Welcome to BirminghamLive’s coverage of all things Wolverhampton Wanderers ahead of tonight’s clash with Manchester City.
Eintracht Frankfurt striker Andre Silva says transfer speculation linking him Wolves and Manchester United proves his career is on the right track, writes Leigh Curtis.
The Portuguese joined Frankfurt from AC Milan last summer having been on a season-long loan with the Bundesliga side.
Silva was a huge hit last term as he scored 12 goals and registered four assists in 25 league games, but has already found the net 19 times this season in 21 outings since making the switch permanent.
“I’ve heard rumours, but that is it,” he said.
“Rumours are rumours. At the end of this season, it’s something that gives me more motivation to work – it’s a sign that what I have accomplished has borne fruit, and the path has been good.”
Silva is said to be worth around 30 million Euros, but the forward joked that was a bargain.
If the term ‘free hit’ is still a thing, Wolverhampton Wanderers’ trip to Manchester City isn’t far off being just that, writes Alex Dicken.
Wolves are unbeaten in their last five Premier League games, with a point at Newcastle United on Saturday nudging them to 34.
With relegation no longer a serious threat and the top seven most probably beyond this Wolves side, Nuno Espirito Santo’s team can play without fear in their final 12 matches.
But fear is the most appropriate word for opponents when it comes to Man City at present. Pep Guardiola’s side have dismantled their last 20 opponents in all competitions to embark upon a remarkable winning streak.
