An update has emerged regarding Wolves’ chances of signing Slavia Prague forward Lukas Masopust.

What’s the talk?

According to 90min, Wolves are one of the clubs who have been offered the chance to sign the winger this summer. West Ham, Crystal Palace, Watford, Brighton, Leicester and Newcastle have also been told that they can sign him before the end of the window.

The report claims that he could be available for a fee in the region of £6m, with Slavia Prague willing to cash in on the Czech international.

Fans will be fuming

Wolves fans will surely be fuming if the club take up the offer of signing Masopust in the weeks to come. The forward is not good enough for the current squad and supporters could well be aghast if he is brought in as a new signing ahead of the 2020/21 campaign.

Imagine him and Jimenez: Wolves must swoop for £13m dynamo compared to Ronaldo - opinion

  Imagine him and Jimenez: Wolves must swoop for £13m dynamo compared to Ronaldo - opinion Wolves are reportedly interested in signing AC Milan forward Rafael Leao this summer as Bruno Lage looks to make his mark on the first team squad at Molineux. What’s the story? According to Italian outlet Gazzetta dello Sport (as reported by Sport Witness), the Italian giants will either sell Leao or Jens Petter Hauge over […]According to Italian outlet Gazzetta dello Sport (as reported by Sport Witness), the Italian giants will either sell Leao or Jens Petter Hauge over the coming months, with a €15m (£13m) asking price mooted for the Portuguese striker.

Bruno Lage needs to avoid his first howler as Wolves manager by rejecting the chance to land the 28-year-old, targeting alternative attacking options instead.

Masopust has never played outside of the Czech Republic, with more than 200 appearances in the Fortuna Liga throughout his career to date. The right-winger has 15 goals and 16 assists in 101 games for Slavia Prague in all competitions, which is hardly an impressive record in a division which ranks well below the Premier League in UEFA’s association club coefficient.

In 13 games for his country during the 2020/21 campaign, Masopust averaged a dismal WhoScored rating of 6.45 as he failed to register a single goal or assist from out wide. This suggests that he doesn’t stand out at international level either, along with his fairly average rate of goal contributions for Slavia Prague.

Where are they now? Wolves’ final XI before the 2016 Fosun takeover

  Where are they now? Wolves’ final XI before the 2016 Fosun takeover A *lot* has changed at Wolves.In that time they have gone from the mid-table of the Championship to an established top-flight side, with a team featuring an array of international stars and challenging the Premier League elite.

Why would he be a good addition for Wolves in the Premier League, then? If he is not able to score or assist regularly in the Czech Republic, then it seems unlikely that he would arrive at Molineux and become a potent presence for Lage’s side next season.

At the age of 28, he is not an up-and-comer who would arrive with potential. He is in the peak years of his career and may not have much room left to develop, which is why Wolves must avoid this deal. Fans won’t be happy if an underperforming winger comes through the door for £6m this summer and it would represent a first blunder at the helm for Lage…

AND in other news, Wolves must act on long-standing interest in “extraordinary” beast in cut-price deal…

'From their point of view' - Journalist drops interesting Fosun claim at Wolves .
Wolves journalist Liam Keen has given his take on what the expectations might be for the club heading into this season from the perspective of owners Fosun. Wolves were certainly brought crashing down to earth last season when it came to their time in the Premier League. Having experienced the highs of back-to-back 7th-placed finishes […]Wolves were certainly brought crashing down to earth last season when it came to their time in the Premier League. Having experienced the highs of back-to-back 7th-placed finishes in the division, they slumped back down to 13th, not helped by the loss of key man Raul Jimenez in November.
