It has been reported that Wolverhampton Wanderers are interested in signing record-breaking Chinese winger Wu Lei.

The E&S reported our apparent interest in the player this week but fans have been torn on whether such a signing is representative of his qualities on the pitch or his status in China in terms of simply raising our profile.

The 26-year-old winger does have a decent record though, he has scored eleven goals in 52 caps for his country and he holds legendary status at Shanghai SIPG – he’s their record goalscorer with 155 goals and their record appearance holder with 328 games. He’s also said to be close to breaking the all-time Chinese Super League goalscoring record.

Reports of our interest may be premature though, as any move will be waiting on medical advice as he’s believed to have suffered an Achilles injury following their 5-1 victory over Beijing Renhe last Saturday.

Time will tell if we have a genuine interest but it’s a new name on me and seems to have come around as the Adama Traore speculation starts to lose its pull.
