In an exclusive interview with Football FanCast, Steve Bull, who is a Wolves Hall of Famer, has claimed that Oli McBurnie is frustrated at Sheffield United but can’t see his former club signing the 24-year old this summer.
McBurnie has found chances and goals difficult to come across this season, as have all of the Blades strikers, but the Scotland international has just one goal to his name in the Premier League this season.
Speaking on if he could see McBurnie making the move to Molineux and why he might want to leave Sheffield United at the end of this season, Bull told FFC:
“I can’t see that happening to be fair but I think Oli McBurnie is frustrated at Sheffield United so he might want to get away but I can’t see it myself.
“I think Wolves will be looking more towards a Portuguese striker with Mendes’ links, but I’ve said before that we do need somebody who has done it in the Premier League.”
Wolves have not performed much better in the final third since Raul Jimenez got injured in November as Pedro Neto and Ruben Neves are their joint top scorers with five goals.
