Wolverhampton Wanderers are set to embark on a new era under recently appointed manager Julen Lopetegui, with the sole aim of staying in the Premier League for next season.
The Old Gold sit bottom of the table after a disastrous run of just two wins in their first 15 matches and the Spaniard could face his toughest managerial challenge yet.
Should Wolves sign Vega?
No, not convinced
With the World Cup break coming at an ideal time for the club, the 56-year-old will assess his squad and look to the January transfer window to see which areas of his squad need strengthening.
Wolves have recently been linked with Alexis Vega and Lopetegui could land his first dream signing by bringing the Mexican to England, especially if he plays in Qatar.
Indeed, Pete O’Rourke spoke to Soccer FanCast regarding Wolves’ interest in the winger, saying: “Yes, great opportunity in this World Cup to watch some players. Vega has been a target for wolves for a while now.
“So they will be keeping a close eye to see how he can compete with the world’s top flight at the World Cup as well. If he shines at the tournament, I’m sure Wolves will be desperate to get a deal done as soon as possible.
Molineux’s side urgently need a rejuvenation in their attacking department, with the club having scored just eight league goals so far, the lowest tally in the division.
Vega, who plays for Deportivo Guadalajara, has registered 47 goal contributions for his club – 24 goals and 23 assists – suggesting he could be the answer to Lopetegui’s prayers.
Not only that, but the 24-year-old also has pedigree at international level, scoring six times in 23 appearances for Mexico, and he certainly has the potential to shine in Qatar.
O’Rourke even called the player ‘all-rounder’ recently when discussing the 24-year-old with Soccer FanCast and that could be another plus for the 56-year-old.
Indeed, the Wolves faithful will be watching the player closely at the World Cup and if he manages to maintain his club form in the tournament, the winger’s potential signing by Lopetegui could represent a dream first signing for him. the Spaniard.
