With less than three weeks to the transfer window opening, Liverpool have already been linked with a move for Steven Fletcher.
“He`s a Premier League player scoring goals so he`s going to get headlines. Players always do when they`re scoring goals.” a nonchalant Mick McCarthy told the Express & Star.
Six goals this season now means that he can boast a rather impressive strike rate of 16 goals in just 23 Premier League starts.
With the transfer window just around the corner, the media will of course link him with a move to the so-called bigger clubs and as previously mentioned, yesterday he was linked with a £5million move to Liverpool.
But when asked if he thought he would become a transfer target in January our Mick said: ‘No. If I say yes then I’ve suddenly put him up for sale haven’t I? So, categorically: no. All Fletcher can do is play and score, for his career here, and his Scotland career. He`s still only a young man, so all he can do is keep playing well and scoring.
“It`s a great feeling as a footballer to be playing well. He`s a very good player – he`s excellent. It`s his all-round game, but as with all strikers, it`s his goals that top his performances off.
“And he wants to score – he loves scoring.
Vital Wolves Comment: Personally I think it would have to be a big money move to see Fletcher leave Molineux.
Of course the likes of Liverpool being interest will flatter the Scot, but we broke our transfer-record to sign him for £7million, so it would have to be a double figure bid for the Wolves board to even contemplate selling?
