Julen Lopetegui could leave Wolverhampton Wanderers over lack of transfer activity

Julen Lopetegui is considering his position as Wolverhampton Wanderers manager over the lack of transfer activity this summer. 

The 56-year-old was appointed in November when Wolves were mired in the relegation battle.

He inspired them to an upturn in form, guiding them to victories over Liverpool, Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea

They ultimately secured a very respectable 13th-place finish, with seven points separating them from the drop zone. 

However, Lopetegui is now considering his future at Molineux and could leave with less than two weeks remaining before the new season starts, per the Mirror

He is reportedly dissatisfied with the club’s transfer business and believes their squad isn’t strong enough to compete in the English top flight this season.

Wolves have already sold Ruben Neves, Raul Jimenez and Nathan Collins to Al-Hilal, Fulham and Brentford without signing replacements. 

Apart from making Matheus Cunha and Boubacar Traore deals permanent, they have only brought in Matt Doherty and Tom King during the 2023 transfer window

They are also likely to miss out on Bristol City midfielder Alex Scott who looks close to joining Bournemouth. 

The Midlands outfit will begin their Premier League campaign when they face Manchester United at Old Trafford on August 14.

They also play Brighton & Hove Albion and Liverpool in their first five league matches.
