As quoted by the Express and Star, Wolves’ on-loan forward Leo Bonatini has suggested that he would like to stay at Nottingham Forest past this season.
The Molineux club have adapted brilliantly to life in the Premier League this season and are challenging to be best of the rest outside the top six.
One man who hasn’t really featured in that, though, is striker Bonatini with him joining Nottingham Forest on loan in January.
He hasn’t really nailed a place down for the Reds, though, with Martin O’Neill often preferring Daryl Murphy up top, and so his future still remains unclear.
It seems, though, if he could have it his way he would stay at the City Ground on a permanent basis as they look to get themselves into the play-offs, and that might well please Wolves as a club.
We take a closer look at why that could well be the case…
They might not be able to recoup all the money they’ve spent on him but they’ll at least get something back.
He perhaps doesn’t seem at the level yet for the Premier League and so they must have been wondering how they were going to flog him. They now potentially have a chance.
Frees up squad space
Wolves’ striking options could still be better and if Bonatini leaves permanently they have an excuse to get themselves a new forward.
Raul Jiminez has done a decent job for the Old Gold, but getting in another forward certainly wouldn’t be a bad idea.
