Newly promoted Premier League side Norwich City have submitted an offer to Wolves for their prolific striker Benik Afobe, according to HITC.
The 22-year-old has been a revelation in the Championship following his move to Wolves from Arsenal for £2 million in the January transfer window last season, scoring 14 goals in 23 league games for the Black Country based outfit.
Prior to his move to Wolves, the England U21 international had an equally productive loan spell in League One for MK Dons, scoring 19 goals in 30 matches for Karl Robinson’s side.
Following an impressive season domestically, Afobe was rewarded with a place in the England U21 squad, travelling to the Czech Republic in place of the injured Saido Berahino.
Despite not making an appearance at the UEFA European U21 Championships, Afobe has continued from where he left off last season, scoring two goals in his first three appearances for Wolves this season, in spite of the continued transfer speculation surrounding him.
Aston Villa and West Brom are reported to be among the frontrunners for Afobe’s signature, but it would appear that Norwich have made the first move for the player, with Alex Neil seemingly looking to further bolster his forward line following their 3-1 victory at Sunderland.
In the face of Premier League advances for his star striker, Wolves manager Kenny Jackett has reiterated that Afobe is not for sale, with the player himself confirming his commitment to Wolves in the past few days.
