Reported Molineux striker target Che Adams hits brace for Southampton as Wolves blank again

Wolves again failed to score yesterday, and reported striker target Che Adams then bagged twice for Southampton.

But it was the same old story, with the team lacking that cutting edge in the final third.

Daniel Podence and Goncalo Guedes rotated to lead the line yesterday in north London.

And in the second-half, Raul Jimenez made his return to action following a knee injury he picked up in pre-season.

The Mexican made a good impact, but could not help Wolves find the net.

The need is clear for Wolves, and a host of names have been linked with a move to Molineux over the past few weeks.

One man who is reported to be on Wolves’ radar is Southampton striker Adams, who helped his side come from behind to beat Leicester City yesterday.

Adams struck first on 68 minutes shortly after he came off the bench, converting well with a first-time finish inside the area.

He then grabbed the winner for the visitors with around 10 minutes to play, producing a brilliant acrobatic finish to beat Danny Ward in the Leicester goal.

Adams was then a whisker away from grabbing his hat-trick, hitting the post right at the death.

It was a great cameo performance from the 26-year-old, and one that might just have caught the attention for Wolves after another blank from Bruno Lage’s side.

Adams could be good back-up and competition for Raul Jimenez at Wolves

After Wolves had failed to breach Spurs yesterday, Adams showcased exactly what Wanderers are currently missing.

His second goal was especially well taken. Not only was the finish great, but he also did well to ghost between two defenders.

There are certainly better strikers out there. But Adams has proven he can cut it in the top-flight, and the fact his goals came as a substitute could potentially appeal greatly to Wolves. He could be a strong squad option and back-up for Jimenez.
