Wolves should move fast to secure this 10-goal winger on a free transfer

Wolverhampton Wanderers will look to quickly put the 2016/17 season behind them, and turn their thoughts to the new campaign and what is sure to be a busy summer transfer window.

Wolves spent the majority of the campaign looking over their shoulders, which was disappointing considering the investments made this season.

Impressive winger Helder Costa signed a permanent deal in January in a £13 million switch from Benfica, having played the previous season on loan at French champions Monaco.

The tricky winger is being touted for a Premier League switch in the coming months, and Wolves fans will be disappointed that their star man looks set to leave the club.

The Molineux side will be sure to demand a serious fee for the player however, and look to make a tidy profit on the £13 million they parted with to bring the Portuguese man to the Black Country.

Manager Paul Lambert may not have to dig too deep for his replacement however, as the right man looks set to be available on the free agency market when his contract expires next month.

Marley Watkins had a solid year with Barnsley, scoring an impressive 10 goals in 36 appearances for the Yorkshire club.

The Welshman joined the Tykes from Inverness in 2015, but will depart Oakwell this summer.

At the age of 26 and an excellent season under his belt, Watkins is ready to move on to a new challenge, and the project underway at Wolverhampton Wanderers may be the next step in his career.

Lambert will have funds to spend should Costa depart in the coming months, but should begin his summer transfer activity with the signing of Watkins on a free transfer which could prove to be the best piece of business he does all year.
