There’s no limit on Wolves’ Premier League potential, sporting director Kevin Thelwell stated, as the club looks to build a team to match Nuno Espirito Santo’s ambitions.

Thelwell is set for a busy summer with Wolves likely to splash the cash.

The club’s hierarchy are aiming to at the very least avoid a relegation battle.

And Thelwell said: “The dream is to be achieving as much as we possibly can – who knows where that ends?

“I wouldn’t want to put a lid on it because my view is we should reach as high as we can and not put a ceiling on it in some respects.

“We’ve got a really strong platform and foundation. I believe we’ve got a lot of players who are capable of playing in the Premier League already embedded in the squad, in a really clear football philosophy.

“If we can get the profiles of any new players right, we give ourselves a real chance of doing very well next year.”

Nuno has already managed in the Champions League, while the likes of Ruben Neves, Diogo Jota and Ivan Cavaleiro have played in Europe’s premier competition.

Thelwell said the club must match the lofty ambitions of their players and Nuno.


“(Ruben) is a top player and he’s going to play at the top level,” Thelwell added.

“What we need to do is try and match his ambition and match Nuno’s ambition as a Champions League coach.

“We’re trying to create and develop a squad that matches the ambitions of our coaching team and our players and then also matches the ambition of Fosun.

“Their vision is to be a top Premier League team so we have to produce.


“We’re looking forward and relishing that challenge.

“We need to make sure we’re not only capable of playing in Premier League but of achieving something in the Premier League.

“The vision is to become a strong Premier League outfit.”
