Wolves are in need of at least one new ‘keeper this summer.

Carl Ikeme would appear to be the continued no.1 going forward but he needs someone to act as back up, and to challenge him, now that Emiliano Martinez has returned to parent club Arsenal after his season-long loan.

Aaron McCarey has also been released at the end of his contract, he’s already fixed himself up with Scottish Premiership side Ross County.

Recent reports, which were covered in the Express & Star, have linked Kenny Jackett with an interest in two options? Shrewsbury’s Jayson Leutwiler, linked with Middlesbrough, Cardiff and Charlton in January, and funnily enough Charlton’s Nick Pope, who has had interest from Burnley and Celtic, could be looked at this summer….

Leutwiler has been offered a new deal by the League 1 club but given the rumoured interest the former Switzerland U21 international has in him if he does remain at the Greenhous Meadow it could be a surprise so a move from Shrewsbury to Molineux on a free transfer could be on, and would represent a good deal wouldn’t it?

An alternative could be Charlton’s 24-year-old Pope.

He may well leave Charlton following their Championship relegation but with a number of topflight clubs and Championship ones linked with him this could prove the harder deal to push through, especially with him under contract with the Addicks for a couple of years and unlikely to be offloaded on the cheap.

If either arrive remains to be seen but a senior ‘keeper, aside from Ikeme, is a must for Wolves as only youngsters Jon Flatt and Harry Burgoyne remain, with loan exits for further experience for one (or both) expected next season.
