Wolves should consider raid for striker Emiliano Sala

Wolverhampton Wanderers currently have on-loan striker Raul Jimenez doing an excellent job this season, but there are very little options behind him in the squad.

Nuno Espirito Santo could desperately do with an extra forward option at Molineux for the second half of the campaign and the club should grant him funds for a January raid.

One man that should crop up on the Wolves radar is goal machine Emiliano Sala, who is tearing it up with Ligue 1 club Nantes.

The 28-year-old Argentinian has been in brilliant form in the French top flight this season and is exactly the type of centre-forward Nuno should be chasing.

He has already scored 13 goals in 19 games across all competitions this campaign and looks a good fit for the Premier League.

The West Midlands club should join the reported race for his signature, as Cardiff City are keen on a potential swoop in January.

 

According to the Sun, Cardiff boss Neil Warnock has flown to France to try persuade Sala into a move.

It is understood that Nantes are prepared to offload their talisman for around £20million, but the South American was hoping for a bigger transfer than to Cardiff.

Sala will make his transfer decision by the weekend, which is why Wolves should swoop in and offer him the chance to join their ambitious project at Molineux.

The South American is an excellent finisher that is deadly around the penalty area, while he’s scored a couple of headed goals too already this season and has a strong turn of pace.

He looks like an all-round talented striker that could boost Wolves’ options in the final third and the £20million fee looks a bargain given the current market.
