Wolves have joined Leeds United in the hunt to sign PAOK forward Aleksandar Prijovic, according to a report.
Polish news site Sport claims that Wolves are “very interested” in Prijovic, 27, but face a battle with their Championship rivals Leeds if they want to sign up the Serbia international.
It is understood that Prijovic has release clause tied into his contract at the Greek Super League club worth £8.8million.
Sportske.net has previously reported that Leeds are happy to pay up to sign Prijovic – but not the value of his hefty release fee.
However in a major development, Sport now reports that PAOK would be willing to cash in on the forward for anywhere between £5.3million and £6.2million, although 10 per cent of that would go to Legia Warsaw due to a clause in his transfer to Greece.
Leeds and Wolves aren’t the only teams credited with an interest in Prijovic as it is understood a Chinese club is also keeping close tabs on the situation.
Football Insider verdict
Leeds could really do with a new striker in the squad whereas Wolves do not. Wanderers are flying high at the moment and have recently confirmed the signing of Rafa Mir from Valencia. Mir and Leo Bonatini should easily fire Wolves up to the Premier League. However Leeds need to go in for someone this month who can get around 15 goals between now and the end of the season. If Chris Wood was in this side, you would think that the Whites would be pushing Wolves at the top of the table, but the summer replacements to the Kiwi striker have not lived up to expectations at all. Prijovic is a journeyman but has been in good form for his last two clubs. 10 goals in 20 appearances this season is decent, but Leeds should maybe look for better options.
In other Leeds United news, it has been confirmed that this midfielder has left Elland Road.
