With a pretty quiet summer transfer window for Wolverhampton Wanderers, after a choppy start we’ve got ourselves nicely back on track in both Europe and the Premier League campaign, but given our smaller squad numbers, plenty of fans are hoping to see one or two fresh faces through the door in the New Year – and one of those could be Energie Cottbus youngster Tobias Eisenhuth.
There was some rumour mill speculation about the 18-year-old during the last international break, and big things are expected from the German, despite him only having made a single appearance for them so far this year.
He did perform well in his debut against Bayern Munich though and it seems to have only served to boost the midfielders profile further, and his manager, Claus-Dieter Wollitz, spoke to their Official Website recently to address the speculation about his future.
“The club wants to earn money. I have to put these players in the shop window. It’s all about the money in the end. It’s no secret that many clubs are watching – including Bundesliga clubs. He will make the leap.”
That’s a pretty clear, ‘come and get him’ for me and the reference to other Bundesliga clubs does suggest interest from further afield and given the riches available in the Premier League, it’s a pretty safe educated guess he has suitors here.
Whether or not Wolves do turn out to be one of those clubs remains to be seen, but with head coach Nuno Espirito Santo not being afraid to lean on youth, we’d have to be a pretty attractive prospect for him when it came to quicker first team action.
Is Eisenhuth The Kind Of Signing You Want In January?
Yes, But One For The Future
