Can Wolves avoid a transfer invasion this summer?

For the second straight year, Wolverhampton Wanderers have finished seventh in the Premier League. When you put that alongside the fact that they’re still involved in the UEFA Europa League at the Round of 16 stage, we’d say it’s been another pretty successful year for Nuno Espirito Santo’s men.

However, as we look ahead to the remainder of the summer and beyond, it appears as if there’s been a great deal of interest in some of Wolves’ biggest and best names. That’s understandable when you consider how well the club has built up their squad in the last few years, and it’s left many fans wondering what is going to happen next.

The answer is nobody knows for sure, but either way, you can bet they’ll do everything in their power to try and rebuild if players do leave Molineux.

Today, we’re going to give our predictions for where we think the big four will end up: Nuno, Raul, Adama and Diogo.

Nuno Espirito Santo

A few months back everyone was relentlessly discussing the possibility of Nuno leaving the Black Country in favour of a move to a bigger club – whether that be in the Premier League or across the rest of Europe. However, after another strong year, we really don’t think there’s any job out there that would lure him away from his precious Wolves.

Prediction: Stay

Raul Jimenez

This is the one that appears to be causing the Wolves faithful the most grief, with Juventus and Manchester United reportedly leading the race to sign the popular Mexican. While the Old Lady is apparently willing to put forward an insane offer to lure him over to Serie A, we’re expecting United to win the battle and keep him in England.

Prediction: Join Manchester United

Adama Traore

The insane pace and strength of Adama Traore has been on display all season long, with many believing that he should’ve been in the conversation for Player of the Year. The Spaniard is still young and has a whole lot of time left to grow, and therefore, we think he’ll decide to stay with Wolves for another year instead of heading up north to join Liverpool.

Prediction: Stay

Diogo Jota

The talk surrounding Jota really does seem to have died down in the last few weeks, perhaps due to his somewhat questionable form. We still think he could be on the move next summer if he is able to get back to his best, but for now, Wolves fans can probably relax.

Prediction: Stay
