Wolves Opinion: Should Nuno Santo sign Maxime López?
Wolverhampton Wanderers have the likes of Ruben Neves, Joao Moutinho, Romain Saiss, Leander Dendoncker and even Morgan Gibbs-White.
However, despite that, things have looked a little off-radar at times in the middle of the park and Moutinho, at 32, cannot seem to cover every blade of grass on the field anymore.
That has at times affected the club and while the former AS Monaco star still remains among the most creative midfielders in Nuno Espirito Santo’s side, the Wolves manager needs to start looking ahead because if anything, the Portuguese star won’t be able to play too many games in the coming seasons.
Moreover, if the club reach the Europa League, things will become more difficult in terms of the work load. One man who Nuno Espirito Santo should target is Marseille star Maxime López.
The Ligue 1 club are in decent shape, and the 21-year-old Frenchman is talented.
The fact that López is a lot like Moutinho, should be something Nuno Espirito Santo should keep in mind. Not only does the young Frenchman love dictating the play, he does it with ease and class that few midfielders in the world can.
Add that to his work rate, passing range, dead-ball abilities, and technical attributes, there are few clubs who wouldn’t want him.
While he does cover a lot more distance than his teammates, López more often than not finishes games off for Marseille. It shows why Wolverhampton Wanderers do need him going forward.

But Wolves have been a rather surprising side when it comes to transfers, snatching the likes of Ruben Neves, Joao Moutinho, Rui Patricio, Diogo Jota and a few others from bigger clubs.
While that may be down to other factors, the Molineux Stadium side have a history of snatching bright young talent before bigger clubs do and they need to do that with Maxime López.
