Championship leaders Wolves have opened talks with AFC Bournemouth striker Lewis Grabban, according to the Birmingham Mail.
He has also been attracting attention from Aston Villa and Cardiff City but it is Wolves who have made the first move for him.
Grabban has spent the first part of this season at Championship strugglers Sunderland and scored 12 goals for them in 19 games. He was a huge part of Sunderland’s team and they will really miss him now unless they bring in another striker to replace his goals.
Bournemouth ended his loan when January started as they now want to sell him on a permanent basis. Their manager, Eddie Howe, has confirmed that he will definitely leave the Premier League club in this transfer window.
Wolves have been busy so far this January. They are currently top of the table but have already signed striker Rafa Mir from Valencia and now want to boost their attacking options even further by signing Lewis Grabban. Nuno Espirito Santo wants to add some more firepower up front to get them over the line and into the Premier League.
Grabban is an experienced Championship striker and has proven to score goals at this level. He has played for the likes of Rotherham United, Norwich City and Bournemouth in this division and knows it well.
Wolves will face strong competition from their promotion rivals Aston Villa and Cardiff City but they are the club that have made the first move which puts them in the driving seat for the time being.
