Last summer Fulham appeared to give themselves a great chance of prospering in the Premier League by spashing out £100m on a host of signings, while Wolves attracted some criticism at the time for not pushing the boat as much, spending a more cautious £70m. Since then Wolves have snapped up Jonny Otto for £18m and have agreed a club record £32m deal to sign 17-goal top scorer Raul Jimenez on a permanent deal from Benfica. But just a year after both…
