Wolves have been linked with a swoop for Queens Park Rangers defender Rob Dickie earlier this month.
On the same night Bruno Lage’s men were thrashing Nottingham Forest 4-0, Dickie was in action for QPR.
He led his side out as captain against his former club Oxford United.
Yet another screamer
Dickie opened the scoring after 26 minutes with a stunning strike from outside the box.
He won the ball in his own half and played a one-two before storming forward and smashing the ball home.
Dickie has already scored one goal of the season contender, away at Middlesbrough and he was at it again.
‘Any player has their price’
QPR boss Mark Warburton was asked about Dickie after the match and said to the club website:
“Any player has their price. It is all about the price, it is as simple as that. If anyone leaves, it will be on QPR’s terms.
“Do I want him to go? Absolutely not. He is developing really nicely for us and long may that continue.”
It’s not clear how much Wolves would need to pay for Dickie but they do need a new central defender.
Scoring goals is an added bonus, but Dickie is commanding and comfortable on the ball.
Obviously the step up to the top flight would require some adjustment, but that’s the case if a player comes in from abroad too, like Ruben Semedo.
It was another eye-catching night for Dickie during a season where almost everything is going right.
