Wolverhampton Wanderers have joined the race to sign Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Alex Pritchard, according to The Express and Star.

The 23-year-old is in demand and has courted interest from a host of Premier League and Championship clubs as his Spurs career looks certain to finish this summer.

But Wolves are the latest side to be linked with the Tottenham academy graduate, according to The Express and Star.

The report goes on to suggest that Wolves' new ownership might appeal to Pritchard, after the West Midlands club were bought by Fosun International, who pledged to spend £30 million on revamping the playing staff at Molineux.

Whether Pritchard is part of that overhaul remains to be seen. The England Under-21 international could do with a confidence boost after a disastrous loan spell at West Bromwich Albion in the second half of last season.

Under Tony Pulis, Pritchard clocked just 70 minutes of Premier League football. A stint in the Championship may benefit him, having previously impressed for Brentford under Mark Warburton during the 2013-14 campaign on loan.

The Birmingham Mail reported in June 2014 that Wolves boss Kenny Jackett wanted to bring him to the club.
