The Wanderers finished as low as 15th in the Championship during the 2016-17 campaign.
The club, though, have started the 2017-18 season strongly, having signed a number of players in the summer transfer window, including Barry Douglas, Ruben Neves, John Ruddy and Roderick Miranda.
Wolves managing director Dalrymple has set Nuno a top-six target and told Express & Star: “If you say play-offs people might think we should be shooting to get out of this league, but don’t forget we finished 15th last year.
“So there’s a strong argument that to go from 15th into the play-off mix would be a strong development, year on year.
"Then you look at the quality of the players and the coaching setup, it probably recalibrated – certainly in my mind – that the minimum of top six is where we’re looking.”
Wolves have a very strong squad and some wonderful players, and given the start that they have made, the fans should be optimistic of a top-six finish in the Championship this season.
The Wanderers are second in the Championship table at the moment with 23 points from 11 matches, just a point behind leaders Cardiff City.
Nuno’s side will return to action on Saturday evening when they take on Aston Villa at the Molineux Stadium in the Championship.
