“The big thing which has always impressed me about him is his work-rate,” Bull wrote about Bonatini in Express & Star.

“In some instances he reminds me of myself, the way he is prepared to run the channels. As we have seen during his current scoring streak, he is a mean finisher too.”

According to The Mirror, Wolves can secure the services of Bonatini on a permanent contract from Al-Hilal for a transfer fee of £5 million.

Based on the Brazilian’s performances so far this season, signing the 23-year-old forward for £5m would be a bargain.
