Ex-Nottingham Forest boss Sabri Lamouchi has been offered to Premier League outfit Wolves by super-agent Jorge Mendes.

According to Get French Football News, the French boss is being offered as a potential replacement for Nuno Espirito Santo.

The Portuguese incumbent stepped down as the Wolves boss following yesterday’s 2-1 defeat to Manchester United.

Wolves finished the campaign in 13th place and the challenge now is to find a manager who can take them forward.

Mendes has been heavily involved with the recruitment at Wolves in recent years and is now helping them appoint a new boss.

Lamouchi is currently in charge of Al Duhail where he has enjoyed some success since taking charge.

The report claims that Lamouchi is also keen on taking the vacant position at Ligue 1 outfit Montpellier.

How has this link emerged?

Well, Lamouchi is represented by Mendes and it could be a case of genuine speculation.

He has a 64% win ratio in Qatar but would probably jump at the chance to return to English football.

The challenge of reviving Wolves is an exciting one and it’d be a role he’d dearly love to get his teeth stuck into.

It could, however, be an idle rumour built on foundations of Mendes and Lamouchi being close.

Will it happen?

It does seem unlikely that Wolves will turn to Lamouchi as a replacement for Espirito Santo.

His CV isn’t exactly glowing and Wolves might prefer a more tried and tested option as the man to lead the team into the future.

Funnier things have happened in football but it would be a real surprise if the West Midlands-based outfit turned to the former Forest boss.

Could Lamouchi take Wolves forward?

Based on his time at Forest, it’d perhaps be too much of a risk.

The Reds under the ex-Ivory Coast head coach were sometimes brilliant but they fell away badly towards the end of 2019/20.

His style was very conservative and at times Forest were dull and unimaginative.

Despite that, the team did get plenty of good results under Lamouchi and for that he should be rewarded.

Wolves boast a squad full of good players and perhaps an organised approach under the ex-Forest boss could help the club move forward.

If he does get the Molineux gig, Reds fans will certainly monitor their progress with intrigue.
