Nuno working hard on transfers

11th January 2019, 09:52 by Aidan Perkins

Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo admits he wants to make signings this month and has not put a limit on how many players could arrive.

The Molineux chief is busy working hard in the transfer window and remains keen to try and land striker Tammy Abraham from Chelsea on loan, even though it appears he is happy to stay at Aston Villa for the second half of the campaign.

Nuno admits he has other targets as he looks to try and improve his squad and says there could be several arrivals if the right players become available.

"There are no numbers," he told reporters. "It’s a squad and a shape you have, and you have to make the balance of who you have and what you want to build regarding the future.

"It’s about who has made things well and we keep counting on, some other players not. You have to make decisions. This is how we work, but there are no numbers.”

Nuno is keen to recruit players who he knows can fit into his system but is always on the lookout for top-quality additions.

He added: "It’s not about the system, it’s about the quality of the players. A player can play in another system and be good for us."
