‘I have a good relationship with him and he has a proposal in his hands and he wants to go.

Manager Bruno Lage is annoyed the switch window stays open, including to the uncertainty
Lage hit out on the switch window being open with the season underway due to the uncertainty it causes however stays hopeful a striker could be introduced in between now and when it closes.
Wolves have managed simply two objectives from their opening 4 matches and right here once more was one other painful reminder of the necessity to give extra assist to Raul Jimenez.
‘I have been waiting for the new striker since my first day here,’ he added.
‘When you talk about the squad and the good things in our squad, I think we have a lesson to learn. We were in good moments, playing very well but we drew the last two games (at home).
‘We are still looking for the best solution to bring competition to Raul and bring another solution. We can see (Aleksander) Mitrovic with four goals, (Erling) Haaland with six, we see it, we need at least two good strikers in our team and we are working so hard to find that player.
‘I have plenty of confidence the player will arrive.’
