Wolves striker Rafa Mir is attracting plenty of interest ahead of the summer transfer window.
According to Marca, Mir has offers from Premier League clubs and some of the top sides in Spain, including Atletico Madrid.
He could even feature for Spain at the upcoming European Championships, with Luis Enrique impressed.
Mir’s transformation in Spain
Mir has only made four appearances for Wolves and has yet to score a goal in English football, having spent the first half of the 2019/20 campaign on loan at Nottingham Forest.
But his temporary switch to La Liga strugglers Huesca has surpassed all expectations. The 23-year-old has scored 15 goals in all competitions this season. His tally of 12 in the league betters that of FC Barcelona’s Antoine Griezmann, among others.
Wolves, meanwhile, have been short on firepower since Raul Jimenez sustained a fractured skull in November. The inexperienced Fabio Silva has contributed only three goals, while January loan signing Willian Jose has yet to find the net.
Fan feed Talking Wolves relayed Marca’s report, and here’s how supporters reacted.
Wolves fans express frustration as Mir sale looms
“Wolves have been chasing for a striker for so long and now that we have one almost everyone wants in our hands without spending any money, we’re selling him. Don’t get it.”
“Don’t sell him to a prem club before he’s had the chance to play for us in the prem. That’s ridiculous”
“He deserves a shot with us and we’d be daft to not give him it. Have him and Raul up top and silva and corbeanu as the understudies.”
“Makes me sad that we’re never going to play him”
“Surely he’d be better to bring back, he’s scoring some good goals, looks a decent player, don’t get why we’d let him go, send Jose back and bring Mir in.”
“So why is he considered not good enough for us, would Nuno benefit from having an out and out striking coach as part of his staff as currently we dont seem to be able to get the best out of the majority of our forwards”
“Got to be given a chance surely unless Raul is back for the first game of next season”
“Get him in our team he is a good striker !!!!!”
“Maybe we should give the lad a whirl upfront!”
