Wolves switched to the Spanish vector of development?

Premier League underdog Wolverhampton have signed a contract with Spain and PSG player Pablo Sarabia! Thus, the Wolves will try to save the season, which is developing very unsuccessfully for them.

Sarabia has a solid career behind him - in its course, he defended the colors of Getafe, Sevilla, PSG, Sporting Lisbon and the Spain national team. His peak fell on the 2018/19 campaign. Back then, Pablo provided 13 assists in one league season and scored 12 goals in 33 matches for the Andalusians. After that success, the player bought PSG, but he failed to impose worthy competition on the more status Mbappe, Neymar, Cavani, Icardi and Messi.

Sarabia spent the previous season at Sporting CP, where he scored 15 goals and helped Lisbon qualify for the Champions League. It became obvious that this striker was not made for top clubs. As soon as PSG received an offer to sell the 30-year-old Spaniard, he immediately agreed. Plus, Pablo himself probably plans to spend the rest of his career with playing practice - he has already won a lot of trophies.

In recent years, Wolverhampton have established themselves as one of the least spectacular clubs in the Premier League. Yes, the defense of the Wolves is more or less fine, but their attack is frankly not impressive. Earlier, Mexican Raul Jimenez was playing with might and main, but after a serious skull injury, he didn’t manage to reach the previous level. Other Wolves’ offensive players aren't impressive either, including summer rookies Guedes, Kalajdzic and Diego Costa. And the club's best goalscorer with five accurate shots is Daniel Podense - perhaps the only truly effective player in the creative line.

As you can see, 56-year-old Julen Lopetegui got a pretty good team, which still needs to be trained to create and realize their scoring chances. Perhaps the Wolves will get rid of Guedes this winter and try to make Sarabia the main forward. Like it or not, he has plenty of experience - Pablo reached the later stages of the Champions League with PSG, and also enchanted with the Spain national team at Euro 2020. The Wolves paid only 5 million euros for him, which is quite a bit in the current realities of the transfer market.

As part of Wolverhampton, Pablo Sarabia will definitely get game practice, and the club itself would somehow manage to avoid relegation due to strong defense. However, we doubt that the Spaniard will reach his peak form - most likely, the best period of his career is behind him.
