Liverpool, Tottenham and Everton Take Note: Wolves Players to Consider
It has been a disastrous season for Wolves, with the second half of the season in particular providing heartache for the Molineux faithful. With only 25 points at the time of writing and the lowly figure of five wins this term, Terry Connor’s men will compete in the Championship next term.
However, despite poor form in the league this season, three of the Midlands club’s players are more than able to compete at the top level, and they may use Wolves’ demotion as a springboard to greater things.

The burly Scottish forward has done well since moving south of the border, firstly with Burnley and then Wolves. While at Hibs, the attacker was reportedly being monitored by Real Madrid, much to the surprise of the player and the amusement of opposition fans. But Fletcher proved to have too much quality for the SPL and like many of his countrymen moved down to England.
Fletcher’s eye for the goal has been apparent since moving to the Premier League, with the striker good in the air and strong in hold-up play. Despite a robust physique, the 25-year-old is comfortable and able with the ball at his feet, and the hitman started this campaign in strong goalscoring form.
Fletcher has suffered due to a lack of service at times, but given a chance at a bigger club such as Liverpool, he could be a bargain signing.

The Wales international goalkeeper has impressed at both the club and international level, with great shot-stopping ability and good positional sense evident this season. The 25-year-old has matured over six years at Molineux, and without doubt, he has prevented Wolves from suffering any further this term.
With a similar build to Manchester City’s Joe Hart, Hennessey has the ability to grow into one of the division’s best given additional tutelage and the chance to play in big games. Tottenham may well be in the market for a new stopper due to Brad Friedel’s age, and a move for the Welshman would be a smart and safe move in the summer.

One of the star performers in Wolves’ latest stint back in the top flight, Jarvis’ trickery and quality delivery have been one of the positive features of the side’s attacking play. Recognised internationally, Jarvis was given a run-out for England in an international friendly against Ghana in 2011, and he could play a role in the national set-up if given a chance at a bigger club.
An out-and-out wideman, Jarvis would suit a team like Everton that could do with additional width and service for their attackers. The 25-year-old shows heart and desire in Wolves’ battle against the odds, and he has also popped up with seven goals to help their cause this term.
