Wolves consider swoop for Kieffer Moore

Wolves haven’t been too active in the transfer window but after failing to score in their first two league matches of the season, there is a sense that Bruno Lage needs to spend more money.

Fortunately, the Old Gold still have six days of the market in order to wrap up their business.

What’s the word?

After Lage admitted last week that the Wolves first-team squad consisted of just 15 senior players it came as a huge concern for supporters.

However, after smacking Nottingham Forest 4-0 on Tuesday evening, there is a sense of positivity starting to manoeuvre through Molineux.

If Wolves finish the transfer window well then it’ll lift spirits further ahead of an exciting season under their new manager.

One player they are considering before the deadline is Cardiff City’s Kieffer Moore.

Should Wolves sign Moore?

Yes please!

Yes please!

No thanks!

No thanks!

Football Insider suggests they are weighing up a bid for the Welshman, news that was supplemented by The Athletic’s Tim Spiers.

He said on Twitter: “Busy week ahead for Wolves who are working on a number of deals. Am told Cardiff and Wales striker Kieffer Moore is on their radar but no bid made yet. CB, CM and another striker priority positions.”

Good signing

With Wolves in desperate need of adding more bodies to their squad, Wolves supporters should be excited by the idea of signing Moore.

His record over the last year has been phenomenal and if anyone can play second fiddle for Raul Jimenez, it’s the Wales international.

After all, like the Mexican, he can score goals and also hold the ball up. In fact, Moore is arguably better in that second facet.

Last season, the 29-year-old won an incredible 10.5 aerial duels per game. That is absolutely streets ahead of anyone in the Wolves squad with Willy Boly topping the charts at 2.7 battles per match.

Can you guess these obscure Wolves players? Here's the first one...

On top of that, Moore has goals in his armoury. He scored 20 of them for Cardiff last term as he dominated Championship defences.

Wolves will know all too well how a player can compete at that level and then drop off at Premier League level, though. The likes of Helder Costa and Ivan Cavaleiro caught the eye in the second tier but then dropped off once they were promoted with the Old Gold.

Moore, however, would arrive as a squad option. There would be little pressure on his shoulders and vitally, he knows English football well.

The same cannot be said for Fabio Silva and Willian Jose last season. That’s why signing a player like the Cardiff star is key.
