Wolverhampton Wanderers are said to be monitoring Hatayspor striker Aaron Boupendza.

90min claim several teams from the Premier League are attentive to the 24-year-old’s red-hot current form.

Boupendza has 18 goals in 26 Super Lig games so far this season, which is a fantastic return that puts him top of the scoring charts, three ahead of Vincent Aboubakar of Besiktas.

Boupendza has only been with Hatayspor since last summer when he joined from Bordeaux, and first caught the eye when he bagged four goals in the first-half of a game earlier this season against Antalyaspor.

Five more goals would follow in the next three matches, and it became clear Hatayspor had struck gold with his signing.

Boupendza’s goals have helped lift Hatayspor up to sixth in the table, and they are currently the joint fourth-highest scorers in the division, behind the Big Three.

 

90min say Wolves have been keeping a close eye on the Gabon international, but Tottenham Hotspur, Leicester City, West Ham United, Newcastle United, Crystal Palace, Brighton, Rangers and Celtic are all keen.

Hatayspor are said to value Boupendza at around £8.5 million.

Jose goalscoring struggles mean Boupendza should be closely followed

Willian Jose is very much someone who divides opinion within the Wolves fanbase – but him failing to score in 10 appearances so far is concerning.

The way things are going, Wolves will surely be reluctant to sign the South American permanently at the end of the season.

It’s definitely worth the club keeping a close eye on left-footed ace Boupendza, who has certainly been proving himself as a very accomplished finisher, and someone with an impressive turn of pace.
