Current Wolverhampton Wanderers transfer news from BirminghamLive, as West Ham player and Albanian youngster Gary O’Neil wants to bolster attack line before window closes
Sky Sports reports that Wolves’ attempt to get Chelsea striker Armando Broja on loan has failed.
The top scorer Hwang Hee-chan is abroad with South Korea for the Asian Cup, and Fabio Silva and Sasa Kalajdzic are leaving Molineux on loan. Wolves manager Gary O’Neil needs more strike alternatives before the winter transfer window ends at 11 p.m. on February 1.
However, Sky claims that such choices are no longer available to the 22-year-old international player from Albania, who has struggled to contribute at Stamford Bridge despite doing well while previously on loan at Southampton.
According to reports, Chelsea declined a “straight loan offer” from Wolves in favour of selling Broja in order to comply with the Premier League’s sustainability and profitability regulations.
According to earlier reports, Chelsea was requesting a sum of £50 million for Broja, while Wolves and Fulham were hoping to reach an agreement for less than £35 million.
In January, Wolves were also said to be interested in signing former Aston Villa striker Danny Ings, but that deal too seems hopeless.
Danny Ings is expected to draw attention in the final hours of the transfer window, but West Ham is anticipated to hold onto the 31-year-old until the end of the campaign, according to The Mirror.
Noha Lemina, the brother of Mario Lemina, is rumoured to have agreed to join Wolves from Paris Saint-Germain. The 18-year-old is not anticipated to contribute right away to the first squad, according to Sky.
