In an interview with GiveMeSport, he said: “Undoubtedly, they’ve got to get a striker in. This has to happen; it is a case of urgency for Wolves.

“They’re still a good side, they’re just lacking that cutting edge in the final third. And I think that is something that they will look to fix before the next game.”

Who could Wolves sign?

Portuguese reporter Bruno Andrade has previously claimed Silva’s loan switch to Anderlecht has led to Wolves reopening talks with Benfica over a potential deal for Goncalo Ramos.

Meanwhile, Football League World state that they have now entered the race for Ben Brereton Diaz’s signature, who is in high demand after entering the final 12 months of his contract with Blackburn Rovers.
