Big spending Wolves are currently flying high in the Championship table and sit top of the league ahead of surprise package, Sheffield United, as we head into a busy winter period with plenty of points on offer.
The Molineux club are reaping the rewards of spending big sums on the likes of Ruben Neves and Helder Costa, while the loan signing of Diogo Jota has been something of a masterstroke by manager Nuno Santo.
With the club sitting top of the table, there’s little doubt in people’s minds that Santo will go out in January and spend again, adding further depth to an already talented squad to give his team that final boost needed to seal promotion.
One player we at FLW think Wolves should move for in January is Premier League striker Charlie Austin, who despite having a proven goal-scoring record, is finding his time on the field for Southampton shared with the likes of Shane Long and Gabbiadini.
Austin loves to score goals, and the chance to go and play regular football with Wolves could be something that tempts him. With question marks still hanging over the future of current Wolves striker Leo Bonatini, signing someone who is a proven commodity in the Championship like Austin could be a masterstroke.
A loan move might do the trick for the Midlands club, who will have little problem paying Austin’s Premier League wages should the Saints request them to.
Wolves fans, what do you think? Would you welcome Austin? Let us know in the comments!
