Wolves are set to make a move for Derby County’s Chris Martin in the according to a report on Page 51 of The Sunday People.
With Wolves future in the Sky Bet Championship looking secure for another season, they are now looking for players that will help them in the battle for promotion they wanted to be involved with this season. And they have decided to target a new striker with someone who can regularly hit the back of the net being key for a sustained challenge at the top of the table.
And the man they want is Chris Martin, despite some of the headlines that have followed him around this season. He is currently on loan at Fulham but when Steve McClaren returned to be the head coach of his parent club Derby, he refused to play for the Cottagers as he aimed to force a return back to the East Midlands. He has since returned to action for Fulham though and even with that gap where he did not play, he has been able to score 10 goals.
This is what has attracted Wolves to Martin, with the fact that their head coach Paul Lambert having worked with the Scottish international when they were both at Norwich City also making this move more appealing to the Black County side. However they will have to pay up if they want to sign Martin as he recently penned a new deal with Derby keeping him there until 2020. It is expected that the Rams will be holding out for a massive £7m, though Wolves may be able to pay it due to last year’s takeover by Fosun International.
