21-year-old Spanish youth international Rafa Mir was signed from Valencia by Wolverhampton Wanderers back in the January 2018 window as very much one for the future.
Having made his full debut in the FA Cup, and three more substitute showings in head coach Nuno Espirito Santo’s first team squad, he spent last season out on loan with Las Palmas and it was a pretty good spell by all accounts as he returned seven goals in 19 starting appearances and eleven showings from the substitutes bench.
With him heading back to us now as pre-season training slowly comes back into play, plenty of Wolves fans are hoping he now gets to have a proper breakthrough season with us so we can truly judge his potential, but it sounds like there’s already plenty of interest from other clubs in tempting him into a loan deal once again.
Spanish outlet Marco have suggested that Granada are now interested in him as they won promotion back to the top flight last year, and with some speculation that Las Palmas would like him back, making the step up to La Liga would be an interesting prospect for the youngster.
If there is an opportunity for him to test himself at that level after a year in the second tier, you’d think Mir and Wolves would jump at the opportunity for his development.
