Coventry want to hand Wolves target Gyokeres a new contract

Coventry City are reportedly looking to hand striker Viktor Gyokeres a new contract, following recent transfer links to Wolves.

The Sweden international is having a fantastic season in the Championship.

On Saturday, he notched his 15th league goal of the season in the 2-1 win over Sunderland. He also provided an assist.

It was the third game running he has scored, with Coventry winning all three of those games.

Gyokeres has really caught the eye with his pace, power and finishing.

His manager Tony Mowbray was full of praise for him this weekend, suggesting he is the Erling Haaland of the Championship.

He said (Northern Echo): “He looks a yard more powerful and a yard quicker than everyone else, he’s a really confident boy.

“I don’t want to say he should test himself in the Premier League but who is like him in the Premier League at the moment?

“Who is too fast, too strong and too big, you would suggest Haaland is like that and Gyokeres in this league looks a yard faster and stronger than the players he plays against in the Championship.”

In January, it was claimed that Wolves had interest in Gyokeres.

In the end, the club only brought in Matheus Cunha from Atletico Madrid.

According to the Coventry Telegraph, the Championship club are now in talks with Gyokeres over a new contract for the 24-year-old.

Wolves may be keeping a close eye on Viktor Gyokeres’ contract situation

It is no surprise that Coventry’s priority is to tie Gyokeres down.

He looks a brilliant player and a real handful of a striker.

At the moment his contract expires in 2024. If there is no movement on this proposed new contract by the summer, then Wolves may wish to enter negotiations.

It is difficult to see Diego Costa remaining at Wolves beyond the summer. Raul Jimenez may also move on.

So Gyokeres might be someone Wanderers take a look at. Especially if he’d only have one year left.
