Wolves have a made a £750K bid for Fulham’s Matt Smith according to a report from the Express & Star.
The lanky striker who stands at 6ft 6in has been out of favour at Craven Cottage having sat behind the likes of Moussa Dembele and Ross McCormack for most of last season. And even though those two strikers look likely to leave the club this summer, Smith is also willing to leave and other Championship sides are interested in signing him.
One such team is Wolves, who according to reports have made a bid worth £750K. After starting last season with a fierce front line consisting of Nouha Dicko and Benik Afobe, they soon lost both with Dicko suffering a serious injury while Afobe was sold to Bournemouth. And while Smith is very different to those two forwards, Wolves head coach Kenny Jackett obviously believes that he can add something to this Wolves side.
Smith started his career in non-league football, playing for the likes of New Mills and Reedditch United before his impressive form at Solihull Moors earned him a move into the Football League with Oldham Athletic. His tall physical style helped them and earned him a move to Leeds before moving onto their Championship rivals Fulham in 2014.
