According to a report in the Daily Mail, Wolverhampton Wanderers are leading the race to sign Hibernian striker Jason Cummings.

Cummings has been linked with Glasgow Rangers, Leeds United and Derby County (Daily Record), ahead of the summer transfer window.

However, it is Wolves who are believed to be at the head of the queue to sign Cummings.

The 20-year-old hit the back of the net 25 times in 49 appearances this past season for Hibs, enhancing his reputation.

Rangers had reportedly identified Cummings as a striker who could enhance their forward line as they prepare for the Scottish Premiership, while Leeds and Derby apparently felt he was capable of performing in the Championship.

But it is Wolves who are said to be leading the way in the race to sign the young front man.

Wolves are known to be on the look out for a new striker this summer, as they look to find competition for the likes of Nouha Dicko and Joe Mason.

Wolves are expected to be active in the transfer market over the coming months, and the Mail believe that Cummings could be one of the first players who they welcome to Molineux.

Cummings has recently said that he wants to stay with Hibs (Express and Star), but the Mail suggests that he could still move.
