Wolves Rumours: 1st August

Wolves enquire about 22 goal a season striker

Wolves have reportedly enquired about Blackburn Rovers striker Ben Brereton Diaz according to Football League World.

The Stoke-born Chilean international scored 22 goals in the Championship last season and has attracted interest from a whole host of clubs.

It’s believed that Wolves could get Brereton Diaz for a cut-price move as the 23-year-old is out of contract at the end of this season.

The Blackburn striker could not only provide cover for Raul Jimenez’s injury but also provide valuable competition for the number 9 slot at Wolves.


Wolves looking to bolster attack with another South Korean

Wolves have reportedly offered €3 million for Bordeaux forward Hwang Ui-Jo according to L’equipe.

The French club found the offer insufficient and negotiations are continuing.

The South Korean international scored 11 goals in 29 starts last season – despite Bordeaux being relegated to Ligue 2.

Ui-Jo, who’s an international teammate or Hwang Hee Chan, has averaged just over a goal every three games since he joined Bordeaux from Gamba Osaka.

He has previously been deployed as a winger during his earlier years at Bordeaux but his preferred role is at centre forward. 

Despite being 6-feet-1, Hwang is no slouch and does have a good turn of pace once he gets going – which goes hand in hand with his direct style of play.


Wolves linked with Roma forward

Wolves reportedly hold an interest in Roma striker Eldor Shomurodov according to Gianluca Di Marzio.

It’s likely that the move would be initially a loan move with an option to buy.

Torino are also said to be interested and Bologna have said to agreed a loan with an option to buy for €9m.

Captain of the Uzbekistan national side, 6-foot-3 Shomurodov signed for Roma from Genoa in 2021 for a reported £16m but the player has struggled for minutes due to the impressive form of Tammy Abraham.


Ajorque a target for Wolves

Wolves are amongst a number of clubs who have watched Strasbourg forward Ludovic Ajorque according to Sky Sports News.

Everton, Leicester, West Ham, Fulham, Nottingham Forest, Bournemouth and Newcastle are also said to be monitoring the 6-foot-6 forward.

The 28-year-old scored 12 goals and got 8 assists last season.


Ait-Nouri being watched by Manchester City

Rayan Ait-Nouri is a player that Manchester City have reportedly scouted in their search for a new left back according to Goal.

The 21-year-old had impressed during last season and his performances have continued during pre-season.

Manchester City look to have failed in their pursuit of Brighton left back Marc Cucurella so could turn to Ait-Nouri.

Angers hold a 50 percent sell-on clause on Ait-Nouri’s next transfer but it’s understood Wolves have the option to buy the French outfit out of the clause.

With Chelsea showing an interest in Ait-Nouri too, Wolves may want to act swiftly in buying Angers out of the clause so they can maximise any revenue from the future sale of the left back.
