Report claims Wolves have made 'serious' offer for Montpellier's Andy Delort

Wolves have reportedly made a ‘serious’ offer for Montpellier striker Andy Delort.

Le Buteur have claimed the Algerian attacker has offers from the Premier League, including from Wolves and Newcastle United.

Delort has enjoyed a fine start to the 2020/21 campaign so far, scoring eight goals and making six assists in 17 games across all competitions.

His partnership with Gaetan Laborde has really caught the eye, and Montpellier are currently the fourth most potent side in the division with 31 goals scored.

Interestingly, Laborde was actually also linked with a move to Molineux just last week.

Delort, once of Wigan Athletic, is considered one of French football’s top talents, with GFFN recently putting out their annual Top 100 Ligue 1 player rankings list that placed him at number 16.

In their words, he ‘might be the most underrated forward in Ligue 1’.

For Montpellier in total, he’s scored 34 goals in 86 games whilst also contributing 16 assists which suggests a creative side.

That Wolves have supposedly made an offer is somewhat dubious at the moment, with the club having just recalled Patrick Cutrone from his loanspell at Fiorentina.

By all accounts, Delort – who won the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations with Algeria – seems like a talented player and perhaps a better bet for Wolves than Laborde.

But realistically nothing needs to be done just yet.

With Cutrone now back on the scene, Nuno will surely want to see how the Italian fares before making a move for a new striker.
