Wolves chief Jeff Shi has confirmed that Fosun are prepared to spend big money on completely deals to bring in “experts” to improve the club.
The West Midlands side currently sit top of the Championship table after splashing the cash in the summer and breaking their transfer record twice in 2017, including a £15million move for Ruben Neves from Porto.
Shi has suggested that Wolves are now keen on the idea of improving their backroom staff as well as the playing squad and is eager to invest more money to realise his Premier League ambitions.
“We can invest. We will invest. But everything will be done as an investment for value,” he said, as quoted by the Mirror.
“We understand that the best people may not be so cheap. We do want the best. But it is important to stress that this is a business following business rules.”
“We want the best,” he added. “To be the best, we need the best people. We need the top people behind the scenes. We want experts in the industry.”
Chinese ownership has swept over the West Midlands in recent years as Aston Villa, West Brom and Birmingham have all interested investment from the Far East.
Wolves’ fierce rivals West Brom have even gone to the lengths of signing Chinese wonderkid Zhang Yuning in a bid to increase the club’s appeal in the Asian nation, but due to work permit issues he has been loaned out to German outfit Werder Bremen.
Shi has also confirmed that something he may want to do in the future is follow the Baggies’ lead by bringing in a few Chinese players to Molineux.
“We would like to establish ourselves in China. Perhaps in future even one or two Wolves players might be Chinese. Who knows?” he added.
