The fact that Abel Herndandez’s contract at Hull City is due to expire this summer has not gone unnoticed.
Scottish Premiership champions Celtic have offered the Uruguayan international a three-year deal to move to Glasgow, according to Tuttomercatoweb, while Ovacion claims that Newcastle United manager Rafa Benitez is interested in taking him to St James’ Park.
And now there are two more British-based sides in the mix.
According to TMW, Wolverhampton Wanderers are in talks about signing Hernandez on a free this summer. The Championship winners are backed by billionaire Chinese investors and, the report adds, hope to tempt the former Palermo striker with a £2.5 million a year contract.
Now, between Wolves and Forest, a move to the City Ground would perhaps make more sense. Wolves need players who are good enough for the Premier League and Hernandez has scored just eight goals in 50 games across two top flight campaigns at Hull.
He has been far more prolific at Championship level, firing The Tigers to promotion in 2014/15 with 20 goals and hitting eight in just 10 appearances in an injury-hit 2017/18 campaign.
Forest too are in desperate need of a more reliable marksman given that Kieran Dowell, their nine-goal top scorer, is set to return to parent club Everton this summer.
