Wolves receive huge Renato Sanches boost ahead of January transfer window

Wanderers were in for the Portuguese starlet in the Summer and could renew their interest

Wolverhampton Wanderers have received a boost in their bid to sign Lille midfielder Renato Sanches with Talksport presenter Alex Crook claiming that their Portuguese contingent ‘might get bigger’ during the January transfer window.

Wolves were linked with Sanches back in the Summer with the move ultimately breaking down due to a medical issue but with that problem now cleared up - Crook thinks Bruno Lage may be back in for the central midfielder.

The Talksport presenter and commentator was the first to break the news that Wanderers were interested in the Portuguese starlet in the last window and it’s difficult to see him bringing his name back to the forefront without the deal having some legs.

“Wolves have a sizeable Portuguese contingent and that might get bigger,” Crook said.

“If you can remember on transfer deadline day Wolves were trying to push through Renato Sanches.

“That move broke down due to a medical issue.

“He is now fit and is a player that I understand that Wolves are looking closely at again, they are in need of that type of player. A bit of dynamism.

“I think Sanches will be a great signing for them, just to provide a bit more attacking edge, if they can do business in January.”
