Report: Wolves make enquiry for Swansea’s Eder

Wolves have made an approach to sign Eder of Swansea City.

Wolves have enquired into the availability of Swansea City striker Eder, Wales Online reports.

The Portuguese forward arrived at the Liberty Stadium over the summer, but has struggled to find form in the Premier League. He has yet to score in 14 appearances, and his £5 million fee makes him one of the flops of the season.

However, this has not stopped interest in him, and Wolves have made an approach to sign Eder this month, as they look to replace Benik Afobe, who has just signed for Bournemouth.

They have enquired into his availability, and whilst the report does not indicated whether the Swans are willing to let Eder go, they are searching for a new striker. The report states that Seydou Doumbia is a target for the Welsh club, and if he arrives at the club, Eder could be allowed to leave.

It is also not known whether Wolves want to sign Eder on loan or on a permanent deal, but if it is the latter, Swansea are ready to make a loss on the £5 million paid for the striker in the summer.

The 28-year-old has scored one goal in 21 games for Portugal, and arrived at Swansea on the back of his best ever scoring season. 38 games brought a return of 14 goals for Braga, and it appears as if that campaign was a one-off.
