After securing a deal for Trincao, Wolverhampton Wanderers have reached an agreement for the transfer of Hungarian right-back Bendeguz Bolla, according to Fabrizio Romano. The fullback becomes Wolves’ fourth signing of the summer under new manager Bruno Lage as they look to get back to competing in the top half of the Premier League.
With Raul Jimenez edging closer and close to a return, too, Wolves should have no problem competing for the Europa League places again. The Mexican will likely form an attacking trio with Trincao and Pedro Neto, perhaps leaving Adama Traore on the bench as an impact sub.
Wolves Secure Deal for Bendeguz Bolla
Bolla Can Finally Fill Doherty Gap
Ever since letting Matt Doherty leave for Tottenham Hotspur, Wolves have struggled to make an impact down the right-hand side. Nelson Semedo has tried to replace Doherty, but he simply isn’t good enough.
Going forward, the former Barcelona man failed to build a strong enough partnership with Traore and this limited the Spanish winger last season. Without an overlapping fullback, Traore could not find the necessary space to drive towards. Bruno Lage will be hoping to see Bolla put an end to that problem.
At the age of 21, the Hungarian has years ahead of him to improve as a player at Molinuex. If he gains the starting place from the off, he should be able to hit the ground running. Successfully combine with Traore as well and he will become a fan favourite very quickly. Bolla’s name may not be one known across Europe but, if Wolves’ track record is anything to go by, it won’t be long until it is.
The transfer is a relatively risk free one and one that should improve Wolves ahead of the Premier League season in August. Bruno Lage has certainly hit the ground running this summer.
