Julen Lopetegui has reentered talks with Wolves and the Premier League club are quietly confident of a breakthrough with the Spaniard in the coming days. If talks progress, Wolves expect him to be in position by the beginning of the World Cup break.
The 56-year-old rejected a move to Molineux last month because of his father’s ill health but Wolves are hopeful this will be third time lucky having been encouraged by positive noises emerging from Lopetegui’s camp.
