Wolverhampton Wanderers have been linked with a move for Swansea City striker Eder according to the Wolverhampton Express and Star.

The Midlands club are currently on the search for a new striker after Benik Afobe joined AFC Bournemouth last week in a deal worth over £10 million and Portuguese international Eder could fit the bill.

The 28 year old striker joined Swansea City from Sporting Club Braga in the summer for a fee believed to be in the region of £5 million but Eder has failed to impress at The Liberty Stadium after failing to net a goal in his 14 appearances for the club to date.

Wolverhampton Wanderers are in good form having won four of their last five league matches and Manager Kenny Jackett will be looking to bring in further reinforcements after Afobe’s departure and with the club needing to put together a substantial run of results to join the race for a Play Off place. The club currently sit eight points behind sixth position.

Jackett is likely to have transfer funds at his disposal following the sale of Afobe however it is not known whether a transfer move for Eder would involve the striker moving to Molineux on a permanent basis or on a loan deal.
