Report: Wolverhampton Wanderers want Vidar Kjartansson on loan

Vidar Kjartansson is said to be of interest to Wolverhampton Wanderers, as Kenny Jackett looks to improve his attacking options.

According to a report in the Express and Star, Wolverhampton Wanderers have already started planning to replace Benik Afobe.

The Championship side are on the lookout for attacking additions, with Jiangsu Guoxin-Sainty forward Vidar Kjartansson said to be of interest.

Afobe moved from Molineux to Bournemouth at the weekend, and it leaves Wolves’ options looking short up front.

Bjorn Sigurdarson, Bright Enobakhare and Adam Le Fondre are currently the only first team strikers on Kenny Jackett’s side’s books, but doubts linger over all three.

Sigurdarson has only just started playing for Wolves again following a two years absence, Enobakhare is only 17-years-old, and Le Fondre has not scored with much frequency since arriving on loan.

Kjartansson is not a particularly familiar name for English football fans, but Wolves are said to have been tracking the Icelandic international who plays in China.

Kjartansson has scored nine times in 28 matches so far this season, and Wolves are reportedly preparing a loan bid for the 25-year-old.
