Wolves target Josh Maja is not yet the finished article

Wolverhampton Wanderers are reportedly interested in a move for Sunderland goal machine Josh Maja.

According to the Daily Mail, the centre-forward is a target for Wolves alongside Huddersfield, Manchester City and Crystal Palace.

It is understood that Palace are currently weighing up a bid for the 20-year-old after he turned down a new deal at the Stadium of Light.

Maja has been in brilliant goalscoring form this season for League One Sunderland, netting 14 times in the league already.

Wolves could definitely do with some attacking reinforcements at Molineux and Maja would be an intriguing signing for Nuno Espirito Santo’s side.

 

On-loan star Raul Jimenez is currently the first-choice striker at Wolves, scoring seven goals and supplying five assists in 22 games.

The Mexico international has adjusted very quickly to English football and is fitting Nuno’s system well as the lone striker.

Maja would be making a considerable step up to the Premier League if he moved in January, but bringing him in as Jimenez’s understudy could be an exciting prospect.

The Sunderland ace is nowhere near the finished article, but has the instincts of a natural goalscorer and if Wolves step up interest in him he could be a promising signing.
