Wolves and Lille struggle to find a loan deal for the midfielder
According to recent reports, Bruno Lage’s Wolverhampton Wanderers are struggling to reach an agreement with French club Lille over the possible summer transfer of midfielder Renato Sanches.
That’s according to a recent report from The Athletic, which claim the midfielder now faces a nervous 10-hour wait to find out whether or not he will return to the Premier League.
No good news regarding Renato Sanches. Deal as things stand, clubs too far apart on the loan deal (especially the option next summer). ten hours to go #WWFC https://t.co/4CUZtvlwGu

Sanches, 24, joined Lille in 2019 following an £18million move from German giants Bayern Munich.
Since arriving in France, Sanches has played 60 games in all competitions, directly contributing to 10 goals along the way.
However, seemingly struggling to cement his place among Ligue 1’s top midfielders, Sanches could still find himself on the move.
One club heavily linked with the Portuguese international’s arrival is Premier League side Wolves.
Having previous Premier League experience following his brief loan spell with Swansea in 2018, Sanches could still prove to be a shrewd deal for any club in England’s top flight.

However, reaching an agreement with only a few hours in the window proves difficult for the Wolves.
Athletic note that the two clubs are struggling to agree on the terms of a permanent transfer which could come into effect next summer.
Fans will now have to wait to see if the two parties can strike a deal down the line.
