Wolverhampton Wanderers need to strengthen in attacking areas if they want to improve on last year's Championship campaign.

Wolves head into the new Championship season surrounded by a renewed sense of optimism among their fans following the takeover from ambitious new owners Fosun International.

The Midlands club finished last season in a respectable 14th position, but if they expect to improve on that this term they will have to strengthen their squad considerably.

One position that requires immediate attention is the wide attacking area. An ideal acquisition for Wolves would be former Blackburn Rovers and Queens Park Rangers winger Junior Hoilett.

The 26-year-old Canadian is available on a free transfer following his release from QPR this summer and possesses copious amounts of talent and Championship know-how.

Despite his age, Hoilett is vastly experienced in English football, having played 193 league games for Blackburn and QPR during a seven-year period. He is most comfortable playing out wide on the left, but is fully proficient at playing anywhere along the front-line.

His style is direct in nature and he has tremendous ability when running with the ball at his feet. He would also provide Wolves with an added goal threat from midfield, which they desperately need after they managed only 53 goals in 46 Championship outings last term.

Although Hoilett has been consistent whenever he has turned out for his club, he has never really reached the heights expected of him while he was an up and coming youngster at Blackburn.

Should a move to Wolves ever materialise, it would provide him with an opportunity to re-establish himself as a top quality player and rebuild his reputation as one of the league's most exciting wingers.

Sometimes players just need a spark to reignite their careers, and a move to the Molineux Stadium could provide Hoilett with exactly that.
