Wolverhampton Wanderers could interest in signing Stoke City veteran Peter Crouch, as speculate the Birmingham Mail.

Despite sealing the signing of Jon Dadi Bodvarsson from Kaiserslauten yesterday, the Championship side remain in the market for a new forward, and are rumoured to have pinpointed Crouch as a prime transfer target.

Crouch himself has seen his appearances for the Potters limited over the past year, and the former England international may look to a move this summer in a bid for regular first-team football.

Whether he chooses to make the drop down to the Championship remains to be seen, but it may represent a relishing opportunity for the 35-year-old, and he would provide some much needed experience in a Wolves side that was severely lacking last season.

Formerly of Southampton, Tottenham and Liverpool, and with over 70 goals in the Premier League, Crouch has a keen eye for goal and, while Wolves have yet to make a formal bid, the same report from the Birmingham Mail touch on claims that Crouch has visited Compton, the home of Wolves' training ground, in order to push through a switch to Molineux.

A transfer fee would not be a huge issue, given Wolves' recently completed takeover from Chinese billionaire Guo Guangchang, meaning new manager Walter Zenga has a hefty transfer kitty this summer.
