Wolverhampton Wanderers striker Leo Bonatini was a massive revelation at the Molinuex during his initial loan arrival at the club on a loan spell from Al Hilal.
The 25-year-old Brazilian took hardly any time to settle under head coach Nuno Espirito Santo and having scored on his debut back in 2017, he quickly added eleven more before the end of December. But despite plenty of effort in following appearances, his goal touch had simply deserted him. Rather surprisingly we completed the permanent option for life back in the Premier League, and he did make nine appearances (one goal scored) before we farmed him out to Nottingham Forest in the January window.
His spell at the City Ground was pretty disastrous, with only five appearances in total made – and he didn’t feature at all after March 9th.
Having paid £3.6million for him, we should easily make that back though if we can find a willing buyer.
With his future clearly no longer with us, a report from Turkish outlet Fotospor claims that former Fenerbahce defender Luciano has now offered the club the player.
They don’t make clear whether this would be a permanent or loan deal, but whenever Fenerbahce are involved these days it always seems to be a loan deal, but given his more recent form a loan may be our best option.
