Wolverhampton Wanderers appear to be going from strength-to-strength in the Sky Bet Championship under Nuno Espirito Santo, with Premier League football looking a real possibility next season.
Monday’s 1-0 victory over Birmingham City at St Andrew’s helped re-establish Wolves’ four-point lead over Cardiff City at the top of the table, whilst it also opened up a 10-point gap to third, putting Nuno’s side firmly in control of the race for automatic promotion.
Reports this morning have revealed Wolves’ strategy for the January transfer window, with Nuno set to significantly bolster his squad as he aims to secure promotion to the Premier League.
Wolves are preparing to spend £20m, securing the permanent signing of on-loan duo, Diogo Jota and Leo Bonatini, whilst also adding a striker and right wing-back.
Chris Martin is reportedly on Wolves’ radar, with the Derby County striker a known target.
Following the latest transfer update at Molineux, here is how Wolves’ supporters reacted…
We can't be both insisting on PL quality while also shortlisting Chris Martin. Obvious contradiction

What about Willy Boly?

This is just the start of the revolution

Can we have Boly too, please?
— Christian Dabnor (@dabnorfish) December 7, 2017
Tying up the deals for Leo & Jota would be brilliant, as would signing another striker and a right wing back. But not Chris Martin. Someone who could upset the applecart. Remember him striking while on loan at Fulham? Martin doesn't fit the 'good enough for the Prem' remit either

Any news about Boly.?To me he is now the bedrock of the team. If Wolves go up he would be essential.

More proof that we'll never see Ben Marshall again!

I wouldn’t be surprised to see Oliveira finally sign from Norwich due to their financial problems. Solanke from Liverpool on loan would be a very good backup for Bonatini and would flourish under Nuno’s mentorship.
