Wolves have been named in connection with Sevilla striker Youssef En-Nesyri.
Spanish outlet El Desmarque claim that the Old Gold want to sign the hitman this summer.
He netted 24 goals across all competitions last season and apparently West Ham are also keen.
But there are a couple of reasons why a deal to land the striker look unlikely this summer.
Why might it not happen?
The first thing to note is the fee being mooted. The report says Wolves would pay more than 40 million euros (£34.2 million).
Is that really an affordable fee for Wolves this summer, when all the talk has been of frugality and selling to buy?
On top of that, they are apparently willing to double his wages to get the deal done. It wouldn’t come cheap.
Secondly, Sevilla simply aren’t looking to sell and his agent has said the striker is focused on life at the Spanish club.
Would it be a good signing?
With Raul Jimenez set to return from injury in 2021/22, do Wolves really need an expensive new striker?
It has been reported that Bruno Lage is planning to stick with lone striker systems next season; 4-2-3-1 and 3-4-3.
Jimenez will be the main man once he’s fit, so splashing out close to a club record fee on a new frontman wouldn’t make much sense.
