Striker Kieffer Moore would reportedly be open to joining Wolves in January.

The club became linked with a move for the 21-cap Wales international towards the end of the last transfer window.

And on deadline day, it was claimed Wolves made a late swoop for the 29-year-old. That was something Mick McCarthy didn’t take too kindly too.

Ultimately he stayed put at Cardiff City, but it seems there could be more speculation in the coming months.

The Birmingham Mail reported yesterday that Moore would be keen on a move to Wolves.

It’s explained that he would reunite with Tony Roberts, who was previously Wales’ goalkeeping coach.

Whether Wolves decide to pursue Moore though remains to be seen.

A new striker is not really a priority according to the publication.

Wolves did bring in Hwang Hee-chan a couple of days before the deadline.

The South Korean is already off the mark for the club after completing his loan from RB Leipzig, scoring against Watford last weekend.

Hwang is not a traditional out-and-out striker, but can play through the middle in a two – as he did with Erling Haaland at RB Salzburg.

Bruno Lage also has Raul Jimenez and Fabio Silva has ‘proper’ centre forwards.

Wolves probably unlikely to move

Unless there is an injury to one of the Jimenez, Silva or Hwang, then a January move for Moore is probably unlikely.

Lage also has the likes of Adama Traore and Daniel Podence who have operated centrally before.

And then there are the likes of Francisco Trincao, who could probably play a false nine role, and Pedro Neto to return from injury.

Moore may be keen for a move to Molineux, but it would be a surprise if that did come to fruition.
