Wolves Rumours Roundup: Interest in Divock Origi, Tyrese Campbell & Nuno’s Transfer Confidence

Ahh, the transfer window.

Home to bizarre rumours, more gossiping than you could ever have wished to see on Gossip Girl (avoid), speculation, frenzied panic, acceptance, denial and, in truth, absolute insanity.

But when the rumours are about your side making a signing, suddenly it becomes a lot more fascinating and worth listening to. So, we here at 90min thought we’d cut out the middle men for all you Wolves supporters, and bring you all the latest thrills, spills and, erm, rumours.

So let’s do it…

Divock Origi Remains Wolves Target

This first rumour is one that first ​bubbled to the surface last January, when Liverpool striker Divock Origi was failing to command a regular place at Anfield.

Not much has changed since then for Origi, apart from his status at the club being elevated from ‘handyman who scored that winner against Everton’ to ‘handyman who scored that winner against Everton, crown jewel in that epic demolition of Barcelona and general Champions League extraordinaire’.

Because despite those achievements, he’s still barely getting a kick under Jurgen Klopp – leading to renowned Wolves journo Tim Nash to suggest on ​WolvesBite that Origi is still a target for Nuno and the boys.

He did, however, quash any talk of Thomas Lemar, Jarrod Bowen or Max Eggestein arriving at Molineux.

Wolves Chasing Tyrese Campbell – But They’re Not Alone

Tyrese Campbell

Everyone remembers Kevin Campbell, right? Actually, my colleague ​Sean Walsh probably doesn’t – but that’s a conversation for another time.

Because here, we’re going to talk about his son Tyrese, currently plying his trade in the Championship for fallen pottery giants Stoke. The 20-year-old is out of contract in the summer, and Wolves – along with Crystal Palace and Bournemouth – are thought to be keen, thanks to ​talkSPORT for this one, on having a chat to him about a summer switch.

A compensation fee would need to be agreed, decided by tribunal, if Campbell does end up moving, but he’s hardly likely to break the bank.

Oh, and how many goals has he scored this season in all competitions, you ask? Six. The answer is six.

Rafa Mir Leaves Wolves to Join Huesca on 18-Month Loan Deal

One deal that is definitely happening involves young ​Wolves forward Rafa Mir.

He’s been on loan at Nottingham Forest this season, but it’s fair to say that things haven’t panned out too well for the Spain Under-21 international. So, instead, he’s heading back to home comforts with Huesca – with an 18-month loan, a splash of sunshine and Segunda Division football awaiting him. 

All of that, incidentally, has been ​confirmed by the club, minus the sunshine.

Nuno Confident Wolves Will Land Transfer Targets


January is a notoriously hard time to sign players, we all know that. As much as we’d all like upheaval (at times), the reality is that clubs aren’t willing to let many of their stars leave in fear of not being able to replace them.

Don’t believe me? Well, speak to Nuno – as he’s essentially come out and said the same thing, in quotes carried by ​The Independent.

“I’m confident, I don’t think on ‘ifs’,” he said. “It’s very difficult for all the clubs. It’s a ​transfer window which isn’t the best one.

“Many players are involved in their teams. Sometimes you want a target and they are not available because they are playing. Sometimes you want things to move faster than they do. It’s a tough moment but we’re working on it.”

But if anyone can get us who we need, it’s Nuno – and probably Jorge Mendes too, the lovely lovely man that he is.
