It makes sense. From our perspective, it’s obvious that Divock has lost something. I don’t know if it’s motivation, but it could be that. Being eternal second knife wears you probably down over time. If Wolves are willing to pay around 20 millions for him, it probably makes sense to let him go.
Also Divock is a player who needs to play regularly. His best times for us always came when he played a regular amount of minutes in the team, week in week out. His super-sup heroics came during times when he was played very regularly. That is now not the case anymore, with Jota obviously getting ahead of him in the pecking order. He’s in a bit of a hole right now. The irony is that with Jota injured for a while, he’ll get more minutes on the pitch in the next couple of months. But he’ll forever remain behind the super-trio, that’s how it is.
Finally for Wolves, it makes sense. They can offer him regular playing time within a quality team, able to beat anyone on their day, and that could just be what he needs in order to recover the form we know he’s able to reach. Nuno Espirito Santo is one of the best coaches in the game in my book, and he might have a very precise idea on how to use him. If the move happens, it could be a success for them and for him. Possibly a win-win deal for all parties if the fee is right.
