Liverpool, Tottenham and Everton take note – Wolves are being relegated, but three top players are good enough to excel in the Premier League

It has been a disastrous season for Wolves, with the second half of the season in particular providing heartache for the Molineux faithful. With only 25 points at the time of writing, and the lowly figure of five wins this term, Terry Connor’s men will compete in the Championship next term. However, despite poor form in the league this season, three of the Midlands club’s players are more than able at the top level, and may use Wolves’ demotion as a springboard to greater things.

Steven Fletcher

Position – Striker
Valuation – £5 million
Take note – Liverpool

The burly Scottish forward has done well since moving south of the border, firstly with Burnley and then Wolves. Whilst at Hibs the attacker was reportedly being monitored by Real Madrid, much to the surprise of the player and the amusement of opposition fans, but Fletcher proved to have too much quality for the SPL and like many of his countrymen moved down to England.

Fletcher’s eye for goal has been apparent since moving to the Premier League, with the striker good in the air and strong in hold up play. Despite a robust physique, the 25-year-old is comfortable and able with the ball at his feet, and the hitman started this campaign in strong goalscoring form. Fletcher has suffered due to a lack of service at times, but given a chance at a bigger club such as Liverpool, could be a bargain signing.

Wayne Hennessey

Position – Goalkeeper
Valuation – £7 million
Take note – Tottenham

The Wales international goalkeeper has impressed both at club and international level, with great  shot-stopping ability and good positional sense evident this season. The 25-year-old has matured over six years at Molineux, and without doubt has prevented Wolves from suffering any further this term.

With a similar build to Manchester City’s Joe Hart, Hennessey has the ability to grow into one of the division’s best given additional tutelage and the chance to play in big games. Tottenham may well be in the market for a new stopper due to Brad Friedel’s age, and a move for the Welshman would be a smart and safe move in the summer.

Matt Jarvis

Position: Winger
Valuation: £6 million
Take note: Everton

One of the star performers in Wolves’ latest stint back in the top flight, Jarvis’ trickery and quality delivery have been one of the positive features of the side’s attacking play. Recognised internationally, Jarvis was given a run-out for England in an international friendly against Ghana in 2011  and could play a role in the national set-up if given a chance at a bigger club.

An out-and-out wideman, Jarvis would suit a team like Everton who could do with additional width and service for their attackers. The 25-year-old shows heart and desire in Wolves’ battle against the odds, and has also popped up with seven goals to help their cause this term.
