Wolverhampton Wanderers striker Leo Bonatini says new signings have boosted the squad, according to Express & Star.

Wolves who were crowned champions of the Sky Bet Championship in emphatic fashion last season have started their recruit for the new season as they look to take the Premier League by storm.

The club have brought it striker Rail Jimenez, Portugal’s first choice goalkeeper Rui Patricio, defender Jonny Castro, Joao Moutinho to mention a few and Bonatini believes their arrival has boosted the squad.

“It’s like they’re coming to help us. We kept a lot of players from last season and I think that’s very important.” Bonatini said.

“It’s going to be easier for the manager as well as majority of the players already understand the system and the style of play.”

Bonatini has signed for the Molineux club on a permanent basis for £5million after spending last season on loan at the club.

The 24-year-old featured for Wolves in their pre-season friendly against Stoke City and has revealed his excitement about playing in the Premier League.

Speaking about the friendly against Stoke City, Bonatini said: “It is always good to play, we came here to play hard and it was a good training session for us.”

“We enjoyed it, we were playing hard, we were running, we kept the ball very well. It was a good session for us.”

Wolves come up against Derby County in their next pre-season friendly as they look to cement preparations for the upcoming campaign.
