Wolves are interested in a move for Derby County striker Chris Martin in January, according to The Sun journalist Alan Nixon.

The Midlands club are currently top of the Championship and will be looking for some faces in January to help them get over the line and into the Premier League.

Chris Martin is apparently a target for Nuno Espirito Santo’s side. The 29 year-old striker has struggled in front of goal for the Rams so far this season and could leave for the right price in January.

Martin, who has had 16 caps for Scotland, spent last season on loan at Fulham in the Championship and scored 10 goals to help them get into the Play-Offs.

He started his career with Norwich City and played over 100 games for them during his time with the Canaries. He also had various loan spells out of Norwich, at clubs like Luton Town, Swindon Town, Crystal Palace and Derby County. The Rams then signed him on a permanent deal in 2013.

Martin does score goals at Championship level and is proven in the division. He has scored 81 goals in 225 games for the Rams. Although this rumour may come as a surprise to some, he does have goals in him and would be another option for Wolves.

After a summer of big spending and a great start to the season, Wolves do look like a side destined for the Premier League. Can the potential signing of Derby County striker Chris Martin help them take that final step to the top flight?
