Wolves are interested in Nantes striker Yacine Bammou.

Wolves are showing an interest in Nantes striker Yacine Bammou, report French website Mercato365.

Bammou is a Morocco international and has a contract with Nantes until 2019.

The 24-year-old is an option as the club seek to replace Benik Afobe, sold to Bournemouth this past week for £10 million.

This season Bammou has scored four goals in 18 appearances in Ligue 1, the same figure he scored in the entirety of last season for the club.

Born in Paris, there would be no work permit required for Wolves in order to bring him aboard.

He was a slow starter in the professional ranks, with UEFA's website reporting in 2014 that a year earlier he had been selling shirts in the PSG club shop. He has three caps for his country and one goal at international level.

Mercato365 report that Bammou is on Wolves' shortlist, but does not go into detail whether they are as yet planning to make an offer or not.
