Sport Fosun buy Toney in £110m spending spree, Neves axed: How Wolves may look under Lage - opinion
Reporter shares "bleak" Wolves update after Nuno resigns, fans should be seething - opinion
Nuno Santo may have left Wolves due to a lack of spending available at Molineux this summer.They were dealt a major blow when it was announced that Nuno Espirito Santo would step down from his role as the club’s manager after their final game of the season on Sunday.
With Nuno Espirito Santo no longer the manager of Wolverhampton Wanderers, Fosun and Jeff Shi are busy trying to find a replacement.
It’s thought that Bruno Lage is the, with the Jorge Mendes client believed to be in negotiations with Wolves.
If he does agree terms at Molineux, it would be an interesting appointment for a number of reasons. Hiswork with Ruben Dias and Fabio Silva proves that he knows how to develop a young player, so it could be game-changing for the young talents coming through the academy at Compton if he is hired.
Shades of Nuno: Shi will condemn Wolves to more mediocrity by hiring stubborn 49 y/o - opinion
Wolves are lining up former Nottingham Forest boss Sabri Lamouchi as their new manager.It was a surprising reveal but it comes at a time where the club are at a crossroads.
Lage may face an uphill task in the transfer market, with Wolvesto sell some of their best players before they can afford to spend on new recruits.
With that in mind, how could the Portuguese’s starting XI look if he takes over at Molineux? Here’s our fun prediction…
With Ruben Neves linked with adeparture, we’re tipping the midfielder to take his leave when the window opens.
We also think that, in order to fund new recruits, Wolves could sell Adama Traore. They’re into extend the Spaniard’s deal in the Midlands but are yet to reach an agreement.
If those two are sold, it will give the Old Gold a wonderful opportunity to spend.
Replacing Neves in midfield is Sporting Lisbon midfielder Joao Palhinha, a player Wolves have been tracking for a year now. He could set the Old Gold back a fee of.

Wolves to speak with former Benfica managerNuno Espirito Santo stood down as Wolves manager this past weekend after four years at Molineux, leaving the club looking for a new manager this summer.
With Willian Jose heading back to Real Sociedad following the conclusion of his loan deal, we anticipate Lage and Fosun to sign a new striker.
They have beenwith Carlos Vinicius, who at Benfica, but we believe Ivan Toney would be the better addition. Brentford are seeking a fee of in order to relinquish the grasp on their star striker.
In scoringgoals for the Bees this season, he’s a player on whom plenty of Premier League clubs – including – have had a keen eye.
Two new wingers could arrive, with theArnaut Danjuma of Bournemouth with a switch and Goncalo Guedes – a player for whom Wolves are willing to put (£17.2m) on the table – heading to Molineux.
Other permanent additions arrive in the form of on-loan duo Vitinha and Rayan Ait-Nouri. Wolves possess the option to buy the former for(£14m), while the latter’s option stands at around the (£13m) mark.
All in all, that would see Wolves spend a colossal £110m. It’s not completely out of the equation, with a number of players, including Neves, Traore and Raul Jimenez allwith exits from Molineux.
