Wolves are reportedly considering a move for Fortuna Dusseldorf striker Kenan Karaman.

Fussball Transfers have claimed the Black Country club are looking at potential cover for Raul Jimenez after fracturing his skull two weeks ago.

17-cap Turkey international striker Karaman is said to be on Wolves’ list, and he could be an inexpensive option with his contract expiring next year.

Karaman, 26, has three goals in nine games in the 2. Bundesliga, and is also supposedly being tracked by Sampdoria as well.

Goalscoring has been a real issue for Wolves this season.

Nuno Espirito Santo’s side have bagged just 11 goals 12 games, and with Jimenez now on the sidelines, there is big pressure on young Fabio Silva, who Nuno may not have anticipated using so soon after his big-money move.

Karaman goal record not too encouraging

Wolves’ supposed interest in Karaman – who apparently does want to leave (via BuliNews) – is somewhat surprising, as his record would suggest he is not the prolific attacker Nuno perhaps needs right now.

He has 12 in 53 for Fortuna, and 12 in 93 for former club Hannover.

He’s made 102 appearances in the German top-flight and scored just 13 goals, and so Wolves may be better served looking at other options.
