Dream Wolves line-up featuring Tammy Abraham alongside Jimenez
According to a report in Evening Standard, Premier League newcomers Wolves are confident that they will complete the loan deal of Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham by this week. The Englishman is currently out on loan at Championship club Aston Villa, where he has scored 16 goals in half a season.
However, the London-based club inserted a break clause in the deal, allowing them to recall the forward during the January transfer window. Moreover, they now have an option to send him elsewhere for the rest of this season.
The Old Gold are in the process to get the 21-year-old for the next few months at the least. If they do strike the deal, which is a possibility, here’s how manager Nuno Espirito Santo can line his team up for the second part of this campaign.
Dream Wolves XI
Manager: Nuno Espirito Santo
Rui Patricio (GK)
The experienced Portuguese has been a great addition to the team this season.
Ryan Bennett (RCB)
He has been terrific at the back in a wide centre-back position. Wolves have a pretty good defensive record, and Bennett is a part of it.
Conor Coady (CB)
The captain leads from the front and marshalls the back-line pretty well. His long diagonals towards the flying wing-backs to start the attacks are a signatory.
Willy Boly (LCB)
Another player who has impressed us all in the first six months of the Premier League, Boly is a very talented defender and he is important to this Wolves side.
Jonny Otto (LWB)
The right-footed left wing-back is doing more than a good job for Nuno’s men. The Atletico Madrid man loves going forward on every occasion.
Ruben Neves (CM)
The youngster has been a sensation in the middle of the park. His passing and long-range shooting is just fantastic.
Joao Moutinho (CM)
Bought last summer, the experienced Portuguese brings calmness and sturdiness to the midfield. His game intelligence helps the team in a massive way.
Matt Doherty (RWB)
The buccaneering wing-back is like a winger who can defend as well. Wolves’ attacking endeavor gets set with a Doherty run into the opposition half.
Helder Costa (CAM)
He can play in the hole behind the two strikers and is a real threat on the counter-attack, with pace and direct running into the opposition’s defensive territory.
Raul Jimenez (ST)
The Mexican has played as the lone striker and has done a good job thus far. Having an attacking partner like Tammy Abraham would suit him well.
Tammy Abraham (ST)
The Chelsea man could add goals, run in behind the opposition’s backline and be a genuine aerial threat. He would be perfect to play in a counter-attacking system under Nuno Espirito Santo.
