There is likely to be plenty of transfer activity at Wolverhampton Wanderers this summer after they enjoyed a successful 2018/19 season.
In their first season back in the Premier League, Wolves managed a more than respectable 7th place finish, one that is likely to have secured them a place in next season’s Europa League.
That rests on Manchester City beating Watford in tomorrow’s FA cup final after the Hornets beat Nuno Espirito Santo’s men in the semi-finals of the competition last month.
Club executives are likely to spend significant money in the offseason in order to strengthen the squad for more matches next campaign.
However, that will also require there being some income from player departures, and it is undeniable that the Molineux club has plenty of saleable assets.
With that in mind, we’ve comprised a list of five players that could be shown the Molineux exit door this season. whether that be on loan or a permanent basis.
Five possible departures from Wolves this summer
Neves has had another fine season in the heart of the Wolves midfield, contributing four goals and three assists as well as his general play. His performances have reportedly alerted many a club, with Liverpool often linked with a big-money move.
The 32-year-old was firmly number two behind Rui Patricio this season, despite having played a key role in getting the club back to the top flight the previous season. With Wolves being linked with Walter Benitez and Adam Davies recently, Ruddy may be shown the door this summer.
Club captain Coady has excelled in defence this season, epitomising the selfless attitude displayed by many a season. The ex-Liverpool man is reportedly on England manager Gareth Southgate’s radar and would help a big club in filling their English player quotas.
Traore came in for hefty £18m fee last summer but 21 of his 29 Premier League outings this term came from the substitutes bench. The winger may be sent out on loan to gain some valuable game time and sharpen his skills.
The Brazilian striker joined the club on a permanent basis from Al-Hilal last summer but failed to establish a regular place in the matchday 18. He was subsequently sent on loan to Championship outfit Nottingham Forest and may be deemed surplus to requirements.
