According to The Sun, Wolverhampton Wanderers are eyeing up a summer move to sign Sheffield United striker Oliver McBurnie this summer.
It’s claimed that Nuno Espirito Santo wants a new striker this summer to compete with Raul Jimenez, which may mean that loanee Willian Jose isn’t signed permanently.
McBurnie is thought to be a top target for Wolves to fill that role, with Sheffield United’s imminent relegation seemingly tempting Wolves into making a move.
United allegedly plan to cash in on the 24-year-old, seemingly seeing this as a real chance to offload him and bring money in to reinvest ahead of a promotion bid next term.
Wolves want to pay £15miillion for McBurnie, which is actually a loss for the Blades after paying £17.5million to sign him from Swansea back in the summer of 2019.
The Scot has only managed one Premier League goal in 22 games this season, which may leave Wolves fans a little worried given that he would be relied upon for goals in order to help Raul Jimenez.
McBurnie found the net six times last term and has suffered in a poor United side, so Nuno may think that he can get the best out of him at Molineux.
McBurnie does at least offer work rate and an aerial threat, and potentially provides something a little different to Jimenez when coming off the bench, if that’s how Nuno wants to use him.
