By Danny Wright
Wolves are on the verge of signing PSV striker Jurgen Locadia, according to a report.
Sky Sports News claimed on their official Twitter account on Thursday that Locadia, 23, is poised to complete his switch to Molineux after agreeing a £10million fee with the Dutch giants before the transfer deadline is reached at 11pm.

Nuno Espirito Santo has been widely reported to have been in the hunt for a new striker all summer and with Nouha Dicko recently completed his move to Hull, loanee Leo Bonatini has been left as the only striker at Molineux.
The Mirror claimed in their live transfer blog on Thursday [12:23am] that a number of teams had been in pursuit of Locadia, who is a signing that will no doubt excite the Wolves supporters once more after what has been a very successful summer for the Championship club.
The former Netherlands Under-21 international scored four goals in 15 appearances for PSV across all competitions last season after missing most of the campaign with a serious groin injury.

Football Insider Verdict
Locadia has had his injury problems but he is very likely to be a good signing for Wolves. Nuno needs a new striker and it seems that this £10million splurge, which is still quite big for a Championship club, shows that he thinks he has found the right man. Locadia still has a good while to reach his potential and even though his goal scoring form last season wasn’t amazing, once he is back to full fitness and settles down at Molineux, he could be the man to get 20 or more goals and fire Wolves to promotion to the Premier League.
