Wolves are strongly linked with Willy Boly, but is the Frenchman suited for the Championship?



Wolves fans could scarcely believe it when their club were bought out by Chinese international conglomerate Fosun International, and the Far East investors have certainly kept to their word as the big spending starts to begin at Molineux this summer.

The club have been linked with many names, but in recent days attentions have turned to Porto pair Ruben Neves and Willy Boly, who look set to leave the Estadio do Dragao for the Black Country in the coming days.

Many fans will not have heard of the pair, and here at Football League World we took a look at the latter, Frenchman Willy Boly, to see what he would bring to the club should he make the switch this summer.

Having represented France at various youth stages, Boly moved from boyhood club Auxerre to Portuguese outfit Braga in 2014, before making the switch to giants Porto only last summer.

Despite making 29 league appearances and scoring 2 goals for the club last year, Boly does not seem to be in the plans of new boss Sergio Conceicao, and could follow former boss Nuno Santo to Wolves.

Upon his arrival last summer, Porto inserted a €45 million release clause into his contract, highlighting their belief in the Frenchman, but Wolves will may a fee significantly less than this figure.

At 6 ft 3 in, Boly cuts an extremely imposing figure, and his strength and ability to read the game would be a significant asset to the Molineux side.

Having played in both the Portuguese top flight and the Champions League last season, Boly should easily adjust to the demands of the Championship, as although the division could be considered more vigorous in terms of physicality, Boly’s frame makes him an ideal candidate to succeed.

It’s an exciting summer for fans of Wolverhampton Wanderers, and if they can pull off a deal for the commanding Frenchman as well as Ruben Neves, then it will be hard to look past the club as promotion favourites.
