The Italian media brings some news today on Wolverhampton Wanderers’ potential quest for a new manager.

Website Tutto Mercato Web is the one saying the Molineux side are currently thinking and studying the chances of signing Gennaro Gattuso for the next season.

It’s said the Napoli boss could be ‘more than an idea’ in case Wolves really decide to replace Nuno Espírito Santo at the end of the season.

Even though the report doesn’t bring any information on the possible sacking of the Portuguese manager, Gattuso is named as a ‘target’ for the Premier League side.

There’s one reason why the rumour makes sense, and that’s a report from the Italian media back from April 2019.

At that time, newspaper Gazzetta Dello Sport said Jorge Mendes approached Gattuso with a job in England, back when Rafa Benítez was still at Newcastle United.

With the agent’s clear influence at Wolves, we only need to connect the dots to see why Gattuso’s arrival in the Premier League could be straight at Wolves.
