Wolverhampton Wanderers’ Executive Chairman Jeff Shi was out speaking to the media ahead of the weekend’s trip to the Emirates Stadium to face Arsenal, and having previously stated that Fosun’s direct investment into the team would slowly reduce after our spending so far, he reiterated that plans were being put in place to strengthen the squad in the coming January transfer window.
With a slow summer by our own more recent standards in the market, and especially in light of the injury sustained by centre-half Willy Boly, it doesn’t take much of an educated guess to think we’ll be looking for a replacement and another midfielder in the New Year and speaking to the Express and Star Shi stated that our plans would be in place by the end of November, and targets will be tracked to ensure our recent uplift in form and results continues for the rest of the season – especially as fans hope we have a lengthy Europa League campaign to deal with.
“We are always ready to invest, don’t worry about it. If we need to strengthen the squad, we have the capacity to do it – immediately, in January. We want to do the right deal. We understand our squad is still growing, but if we want to compete at a higher level, we need to give Nuno and the team more support.”
“We know where we are maybe a little bit weak. I keep talking with Nuno about it, so I think we will have a good window in January.”
Let’s see what we get.
