Wolves transfer news: Wolves interested in Viktor Gyokeres

Wolves reportedly hold an interest in Coventry City striker Viktor Gyokeres.

According to Afton Bladet, Wanderers are keen to snap up the Sweden striker, who has enjoyed a fantastic season so far.

Gyokeres has made 23 Championship appearances so far, and scored 12 goals.

He is currently joint-top scorer in the division along with Middlesbrough’s Chuba Akpom.

His contributions have helped City to within two points of the play-off spots.

Gyokeres has been with Coventry since the summer of 2021, joining from Brighton after he’d had a few loan spells. He only ever made one appearance for the Seagulls’ first-team.

He’s really made a name for himself since moving to the Sky Blues, scoring 33 goals in 89 games in total so far.

Afton Bladet say Wolves are keen to sign the 24-year-old, who has 11 caps for his country, as are Fulham and Everton.

Wolves, of course, have already signed one attacker in Matheus Cunha.

The Brazilian joined the club from Atletico Madrid on an initial loan basis. But the club will make that permanent next summer.

Seemingly Julen Lopetegui still wants to add another striker to his squad.

Cunha is not and out-and-out striker, so it would make sense for Wolves to now go and target a more natural number nine.

Viktor Gyokeres could be a good signing for Wolves

Gyokeres is enjoying a really good season with City.

Potentially, he could be a good addition for Wolves. But it would obviously be a risk given his lack of experience at the top level.

Gyokeres coming to Wolves could potentially see an attacker leave.

It may be that one of Diego Costa, Raul Jimenez, Hwang Hee-chan or Adama Traore depart the club.
