Report: Wolves looking to spend Afobe windfall by targeting Leeds star Chris Wood again

Wolves are reportedly hoping to land Leeds United's Chris Wood.

According to the Daily Mail, Wolverhampton Wanderers are pursuing a deal for Leeds United striker Chris Wood, as they look to replace Benik Afobe.

Wolves fell to a 3-1 defeat at home to Cardiff City on Saturday afternoon, but the shining light again was new signing Michal Zyro.

The Polish international hit two goals on his league debut against Fulham on Tuesday night, and added another goal on Saturday as he impresses immediately following his move from Legia Warsaw.

Whilst Zyro has made a greats start to life at Molineux, manager Kenny Jackett will still be keen on adding more firepower in attack, given that they sold star striker Benik Afobe to Bournemouth earlier this month.

Now, the Daily Mail report that Wolves are in the market for a new striker following Afobe's departure, and are looking to splash the cash on Leeds ace Chris Wood.

The 24-year-old hitman chose Leeds over a move to Wolves last summer, according to the Express and Star, but Jackett doesn't appear to have given up hope just yet.

Wood has hit eight goals in 24 games for Leeds since signing from Leicester, but has often been criticised by fans for his profligacy in front of goal, having wasted some key chances this term.

Currently out injured, it would be a surprise to see Wood leave Elland Road this month, but given that the New Zealand international was brought in by former boss Uwe Rosler, current manager Steve Evans may be open to bringing his own men to the club instead.

Would you sell Wood to Wolves?
