Wolves transfer news: Wanderers looking at 'four or five' striker options including Hwang Ui-jo

Wolves are reportedly looking at ‘four or five’ potential striker options, as the club seek to increase squad depth.

Bruno Lage currently doesn’t have any recognised centre-forwards available to him.

The club’s first game of the season is on Saturday against Leeds United, and the manager will be forced to use one of his wide forwards through the middle.

Raul Jimenez will be missing for several weeks after picking up a knee injury in pre-season.

And before that, Fabio Silva was loaned out to Anderlecht.

The situation has left many fans very concerned.

Wolves have struggled to score goals for the last two seasons, so to start 2022/23 without a striker is far, far from ideal.

But Wolves are apparently now working away to fix the situation.

According to the Express & Star, the club are looking at ‘four or five’ strikers, including South Korea international Hwang Ui-jo.

Bordeaux are likely to cash in on the 29-year-old in a bid to alleviate financial pressure.

It had been claimed that Wolves saw a bid rejected, but the Express & Star states that a bid has yet to be made.

Hwang is reportedly valued at around £7 million.

These targets are all being worked on ‘concurrently’ according to the report.

Wolves’ transfer activity, it is stated, is expected to pick up once the new season has started.

Encouraging news with Wolves looking at several striker options, but club must act fast

So it is very much looking like no one will come in before the game with Leeds.

That is frustrating, but hopefully the wide forwards will be able to deliver at Elland Road.

Wolves need to get somebody in as soon as possible. A new centre-forward should already have been signed and the club are playing a dangerous game.

Hopefully, there will be a breakthrough with one of these options over the weekend, he can come in, start training, and be ready to play in the second game against Fulham.
