The striker has been involved in all eight of Wolves’ matches so far this season, five in the Europa League qualifiers and three in the Premier League, scoring six goals. [via TransferMarkt.co.uk]
His record for Wolves so far is 23 goals in 52 appearances (0.44 per game), having played in all but two of their games since coming to the club in summer 2018 – and both of those were in the Carabao Cup.
