Report: Wolves said in fight for Peterborough striker Conor Washington

Birmingham City FC - St. Andrews

Wolverhampton Wanderers and Birmingham City reportedly want Peterborough United striker Conor Washington.

Peterborough United striker Conor Washington is attracting interest from Wolverhampton Wanderers and Birmingham City ahead of the January transfer window, according to a report in the Daily Mail.

Washington has established himself as Posh’s main man up-front this season, and has scored nine goals in his last 10 outings.

The 23-year-old’s pace has caused defences no end of problems this season, and Wolves and Birmingham are said to be mulling over a move for the front man’s talents.

Wolves have failed to be as potent upfront as they were last season, with the loss of Nouha Dicko to injury and Bakary Sako’s transfer to Crystal Palace.

Birmingham, meanwhile, are also short of options up front – and have recently had to bring in James Vaughan on loan from Huddersfield Town to cover for Clayton Donaldson’s absence through injury.

Peterborough chairman Darragh MacAnthony has recently admitted on Twitter that his side may have to sell one of their key players in January, offering hope to the Championship clubs that a deal might be possible.

If Washington does leave the ABAX Stadium, he will follow in the footsteps of Dwight Gayle, Lee Tomlin, Aaron McLean and Craig Mackail-Smith - all strikers who have all recently left Posh to join higher placed clubs.
