Birmingham City

Transfer interest in Wolves striker growing as local rivals join chase



Championship side Birmingham City are interested in signing striker Bright Enobakhare from Premier League Wolves, Birmingham Live have reported.

The Blues are looking to strengthen their attacking options before the start of the season, following the departure of last season’s top scorer Che Adams to Southampton.

It is now thought that Enobakhare has emerged as a potential target for Birmingham as they look to fill that void under newly appointed interim manager Pep Clotet.

The 21-year-old spent the second half of last season on loan with Coventry City, scoring six goals in 18 appearances for the League One side, who are said to be keen to bring Enobakhare back to the club on a permanent deal, after making a £600,000 bid for the striker earlier in the summer transfer window.

Enobakhare has one year remaining on his contract at Molineux after Wolves activated a one year option on his deal at the end of the season, although the striker has been left out of the Midlands side’s squad for their Premier League Asia Trophy in China.

The Verdict

“I think this would be a good signing for Birmingham.

“The Blues are somewhat short in numbers right now, not least up front following the departure of Che Adams, so the recruitment of someone such as Enobakhare may not be a bad move for Birmingham.

“Having played at Championship for Wolves previously, Enobakhare will know just what is expected of him at this level, and after impressing on loan in League One last season, he will be keen to prove that he is still capable of performing in the second tier.

“Indeed, following their impressive return to the Premier League last season that saw them use fewer players than any other side in the division, Enobakhare may feel that his chances at Molineux could continue to be limited next season, which may tempt him to make a move elsewhere, arguably increasing Birmingham’s chances of completing the deal.”
