Wolves sent Premier League ‘stand still’ warning as transfer worries grow

1 minute read

Former Liverpool and Tottenham midfielder Danny Murphy has revealed he is “worried for Wolves” ahead of the new Premier League season.

Wolves have lost seven key senior players this summer, and there are fears about whether they will have enough to compete in the top flight this term. It comes amid public frustration from manager Julen Lopetegui, which Murphy has addressed, though he reveals the team will “have enough to be safe” in his opinion.

Wolves start their Premier League season away at Manchester United on Monday, August 14 and then host Brighton five days later in another difficult game. More inbound transfers are needed to convince Murphy that Wolves can be safe in mid-table this season.

“I’m worried for Wolves,” Murphy wrote for the Daily Mail. “They are having a huge turnover of players. They have lost their talisman in the middle of the park in Ruben Neves. They sold Nathan Collins to Brentford, which surprised me because I thought he was a real talent.

“Julen Lopetegui has made his frustrations felt. They will probably still have enough to be safe but there’s not enough incomings to suggest they will be comfortable in midtable like recent seasons. As Leicester proved, you can’t stand still for long in the Premier League.”
