Wolverhampton Wanderers feel as though the squad ‘is in much better shape’ following their exploits in the January transfer window, journalist Dean Jones has told GiveMeSport.
The Midlands outfit have enjoyed a productive winter following the arrival of new manager Julen Lopetegui and now appear to have renewed confidence despite their precarious position in the Premier League table.
Wolverhampton Wanderers transfer news
Wolves completed a deal for versatile forward Matheus Cunha before December was even out, snapping him up from Atletico Madrid for £44 million following a tricky 18-month spell under Diego Simeone.
Lopetegui’s charges then pulled off arguably one of the best value-for-money transfers on the window by securing the signature of winger Pablo Sarabia for just £4.4 million after he was allowed to depart Paris Saint-Germain on the cheap.
Central midfielders Mario Lemina and Joao Gomes have also been brought in from Nice and Flamengo, respectively, to bolster the middle of the park at Molineux.
And experienced centre-back Craig Dawson and goalkeeper David Bentley were picked up by Wolves, adding some much-needed cover and competition in key positions.
What has Jones said about Wolves?
Jones told GMS that Wolves believe ‘this transfer window has been a real success’ and that the club are now confident of putting some daylight between themselves and the bottom three.

He said: “They’ve reached their target for the month; the squad is in much better shape now. Speaking to the club, they feel like a completely different club now from two months ago.
“They feel that this transfer window has been a real success, and they’re very confident not only of steering clear of relegation now, but actually trying to push their way up towards the mid-table.”
Who have Wolves got next?
Wolves face an out-of-form Liverpool side next time out, and they will be hoping to exact some revenge over the Reds after they dumped them out of the FA Cup third round.
Lopetegui then leads his side into a potentially pivotal encounter against relegation rivals Southampton on February 11th in a fixture that could have great consequences for both sides.
Equally intriguing fixtures against fellow struggles Bournemouth and high-flying Fulham complete Wolves’ February fixture list, and they will be hoping to pick up several positive results.
