Wolves transfer news: Everton eyeing Wolves striker targets Adams, Batshuayi and Ajorque

Wolves are facing competition from Everton over three of their striker targets.

It was reported last week (Daily Mail) that Wanderers could be set to make a move for Southampton striker Che Adams.

Adams, who cost the Saints £15 million, is looking at less game time this season following the club’s acquisition of Sekou Mara.

The same report claims that Everton are also keen on the player.

Prior to those reports, there were claims that Wolves look to make a move for Michy Batshuayi.

It has all gone very quiet on the that front since, but football.london claim that Everton have been in talks with Chelsea over the Belgium international.

And Wolves have also shown interest in Ludovic Ajorque of Strasbourg and have apparently already seen an offer rejected.

Foot Mercato reported last week that Everton were looking at the 28-year-old, with a view to making a loan offer with option to buy.

Wolves recently signed Goncalo Guedes from Valencia. But it is thought the club would like to add a natural centre-forward to their squad before the window closes.

Guedes is capable of playing through the middle, but is naturally a winger.

Potentially, it is looking like Wolves could be set to lock horns with Everton in the coming days and weeks.

Everton set to make life difficult for Wolves

Clearly Everton are very keen to add a new striker of their own this summer.

It will be interesting to see which of the three players the Toffees make a move for, if any.

Ideally they would plump for Adams, leaving Wolves more in the clear to push for either Batshuayi or Ajorque.

Batshuayi has decent Premier League experience, while Ajorque has scored 28 goals over the past two seasons.
