Since Fosun International completed their takeover of Wolverhampton Wanderers back in 2016, the Molineux faithful have been treated to footballers they previously could not have dreamed of wearing the famous gold kit.
Ruben Neves, Diogo Jota, Willy Boly and co have been revelations and led Wolves back to the Premier League while storming to the Championship title.
With Wolves boasting almost unlimited funds, it is an exciting time to follow this waking giant from the Black Country. But while the present looks positively sparkling with promise, the future looks pretty bright, too.
Because while attempting to bring in a couple of marquee, big-money signings as they plan to take the top flight by storm, Wolves are also allegedly chasing a whole host of talented youngsters which seems to suggest that Fosun are in this for the long term.
The Star (13 May, page 49) claims that Wolves are interested in signing the teenage Sunderland striker Joel Asoro, who has been a rare bright spark on Wearside as the Black Cats suffered successive relegations.
Meanwhile, Gazzetta dello Sport has highlighted Wolves’ continued interest in the 19-year-old Inter Milan prodigy Andrea Pinamonti, who has a fearsome record for Italy at youth level. This comes just a few months after Wolves beat Real Madrid to the Spanish hitman Rafa Mir.
Asoro and Pinamonti are not the only teenagers who have been linked with under-the-radar moves to Molineux since the Championship season came to an end. Although time will tell if Fosun can build a dynasty in English football.
