KRC Genk’s head coach accepts that there is a ‘real chance’ Mike Tresor Ndayishimiye will be on the move this summer with Wolves one of his many Premier League admirers.
Considering that no team in England’s top flight scored fewer than Wolverhampton Wanderers’31 goals in 2022/23, you probably don’t need a UEFA A-license to realise what Mike Tresor would bring to Molineux.
Only one player in the whole of Europe could better Tresor’s tally of 24 assists in all competitions last term. A figure which pits the silky, set-piece specialist ahead of Kevin de Bruyne, Lionel Messi, Antoine Griezmann, Martin Odegaard, Bruno Fernandes and co.
Brentford, Brighton and Nottingham Forest have all scouted Tresor (90Min). Wolves, however, arguably need the former Willem II schemermore than most. Especially with Daniel Podence potentially following Ruben Neves out the door, Pablo Sarabia yet to adapt, and Pedro Neto a shadow of his pre-injury best.
Genk, meanwhile, are under no illusions that – after a truly outstanding campaign – stopping Tresor from making the move to one of Europe’s top-five leagues may be beyond them.
We’ll see. There is a real chance that he will leave,” manager Wouter Vrancken tells Sporza. “Six starting players also left last year.”
Tresor scored eight goals of his own last term. The Belgium international does much of his best work when cutting in from the left-hand side. His arrival, meanwhile, could open the door for Julen Lopetegui to repurpose Matheus Nunes in his favoured box-to-box role in the centre of the park.
