Wolves have entered talks with Premier League club Bournemouth over a swoop for Lewis Grabban in the January transfer window, according to a report.
The Chronicle claims that the Championship leaders have made an approach to the Cherries about signing Grabban, 29, who is currently on loan at Sunderland.
It is understood that Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe has revealed that he will hold talks with Grabban about his future at the Vitality Stadium as the Premier League side have the option to recall him from his loan in January and could offload him on a permanent deal.
Grabban has been in top form for struggling Sunderland this term, scoring 11 goals in 17 Championship appearances despite the Wearsiders’ lowly league position.
Wolves were linked with an array of strikers in the summer transfer window and appear to be pushing out the boat to add more depth in that area of their squad in January.
Football Insider verdict
Grabban probably wouldn’t be a starting striker for Wolves but he would definitely be a great fall-back option if Leo Bonatini was to suffer an injury blow between now and the end of the season. The Sunderland loanee has been in great form and is doing everything he can to keep the Black Cats away from relegation. Bournemouth aren’t said to have received a loan fee when the striker moved to the Stadium of Light so could decide to take the chance to cash in on him in January. Wolves have money to burn and the likeliness of Premier League football next season could be something that turns Grabban’s head.
