Wolverhampton Wanderers are reportedly interested in Huddersfield Town attacker Alex Pritchard, but he would be miles away from the marquee signing they need.
According to the Daily Mirror in their live transfer blog (2:18pm, 6 December), Wolves have revived interest in the 25-year-old after previously wanting to sign him when he was still at Tottenham.
The report details that Nuno Espirito Santo wants to add more creativity and Pritchard is on the club’s radar ahead of January.
It’s no secret that the West Midlands club could do with some extra reinforcements in the final third despite the fact they turned over Chelsea 2-1 on Wednesday in the Premier League.
The likes of Diogo Jota, Adama Traore, Morgan Gibbs-White and Helder Costa are all forward-thinking players that are adjusting to life in the top flight.
Nuno requires a ready-made product if he is to take the club to lofty heights and it seems unlikely Huddersfield’s playmaker can be that man.
Pritchard is currently a key player at a Huddersfield team hovering just above the relegation places and the ex-Spurs ace certainly has great technical ability.
The Englishman has slowly moved further up the pitch during his career and he is usually at his most dangerous when receiving the ball in the number 10 position.
But the dark cloud hanging over him is that he’s scored just two goals in 30 Premier League games during his career and at his age is yet to really arrive on the scene as a big-game player at the top level.
Pritchard is certainly capable of making impacts in the Premier League, but consistency is an issue and the diminutive 5ft 5in attacker is hardly a substantial step up from Wolves’ current options.
