Wolves could demand huge compensation from Arsenal if they were to pursue Nuno Espirito Santo, according to the Daily Mail.
The newspaper claim on their website that after the Portuguese manager extended his stay at Molineux, Wolves didn’t disclose that they included an option for an extra year.
The Daily Mail report that Espirito Santo could stay with the club until 2022 should he take that option, and that Wolves can demand a large amount of compensation should the Gunners act on their interest in the 45-year-old.
It was revealed by 90min recently that Wolves were anxious to offer Nuno a new deal at the club, with suggestions that he was interested in holding talks at the Emirates Stadium over the vacancy.
What do we think?
Arsenal could have the upper hand in that Nuno would be tempted to take over in North London, something they should use to their advantage if the time comes.
The problem will arise over how much they could be forced to pay. The Gunners haven’t exactly been splashing the cash on players recently, apart from Nicolas Pepe, so there are faint hopes that they would do the same for a manager to take over a sinking ship.
On the pitch, things are getting worse after the 2-1 defeat to Brighton, and Arsenal are crying out for a manager who can come in and show some passion to turn things around.
Espirito Santo could definitely be that man, with the Portuguese boss full of emotion which has transpired onto his Wolves side who are currently sitting in the European qualification spots once again.
It is highly unlikely that Arsenal would justify spending a huge amount of money on a new manager, but they have gotten to the stage where they have no choice, and they should go all out for Nuno.
