Report: Wolves and QPR both considering move for striker Nahki Wells

John Smiths Stadium - Huddersfield

The 25-year-old has been excellent for Huddersfield Town this season.

Huddersfield Town boss David Wagner has insisted that his star striker Nahki Wells will not be leaving the John Smith's Stadium during the January transfer window, despite speculation linking him with three of their Championship rivals, the Huddersfield Examiner reports.

Wolves, Fulham and Queens Park Rangers have been linked with a move for the 25-year-old (via Examiner), but Wagner has insisted that none of the players that he wishes to keep hold of will be heading for the exit this month. 

"No players will leave us in this window if I am not happy with the situation, so we feel protected," he said, as reported by the Examiner.

Despite Wagner's firm stance, all of the sides reportedly chasing Wells' signature are arguably in need of bolstering their attacking ranks, so may well attempt to tempt the Terriers into selling their key man before the window shuts.

Wolves will certainly be considering their options after Benik Afobe left Molineux to join Premier League side Bournemouth. And while Rangers and Fulham currently have plenty of depth at their disposal, speculation has surrounded their own forwards.

Hoops striker Charlie Austin is out of contract at the end of the season, and has had several top flight sides monitoring his progress (via London Evening Standard).

Meanwhile, Fulham are seemingly in danger of losing two of their first-choice forwards, with Ross McCormack (via Daily Mail) and Moussa Dembele (via London Evening Standard) both being linked with moves away from Craven Cottage recently. 

Wells has been in great form for Huddersfield this season. His eight goals have kept the club away from the relegation zone, and Wagner will know that their chances of remaining in the division may well depend on whether he can keep the Bermudian beyond this month.
