Wolverhampton are trying to sign another striker.
England’s ‘Talk Sports’ said on the 11th (Korean time), “Wolverhampton is interested in West Ham United’s center back Craig Dawson. Another player is also aiming for, but that is Mikhail Antonio. Coach Julen Lopetegui said, “If Antonio comes, Wolverhampton’s attack will be more. I think it can be improved.”
After coach Lopetegi came, Wolverhampton improved in terms of performance. We are moving in a positive direction, but the scoring ability is disappointing. It is still the lowest scoring team in the English Premier League (EPL). If the scoring power does not revive, it can be very difficult to escape the relegation zone even if the performance has improved. Because of this, Wolverhampton focused on recruiting strikers in the winter transfer market 바카라사이트.
Wolverhampton, who signed Matheus Cunha, tried to bring in an additional striker. Antonio is on the radar. Antonio was a player who played in the lower leagues before joining West Ham. He showed great form during his time at Nottingham Forest and soared after being recruited. He served as both a winger and a forward, giving strength to West Ham’s attack. In the 2019-20 season, he played only 24 league games and scored 10 goals, scoring his first league goal in double digits.
After David Moyes took over, Antonio’s destructive power was maximized. Director Moyes made good use of Antonio, who has strengths in physical and aerial competition. He steadily scored 10 league goals each and rose to the ranks of semi-precious strikers. He was supported by the support of West Ham’s rebound, but this season is a bench resource. Gianluca Schamaca came and took away playing time and overlapped with an injury.
There are doubts in terms of skills, but he will definitely give strength to the front line. Currently, Wolverhampton lacks the frontline resources they deserve. Raul Jimenez and Diego Costa are underperformed and Sasha Kalajic is out due to injury. The weight of the front line fell, resulting in a decrease in overall attack power. Antonio is a good recruiting target for Wolverhampton, whose goal is to escape the relegation zone through increased attack power.
What blocks the transfer is West Ham’s current situation. West Ham, like Wolverhampton, is also facing a relegation crisis. England’s ‘Express and Star’ claimed, “West Ham sees Wolverhampton as a competitor in the relegation zone. So the negotiation itself is likely to be difficult. Even if a transfer is made, it will only be possible if a replacement comes.”
