The one big transfer during the January window that most Wolverhampton Wanderers fans were hoping for was a striker to ease the pressure on Mexican international Raul Jimenez.
But with less than two days remaining, although we’ve seen a few departures to help balance the books (plus plenty of speculation that more would depart) the clubs hope to move people on that seemingly have no future to us is obvious. Speculation on the rumour mill has obviously been rife, but we are yet to see that addition to bolster the club at the top of the pitch.
I have no idea if links to Rubin Kazan’s Serdar Azmoun are any more reliable that the well-trodden links with Liverpool’s Divock Origi or the Tammy Abraham speculation, but the Iranian international was gaining the headlines yesterday owing to a report from outlet Sport24.
The 24-year-old has pedigree.
28 goals in 45 caps for country Iran, including four at this month’s Asian Cup matches and he has four goals in 14 games for his current Russian side which does balance the hype given the media tagged ‘Messi’ like qualities.
Voetbal Nieuws gave an update recently suggesting Rubin would take £9million and given his age, international strike rate, and the ridiculous market fees, that does sound attractive.
Dare I say, worth a punt?
