With the January transfer window fast approaching, the recently appointed Wolves head coach Paul Lambert finds himself having had far less time than he would have wanted to figure out his transfer policy at a crucial time of year that could determine whether Wolves can cement their Championship status for another year, or perhaps even look higher up the table towards the dreamy heights of the play-off places.
New Wolves manager Paul Lambert has stated that his team is in a relegation battle at the moment.
Indeed the club has not managed to win a single game for the past 9 matches, and it is important that things change quickly if they want to keep their chances of staying in the Championship alive.
The coach of the Spanish national team has confirmed that he was close to clinching a managerial position with the Wolves just before the Spanish Football Federation indicated their interest in him.
Julen Lopetegui who was made coach of the Spanish team during summer said he had been in contact with the owners of the Sky Bet championship club, Fosun International, a Chinese consortium that had recently bought the club in summer.
This was the view of the 27 year old who moved during the summer from Reims to Wolves for a transfer sum of £2million.
Since moving, he has appeared for Wolves nine different times and has already scored twice.
Wolverhampton coach Walter Zenga is a man under pressure owing to poor results at the start of the campaign, but David Edwards claims that the manager has the full support of the squad.
It is not normal that a manager receives a vote of confidence from the playing staff. Edwards backing the manager will have substantial consequences given that there are rumours about the club preparing to sack the manager. Appointed only in the summer, the Italian has so far seen the club claim only four wins out of the 14 league matches. The club has not won any game in October and one has to go to the win against Brentford towards the end of September for their last victory.
