Sources: Wolves line up £7m bid for Cardiff City star Moore

Wolves are lining up a bid for Cardiff City striker Kieffer Moore, Football Insider has learned.

The Premier League club are in the market for a centre-forward in the final week of the window.

A Wolves source has told Football Insider the club are ready to submit an offer of around £7million for Moore.

Cardiff are opening to selling the 29-year-old as they look to raise much-needed cash.

A £2million signing from Wigan Athletic in August 2020, Moore has two years remaining on his contract in the Welsh capital.

The target man has contributed one goal and one assist in five appearances across all competitions this season.

Bluebirds boss Mick McCarthy used Moore as an impact substitute in the first three games of the Championship campaign before giving him the nod to start against Millwall on Saturday.

Moore was one of the Championship’s standout performers last season, with his 42 appearances in the division yielding 20 goals and two assists.

Such form earned him a place in Wales’ squad for Euro 2020.

He impressed in his four appearances in the competition and scored in a 1-1 draw with Switzerland.

Wolves are in the market for a centre-forward who can provide cover and competition for Raul Jimenez before the window shuts.

The Mexico international, who has recently returned from a serious head injury, is one of only two strikers at Molineux.

The other recognised striker at Bruno Lage’s disposal is 19-year-old Fabio Silva, who has scored four goals in 34 Premier League appearances.
