Report: Wolves line up bid for centre-forward David Okereke

Wolverhampton Wanderers are reportedly one of the clubs interested in striker David Okereke from Italian second-tier club Spezia.

According to the Sun, Wolves are tracking the centre-forward alongside Premier League rivals Newcastle and Crystal Palace.

It is understood that Spezia will be resigned to losing their speed machine if they are not promoted from Serie B and will demand at least £8million.

The report details Wolves and Newcastle are the pair currently weighing up potential summer bids.

Meanwhile, TuttoMercatoWeb have previously claimed that West Ham are keeping tabs on Okereke.

The 21-year-old has been in brilliant form so far this season and it’s resulted in him earning a senior call-up to the Nigeria squad, but he’s still waiting for his first cap.

TBR’s View:

 

Okereke is clearly a highly-rated talent that has a host of Premier League teams potentially vying for his signature in the summer.

He is a rapid striker that has impressed over in Italy, but it would be a considerable step up to move to the English top-flight.

The centre-forward has made 32 appearances across all competitions this season, scoring 10 goals and supplying 12 assists in return.

Wolves do have some real quality in attack with the likes of Raul Jimenez and Diogo Jota, but having an upcoming talent like Okereke as a back-up option could work well for Nuno Espirito Santo’s side.

His £8million price tag would be a slight gamble, but perhaps Wolves should take the risk to bring him to Molineux.
