Wolverhampton Wanderers reportedly will have a huge amount of funds to spend, if they're takeover goes through.

Benfica forward Anderson Talisca

According to The Sun, Wolverhampton Wanderers are planning a £21 million swoop for Benfica’s Anderson Talisca, once their takeover bid goes through.

In this article, we take a look at three other extremely ambitious targets Wolves’ new owners could have - if they are prepared to invest.

Robin Van Persie (Fenerbahce)

Robin van Persie - Arsenal

If Wolves’ new owners seriously have £21 million to spend on one player, then Van Persie should not be out of their price bracket.

The Dutchman is available for transfer from Fenerbahce this summer, and would not cost them a particularly excessive transfer fee.

Of course, Van Persie would likely demand big wages - but it was said that he was willing to take a 50% wage cut to move to West Ham United or Middlesbrough, as he wants a return to England (Daily Mail).

Persuading Van Persie to move to Wolves and play in the Championship could be difficult, but it would be a real statement of the Midlands side’s intent, and he would surely guarantee them goals.

Joe Allen (Liverpool)

Liverpool reportedly want around £10 million for Allen (Daily Record), and he would surely make a great addition to Wolves’ midfield.

Again, convincing such a high profile talent to drop down a division would be tough - but if Wolves feel they have a chance of landing Talisca, then landing Allen would be a real possibility.

Ross McCormack (Fulham)

Leeds' Ross McCormack

Granted, McCormack may not be as high profile as either of the aforementioned pair - but he guarantees goals in the Championship.

McCormack has finished as one of the top scorers in the second division over the last three seasons, and if he did move to Wolves he would significantly improve their attacking options.
