Wolves have made an offer for Derby striker Chris Martin, according to a report.
Sky Sports’ transfer centre blog on Monday (2:56pm) claims that Championship club Derby have had two separate bids for the 27-year-old, one from Wolves and one from Fulham.
This has thrown Martin’s future into doubt in the final days of the summer transfer window.
The highly rated Scotland international moved to the iPro Stadium on a free transfer in the summer of 2013 after an initial loan spell at the club.
He has spent the majority of his career in England’s second tier, featuring in 223 encounters in the Championship for a return of 70 goals and 31 assists.
He has only played in five fixtures in the Premier League and he was close to helping Derby return to the top flight in 2014, where his side met QPR in the play-off final, but they suffered a 1-0 defeat after conceding a Bobby Zamora goal in stoppage time.
However, the eight-time capped international is currently experiencing a goal drought by his standards and he hasn’t scored in 14 matches for Derby since finding the back of the net in the club’s 4-0 win against Hull in April.
Wolves are understood to be looking for another forward having already signed Paul Gladon and Jón Daði Böðvarsson this summer, as they were also made favourites to sign Middlesbrough striker Jordan Rhodes last Monday.
In other Wolves transfer news, goalkeeper Jack Ruddy has joined the club from Bury.
