Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo will be desperate to bolster his ranks at Molineux during the summer transfer window, in an attempt to build a squad who are capable of enjoying a successful Premier League campaign next season.

One area where the Portuguese is reportedly looking to strengthen is his central midfield department, with the Sun claiming that he is lining up a £20 million swoop for Stoke City's Joe Allen this summer.

With the Potters staring relegation down to the Championship in the face, the Wales international would surely be tempted into a switch to Molineux.

Allen is a classy midfielder, and can play in a variety of positions ranging from the deep-lying midfield role to the more advanced number 10 position.

The 28-year-old also has plenty of experience in playing at the very highest level - something that could prove to be vital to Wolves upon their return to the top flight.

He could also form a fantastic central midfield partnership with Ruben Neves, if the Portuguese remains at the club in the summer.

For the reported fee of just £20 million, Wolves could secure themselves a relative bargain by bringing Allen to Molineux this summer, considering the current inflated state of the transfer market, and by signing the Stoke man, Wolves would be making a big statement of intent ahead of next season.
