Wolverhampton Wanderers Head Coach Kenny Jackett is struggling to find the right replacement for striker Benik Afobe.

I’m struggling to come up with much sympathy for Jackett on this topic.

Ever since Morgan announced he was selling the club, Afobe’s departure from Molineux was obvious.

So it’s unforgivable to not have potential replacements already lined up, based on various budgets.

We’ve been linked with a whole host of potential signings, including Hibernian striker Jason Cummings, Peterborough forward Conor Washington, Huddersfield’s Nahki Wells, Barnet’s John Akinde, Walsall’s Tom Bradshaw and Bolton’s Zach Clough.

Potential loan targets could be Crystal Palace’s Frazier Campbell and Watford striker Obbi Oulare.

But it seems that we are no closer to signing a new striker than we were when Afobe first joined Bournemouth for £9million.

“There`s nothing imminent, we are looking and working hard towards bringing players in.

“We can`t find the right player for the right price, it`s as simple as that.’ Jackett told the Express & Star.

He continued: “Kevin Thelwell and Jez Moxey will be working hard to rectify that and strengthen our side.”

Despite the influx of Afobe cash, there is still no imminent end to the halted Mike Williamson deal with Newcastle.

Jackett said: ‘I was very impressed with what he brought to us and how good he was when he was on loan. But no, a deal isn`t close.”
