Bright Enobakhare’s future is uncertain at Wolverhampton Wanderers as he’s struggled for first-team football of late and is out of contract in the summer. The 21-year-old is coming off the back of a failed loan spell at Wigan Athletic (August 8, 2019 – January 2, 2020) and is out of favour under Nuno Espirito Santo.
Since rising through the youth ranks to the Wolves first-team in 2015, Enobakhare has gone on to make 49 appearances in all competitions, scoring and creating only four goals. His last outing came in Wolves’ 3-0 defeat to Sunderland (May 6, 2018), but the Nigerian u23 international has been on the periphery ever since.
Some supporters want Enobakhare to be retained past 2020, but his snub from Wolves’ Europa League squad may be the final straw. The 21-year-old was left out by Nuno and now finds himself behind Raul Jimenez, Leonardo Campana and Renat Dadashov in the striker pecking order. Even Benny Ashley-Seal has made the matchday squad this season.
It’s been nearly two years since the centre-forward made his last appearance for Wolves, so his impending exit isn’t much of a surprise. Enobakhare is surplus to requirements and failed to deliver when called upon in the past, so a move away over the summer will suit all parties.
