It is not often a club sells one of their most promising youngsters to a bitter rival. So Birmingham might have a real challenge on their hands tempting Wolves to let Enobakhare make the short trip from Molineux to St Andrews.
A jet-heeled forward who left his native Nigeria for England’s second city six years ago, Enobakhare only signed a new 12-month contract extension with Wolves earlier this summer after an exceptional, six-goal loan spell at Coventry City.
There is certainly room in Nuno Espirito Santo’s squad for a striker blessed with pace, power and the ability to gallop up the patch at top speed, leaving defenders choking in his dust.
But, with Enobakhare omitted from Wolves’ pre-season tour of Asia, the chances are that the 21-year-old’s future lies elsewhere after over half a decade at Molineux.
Birmingham City are reportedly interested, though they will have to match the £600,000 offer Coventry have put on the table. The Blues do have plenty of money to spend though after selling Che Adams to Southampton for £15 million (BBC).
Replacing Adams, Birmingham’s top scorer and talisman is easier said than done. But, like Southampton’s marquee summer signing, Enobakhare will arrive at St Andrews brimming with natural talent and the potential to be a fearsome attacking presence at Championship level.
