Wolves are plotting a move for Venezia striker Thomas Henry ahead of what could be a busy summer transfer window for Bruno Lage and co at Molineux.
According to reports, via BBC Sport, Wolves are interested in working out a deal to bring Henry to Molineux in the summer transfer window.
The French striker has only been at the Italian side for a year but has already made a solid impression which has gathered Premier League interest.
The 27-year-old’s contract doesn’t expire for another two years and his impressive performances will surely have ramped up the fee Venezia will be able to command.
Bruno Lage has made a solid start in life at Molineux, he has guided the side to their third top half finish in four seasons since their promotion from the Championship in 2018 and will have high hopes ahead of next season.
Henry has scored nine times in Serie A for relegated Venezia, and this is a more than respectable return and he could bolster the Wolves frontline.
The club could unearth their own Suarez in the Frenchman with the pair stated as similar in style and statistics by FB Ref this season.
Henry has managed 2.4 shots on target per 90 minutes, whereas the Uruguayan sits at 2.5, and both players have scored over ten goals in all competitions.
In terms of shot-creating actions, Henry has 38 for the season compared to 36 for Suarez and shows that they still pose an attacking threat, despite being in teams that have struggled at points over the course of the season. With that in mind, it’s clear to see why an assessment from Lokeren boss Karel Fraeye suggested he’s a player who can “cause havoc” for defenders.
Wolves might have to pay slightly more than the striker’s £4.5m valuation, but with “powerful” praise being lavished upon the 6 foot 4 colossus earlier this season, they may just have found themselves a bargain.
