Wolverhampton Wanderers’ fine start to their campaign has raised expectations within the club.

Nuno Espirito Santo

Wolves have begun their 2017/18 Championship campaign in impressive fashion, and currently sit in fourth position in the table, although it is painfully clear to see that Nuno Espirito Santo still needs to strengthen his options in January, if they are to maintain their push for the promotion spots.

Here are three potential bargains for the Portuguese to consider this winter…

1. Abel Hernandez, Hull City:

The Uruguayan ace has just nine months remaining on his current deal at the KCOM Stadium, and the Tigers could be tempted into selling him for a bargain fee in January, rather than risk losing him for nothing next year. The 27-year-old possesses real quality, and is a proven entity in the English game. He would offer Wolves an entirely different threat in forward areas, and Nuno should not hesitate to bring him to Molineux during the winter transfer window.

2. Aaron Lennon, Everton:

The Toffees ace’s days at Goodison Park seem to be numbered, following Ronald Koeman’s extravagant spending in the summer. and Wolves should look to brig the experienced winger to Molineux in January. The former England international’s contract with Everton expires in June 2018, so Wolves would surely be able to secure themselves a bargain, if they moved for the 30-year-old this January.

3. Joel Ward, Crystal Palace:

The 27-year-old defender is wonderfully versatile, and would offer the Black Country outfit real quality cover all across the backline. His current deal with the Eagles expires in June 2018, so Wolves could potentially snap him up for a bargain in January. Ward’s physicality would be perfectly suited to the robust nature of the Championship, and his arrival at Molineux would surely help improve their chances of achieving promotion to the Premier League.
