Every player linked with transfer from Wolves as Lopetegui rebuilds squad

Wolves captain Ruben Neves has moved on in a £47m deal to Saudi Arabian side Al-Hilal. But which other players could follow him out of the door at Molineux?

The Neves sale won’t go the whole way to helping the club comply with Financial Fair Play restrictions so more sales are likely to help manager Julen Lopetegui rebuild the squad in preparation for the new Premier League season. Here are the Wolves players who have been linked with moves away this summer.

Jose Sa: The 30 year old Portuguese keeper is reportedly among the players Wolves would allow to leave this summer as they look to raise funds to comply with Financial Fair Play regulations. Sa has clocked up 73 Premier League starts since his £6.25m move from Olympiakos in the summer of 2021 on a five-year deal. But if he were to move on, Wolves would need to sign a replacement to compete with Dan Bentley.

Matija Sarkic : The third choice keeper is reportedly wanted by Stoke City after spending the second half of last season on loan in the Potteries. The 26 year old missed games through injuries but was restored to the Stoke side by manager Alex Neil for the final game of the season.

Conor Coady: One of four central defenders linked with interest elsewhere. The former captain is due to return to Wolves after spending last season on loan at Everton who didn’t trigger a £4.5m clause to make the move permanent. Nottingham Forest and Sheffield United are reportedly interested but Wolves sporting director Matt Hobbs has suggested Coady could still have a future at Molineux.

Hobbs told the club: “Conor is someone I’ve spoken to more or less every day since the season finished. He’s made it clear he’d like to come back, however there’s obviously a lot of interest in him, but the manager is speaking to him soon to get a feel for him and see what Conor wants. The type of player I’m talking about signing, Conor would be that type of player and he’s already our player, but it’s a conversation for him and the manager to have.”

Nathan Collins: A target for Premier League rivals Brentford. The 22 year old Republic of Ireland centre back cost Wolves £20.5m from Burnley last season and they could make a profit on him to help balance the books and fund new signings elsewhere in the side.

Max Kilman: Spurs and West Ham are reportedly interested in the 26 year old left footed centre half. Kilman has deservedly won plenty of plaudits since joining the club from Maidenhead in the summer of 2018 as an under-23 player and going on to make 107 appearances in the first team. He’s flourished alongside Craig Dawson following the experienced centre half’s arrival for a bargain £3.3m from West Ham in January.
