Wolves are weighing up a move for Crystal Palace striker Dwight Gayle – but face stiff competition from Bournemouth, reports the Express and Star.
Gayle, who is Palace’s £6m record signing, has scored 10 goals in 29 appearances in all competitions for the Eagles this season, but it is understood that they may let him leave the club either on loan or on a permanent move – if the price is right.
The Selhurst Park outfit will be looking to recoup the £6m fee they paid Peterborough United in July 2013.
Wolves would be unwilling to sign anyone at that price and Gayle himself wants to stay in the Premier League, which has alerted Bournemouth.
The 24-year-old is on around £20,000-a-week at Palace, which would make him the second highest paid at Wolves behind Bakary Sako – although Sako is due to leave the Midlands club at the end of June following the expiration his contract.
Gayle has been frozen out since the appointment of Alan Pardew and could be set to fall further down the pecking order as Pardew wants to sign at least one new striker this summer.
Wolves boss Kenny Jackett is looking to add to his striker department following the release of Kevin Doyle, Leon Clarke and Jake Cassidy, leaving him with two strikers on the books in Benik Afobe and Nouha Dicko.
