Wolverhampton Wanderers are reportedly leading the hunt to sign Southampton striker Che Adams this summer.
According to The Telegraph, Wolverhampton Wanderers are leading the fight to recruit Southampton striker Che Adams, who will be a free agent during the 2024 summer transfer window at Molineux.

Wolves have been strikerless for the most of the 2023/24 season, with Matheus Cunha and Hwang Hee-chan frequently forced to play in an unaccustomed No. 9 position.

Head coach Gary O’Neil would have like to recruit an out-and-out striker during the 2024 winter transfer window, but was constrained by the club’s necessity to comply with Premier League profit and sustainability requirements. Adams’ contract with Southampton will end this summer, making him a free agent.

The striker has three months remaining on his contract with Southampton.
According to The Telegraph’s journalists Mike McGrath and John Percy, Wolves are leading the battle to sign Che Adams as a free agent after his contract with Southampton expires in June. Everton and Nottingham Forest have also expressed interest in the 27-year-old, but both clubs’ fate in the Premier League at the end of the 2023/24 season is doubtful.

Adams, described as “brilliant” by Southampton manager Russell Martin, may already negotiate a pre-contract with clubs abroad ahead of the summer, although there is huge interest in signing him on a free transfer from clubs in England. O’Neil has been looking for a striker at Molineux for quite some time, having missed out on recruits Yuri Alberto and Armando Broja on Deadline Day of the 2024 winter transfer window. The 40-year-old is said to have Adams firmly on his radar.

Wolves could yet qualify for European football next season, highlighting the necessity for additional recruitments given the potential added burden on their schedule. The Scotland international has had a decent season with Southampton, scoring 12 goals and providing five assists in 35 games in all competitions.

Wolves’ current forward options

 

Sporting director Matt Hobbs will be looking for a striker this summer.
Wolves are currently scraping the barrel for attacking options at Molineux for the rest of the 2023/24 season. Gary O’Neil will be hopeful Matheus Cunha is healthy for this weekend’s trip to Aston Villa, with Hwang Hee-chan and Pedro Neto out due to hamstring problems. Pablo Sarabia is the only other senior option up front.

Sporting director Matt Hobbs will be seeking for a striker this summer, with Sasa Kalajdzic out until the winter due to another long-term knee injury and Fabio Silva, who is now on loan at Rangers, expected to be sold to fund future purchases.
