Wolves Head Coach Kenny Jackett looks to have narrowed his potential new striker down to two targets, according to Tim Nash of The Express and Star. 


After ruling out a £3m move for Callum Wilson, the current players to catch Jackett’s eye are Leicester City striker Chris Wood and Chelsea front man Patrick Bamford.

Whilst a move would be permanent at some stage, Jackett stated that any signing would ideally be on-loan.

Jackett told TheE&S: “We’d prefer our own players and a loan player we have a chance of signing at the end,” 

“If it is a loan – and loans have been successful for us at times – we’d hope it’s one that turns out to be a permanent deal, if it goes well for both sides.” 

The potential moves will come as exciting news to fans of a Wolves team that boasts Nouha Dicko, Liam McAlinden, Leon Clarke amongst others up-front. So, providing both players are interested, who would Wolves fans rather have?
