Report: Wolves set to miss out on £15m striker as club ‘block’ move to Molineux

Che Adams looks set to miss a Premier League return after Southampton rejected a £15million buy offer from Wolves.

Gary O’Neil may have burned a hole in the back pocket of a large chunk of the King’s best players after the sale of Matheus Nunes to Manchester City – freeing up funds and allaying Wolves’ concerns about financial fair play – but reinvestment of that money into new talent. Easier said than done.

Strasbourg confirmed earlier in the week they had rejected Wolves’ £21m bid for teenage midfielder Habib Diarra. The men from Molineux also saw an offer rejected by Salernitana for striker Boulaye Dia.

And it was the same with Che Adams.

The Wolves are without Southampton striker Che Adams

Accordingly the athleteSouthampton have “blocked” a deal that would have seen the hard-working Scotland international leave St Mary’s for the Black Country on an initial loan with a £15million call option clause.

Southampton insist they are in no mood to further weaken Russell Martin’s squad after losing James Ward-Prowse, Tino Livramentom, Romeo Lavia and Nathan Tella. Armel Bella-Kotchap and Sekou Mara also failed to move to Werder Bremen and Borussia Dortmund.

I would like to keep it given the impact it had. He’s a really good player and his energy was great. So I’d be disappointed if I lost him,” Martin said in early August after Everton made a bid for Adams.

“Ideally you want to keep some players, and some players are really valuable in character.”

At least Wolves have strengthened their ranks in the last 24 hours with Santiago Bueno and Enso Gonzalez.
