Having failed to sign Boulaye Dia from Salernitana in the last few days of the summer transfer window, Wolverhampton Wanderers may get another chance in January.

A lot depends on how the Serie A side feel when the time comes, but their managing director, Maurizio Milan, gave an interview to the Italian press, Corriere dello Sport more specifically, where he was asked about the Senegal international’s future.

Many will recall Wolves’ attempt of getting the player on loan with an option to buy of €18m, which was deemed rather insulting by the Italians.

That led to the player being unhappy, and a whole mess ending in the striker being fined before eventually returning to the group amid some injury issues.

He is now back, although his form isn’t quite what it was last year, with four goals in 10 appearances in the league to date.

As for a transfer in January for Dia, whether it is to Wolves or somewhere else, Maurizio Milan left the door open.

He said: “Let’s see. Milan sold Tonali. In the meantime, Dia must go back to being Dia. We saw him for a glimpse of a match in Florence. He must return to being the champion he is by helping us in these three games, then we’ll see.”
