Wolves could turn to the Championship to boost their striking options, with Huddersfield striker Karlan Grant linked with a January move to the club. According to the Sun via HITC, the Premier League side are keeping close eyes on the player.
Should Wolves sign Karlan Grant?
Nuno’s men have endured a slow start to the season, sitting 12th in the Premier League, with just 13 points from their first 11 games, scoring only 14 goals in that time.
Raul Jimenez has carried the burden of goalscoring at Molineux, netting four times this season, twice as many as any other member of the squad.
Grant, who signed for Huddersfield in January from Charlton, has found form in the Championship, scoring nine and assisting two for the Terriers.
The 22-year-old scored four times in 13 Premier League appearances for Huddersfield as they were relegated, and has been a key man in the club’s revival at the start of this season under new manager Danny Cowley. Indeed, this season is averaging 2.1 shots per game as well as 1.5 key passes (via WhoScored) which would see him rank second in each metric in the Wolves squad.
Granted, he is playing a level below the Premier League but his 2.1 shots per game would still make him the joint-second highest shot-taker in the Old Gold’s ranks (behind only Jimenez), suggesting he can at least help carry the attacking burden when required.
Nuno should be keen to add to his attacking ranks as summer signings Patrick Cutrone and Pedro Neto have a combined total of just three goals in all competitions thus far.
Grant’s value will have significantly risen from the £2 million that Huddersfield paid for him in January (Transfermarkt themselves value the star at £4.5m already), but Wolves have proven they have the resources to back their manager with big moves for the likes of Jimenez, Cutrone and Adama Traore.
If they can get him, he could be an astute buy given his impressive attacking numbers in a side to have struggled for well over a season.
