Three strikers Wolves could target in January
Wolverhampton Wanderers boss Nuno Espirito Santo is believed to want to sign another striker in January (The Telegraph).
Raul Jimenez has done a sterling job for the club following his summer arrival on loan from Benfica.
But the Mexican is one of just two recognised strikers available to Santo – Leo Bonatini being the other.
The club definitely need reinforcements, but who could they realistically sign to help Jimenez out going forwards?
The Chelsea striker would be a fine acquisition for Wolves and it’s a transfer that wouldn’t break the bank.
Giroud is out of contract at the end of the season and it’s difficult to see him staying, or indeed wanting to stay at Stamford Bridge.
The World Cup winner has once again found himself stuck on the bench for a club in London and may feel compelled to undertake a new challenge.
He has bags of Premier League experience and might be able to help increase Wolves’ goals scored tally.
Hernandez is currently in the West Ham United starting XI due to Marko Arnautovic being out injured.
When the Austrian comes back in a couple of weeks though it could well be back to the bench for the Mexican.
He’d make a fine signing for Wolves because he already knows Jimenez well through the national setup.
His goal-poaching style could complement Jimenez’s ability to link up with those around him.
Recently linked with a £38 million move to Everton, Augustin could certainly do a job for Wolves.
The mobile young Frenchman has been impressing over in the Bundesliga for RB Leipzig.
Acquiring Augustin at such a price would seem like a lot but his potential is high and if they were to ge a few good seasons out of him then it’d be worth it.
Wolves seem prepared to spend similar money to secure Jimenez permanently, so perhaps they’d shell out close to what Leipzig would demand for a potential gem of a player.
