Wolverhampton Wanderers are preparing a bid for Wales striker Kieffer Moore, according to Football Insider.
The offer will apparently be in the region of £7m, and it remains to be seen whether that’s enough to persuade Cardiff City, who are open to sale because they’re in need of cash.
Wolves are keen to add another centre-forward to their ranks in the final week of the transfer window. They’ve already offloaded two this summer, sending Patrick Cutrone on loan to Empoli and selling Rafa Mir to Sevilla for a fee of £10.8m.
What’s Moore’s track record?
Moore scored 20 goals in 42 Championship appearances for Cardiff last season as they narrowly missed out on the play-off places. His form was enough to earn him three starts for Wales at the European Championship earlier in the summer (via WhoScored).
However, you can still understand why some Wolves fans may be unconvinced given that the has been plying his trade in the second tier and has never played in the Premier League.
Fan feed Talking Wolves relayed the report, and here’s what some of the club’s supporters made of it.
These Wolves fans far from impressed by Moore links
“Never played in the Prem so would be a clear gamble. Mitrovic at Fulham would be a better fit but even he is out of our reach. A sorry state of affairs if it happens but a clear indication of the downward spiral the club finds itself in thanks to Shi.”
“Predictable rumours. In the end we can’t attract ‘Top’ players so we’ll raid the championship, panic buying before the deadline. There’s no recruitment strategy plan B.”
“Not the quality we require”
“This has gotta be a wind up”
“Oh well, he’ll be useful in the Championship next year”
