Bjorn Sigurdarson was the best player in Norway last season – and Wolverhampton Wanderers could do with another striker.
Wolves appear to be weighing up their options as Nuno Espirito Santo’s side aim to make an alternative striker for Leo Bonatini the final piece of their jigsaw in January.
The Mirror (November 15th, page 48) linked Feyenoord talisman Nicolai Jorgensen with a big-money move to Molineux while Jutarnji List also added the prolific Victoria Plzen striker Michal Krmencik into the equation.
And the latest link, provided by TEAMtalk, stated that Wolves could try and take Lewis Grabban from Bournemouth after he hit 10 goals in 14 starts on loan at Sunderland.
Although, ironically, a player Wolves let go on a free just a year ago is outscoring all three right now. Bjorn Sigurdarson never really justified the £2.4 million Wolves paid Norwegian side Lillestrom back in 2012, netting a grand total of seven league goals in 69 games for the club.
Form of his life.
But since Wolves allowed him to return to Norway with Molde in 2016 when his contract expired, Sigurdarson has discovered the form that Wolves expecting great things of the Icelandic international centre-forward.
Molde finished second in the domestic championship this year and Sigurdarson was undoubtedly their star man. Only two players scored more in the Eliteserien in the 2017 campaign than Sigurdarson’s 16 in 27 games.
And, via statistics website WhoScored, the red-hot 26-year-old rated as the best player in the entire division – ahead of Rosenborg’s title-winning talisman Nicklas Bendtner.
But should Wolves genuinely consider handing Sigurdarson a second chance in English football? With plenty of money in the club’s pocket, it seems that they have other strikers in their sights.
