REVEALED: Wolves board split over their summer market transfer plans

The Wolves board are split over their summer market transfer plans.

The Mirror says the ambitious Molineux club is in the process of identifying its main targets, including AC Milan striker Andre Silva. But there are serious ­talks behind-the-scenes over the number of additions to be made to Nuno Espirito Santo's squad.

Some – ­including the manager – are urging caution, but ­others at Wolves want to press ahead with building a squad that can threaten the Premier League elite.

Europa League qualification for next season is still on the agenda with only next Sunday's season finale away to Liverpool left, so those talks cannot yet be set in concrete. But owners Fosun International have made no secret of their desire to invest in players and Nuno does want to make some quality additions.

Managing director Laurie Dalrymple said: “The signings of Jonny and Raul Jimenez ­during this season and Euro 2016 winners Rui Patricio and Joao Moutinho last summer showcase our ambitions and the direction.

“I can assure supporters that the aim for next season is to build on this season's success and ­we shall provide all the tools to ­progress in the future."
