Are Wolves reportedly targeting the wrong Huddersfield player in Alex Pritchard?

Nuno Espirito Santo the head coach

Wolverhampton Wanderers are reportedly hoping to sign Alex Pritchard from Premier League strugglers Huddersfield Town in the January transfer window.

If The Mirror (live blog, 2.18pm) is to be believed, Wolverhampton Wanderers have been tracking Alex Pritchard for some time. As recently as the 2013/14 season to be exact, when the former England U21 international was on loan at Swindon Town from Tottenham Hotspur.

And after a lively start to the Premier League season with Huddersfield Town, The Mirror believes that Wolves are ready to make a move ahead of the January transfer window, just 12 months after the winger joined Huddersfield from Norwich for £11 million.

 

Now, Pritchard might have admirers at Molineux but is he really needed? Wolves can already call upon Adama Traore, Helder Costa, Diogo Jota and Ivan Cavaleiro out wide and A Bola claims that they are close to completing the signing of Japanese forward Shoya Nakajima from Portimonense for £18 million.

Maybe there is another Huddersfield talent who Wolves should put their efforts into – one who caused Nuno Esprito Santo no end of problems and outshone Ruben Neves.

Aaron Mooy was the best player on the pitch as The Terriers outfought Wolves at Molineux recently. The Australian international scored both goals in Huddersfield’s 2-0 win, following a crisp drive from the edge of the box with a clinical free-kick in the second half.

Wolves fans took to Twitter in their droves to hail Mooy for his Man of the Match display – but would he be a better addition than his Huddersfield team-mate Pritchard?
