AC Milan’s striker, Andre Silva, was getting linked with Championship outfit, Wolverhampton Wanderers, over a prospective move to the Molineux Stadium in the summer. However, in one of his latest interviews, Silva has stated that his future is with the Rossoneri despite his struggles this season.
This is indeed a blow to Nuno Espirito Santo’s ambition enhancing the quality of his attacking arsenal. The 22-year-old Portuguese could have been a dazzling addition to Wolves’ ranks. Promotion to the Premier League is seemingly likely to be achieved by the club and here are three players whom Espirito Santo can try to target in the summer to cater to his side’s striking needs next season.
As per one of the latest reports by Birmingham Live, the Wolves have emerged as one of the favourites to sign Mario Balotelli in the summer. The 27-year-old striker might be a controversial player but there is no denying that he has been a stupendous performer this season for Ligue 1 side, Nice.
In 31 games across all competitions, Balotelli has smashed 22 goals and an assist to his name. He had previously played for Liverpool and Manchester City in the Premier League but has an unfinished business with the English top flight. He is an astute striker and has been making a galvanizing impact in French football and he could be a superb addition to the Wolves.
Due to the lack of game time under the tutelage of Claude Puel, Leonardo Ulloa was shipped out on loan to Leicester City in the January transfer window. His stature in the ranks of the Foxes had certainly diminished and despite the fact that he is tied to the King Power Stadium until the summer of 2019, Leicester City might strike him off their books in the summer.
If Ulloa is lured to the Molineux Stadium in the summer, it could turn out to be a shrewd move for the club as well as for the player. He is an experienced campaign, having won the Premier League title with Leicester City in the 2015-16 season, and could add a substantial amount of competitiveness in the striking department of the Wolves.
Bristol City have fared pretty well in the Championship this season and are definitely in the race for finishing inside the top-six places of the Championship table. One of the key players for the Robins this season has been their versatile attacker, Bobby Reid.
Reid has plundered 17 goals and has registered 5 assists to his name from 38 appearances and he is seemingly likely to be a subject of interest from many clubs in the summer. The 25-year-old has certainly been prolific up front and his exuberance in the final third could be a handy asset for the Wolves in the coming seasons.
