Should Wolves pick up this free transfer?

Published

Out of contract and out of favour, Bakaro Sako looks set to leave Crystal Palace this summer.

If Sako doesn’t sign a new contract, Wolves would be wise to take him on a free transfer. A return to Molineux, where he spent three fruitful seasons, would be a move that would suit both parties well. The 30-year-old has a few seasons left in him and could well prove to be a useful addition to a Wolves side that is light on top flight experience.

Despite being plagued by injuries in his three years at Selhurst Park, Sako has managed to maintain his reputation as a solid performer when fit. Despite making just four starts, he still managed to grab three goals. Additionally, he demonstrated that he is comfortable playing on either wing or in the centre. From Wolves’ perspective, this fits in with their preference for a front three.

The main concern would be whether he would be able to stay fit and avoid injuries. Five separate spells on the sidelines in three seasons give reasonable cause for concern. However, he should be viewed predominantly as a squad signing, rather than a first eleven signing.

This is partially because Wolves already have a strong forward line, but also so that Sako is under less strain and less susceptible to injuries. Coming off the bench would increase the threat that he offers against tiring defences and provide Nuno Espirito Santo with an extra card to play in tight matches. Wolves could do a lot worse.
