Wolverhampton Wanderers are 'pulling the plug' on a proposed £8 million permanent move for Bournemouth's Benik Afobe, according to the Daily Mirror (May 6th, page 66).
The Daily Mirror reported on Thursday that an £11.5 million fee has already been agreed for the striker's transfer, but added that he was yet to learn whether or not Wolves intend to press ahead with a deal, which he was keen to see happen.
And according to the same publication, Molineux boss Nuno Espirito Santo and his recruitment team are uncertain that Afobe will 'provide sufficient firepower' in the Premier League.
Afobe has only scored 10 goals in 63 top flight appearances for Bournemouth - who paid Wolves a reported £12 million for him in January 2016 - although many of his outings have arrived from the substitutes' bench.
