Wolves preparing £15m raid on Premier League rivals in January

Date published: Friday 7th December 2018 9:20

Wolves are set to launch a £15million January swoop for Huddersfield attacker Alex Pritchard, according to The Sun.

Nuno Espirito Santo is hoping to bolster his attacking options in the upcoming window, having relied on a small pool of players in the opening half of the season.

Pritchard, 25, is seen as the ideal man to add depth to Santo’s side, having played a key part in the Terriers’ recent revival which has seen them pull away from the drop-zone.

The former England U21 international has played the last nine games off the main striker, including the win over Wolves that kick-started Huddersfield’s season.

After scoring just two goals and providing two assists since joining Huddersfield last January, Pritchard would likely thrive in a more goal-hungry Wolves side, with his passing and creativity touted as his main assets.

Wagner would stand to make a profit on the deal that brought Pritchard to the John Smith’s Stadium after he arrived from Norwich for a fee starting at £12million, before playing a key part in Huddersfield’s survival under Wagner.

Wolves first showed interest in him five years ago, when he shone on loan from Spurs for Swindon, but Pritchard instead went on to temporary spells with Brentford and West Brom, before joining Norwich on a permanent basis in August 2016.
