Wolves have reportedly offered striker Andrea Belotti a three-year contract.
The club yesterday made a move on the Italy international, with TMW reporting Wanderers are looking to land the free agent.
Belotti is currently unattached after running down his contract with Torino.
He was there was seven years.
Unfortunately for Wolves though there is a rather big issue. Belotti is said to be ‘not too excited’ about the proposal, which is around €3.5 million (£2.9 million) per season plus add-ons.
And it is claimed that AS Roma are waiting to complete a deal for the 28-year-old.
They are waiting to finalise the exit of Eldor Shomurodov, who is in advanced talks with Bologna.
Supposedly, negotiations are advanced between Roma and Bologna over a loan deal with an option to buy for €10 million (£8.5 million, via Football Italia).
Yesterday, Wolves’ lack of a centre-forward proved costly.
Bruno Lage’s side lost their first Premier League game of the season 2-1 to Leeds United.
Hwang Hee-chan played through the middle. The South Korean had a decent game, but it was clear Wolves were again lacking bite.
Andrea Belotti would be absolutely ideal for Wolves, amid claims the club have made a contract offer
Quite simply, Belotti would be an absolutely superb signing for Wolves.
To get a physical centre-forward with a great goalscoring record on a free transfer seems like a no-brainer.
But it looks as though he isn’t particularly keen to make the move.
That is a shame, but Wolves can’t be bringing players to Molineux that aren’t fully set on the move.
