Abel Hernandez is wanted by four clubs this summer when his contract with Hull City expires, according to The Mirror’s Live Transfer Blog [Saturday 12th May, 18:18PM].
Scottish Premiership champions Celtic are after Hernandez but they face competition from Newcastle United, Wolverhampton Wanderers and Nottingham Forest.
Hernandez’s contract at the KCOM Stadium is up this summer and he has already made it clear to Hull that he will not be penning fresh terms.
The Uruguay international has been missing for most of this season with a serious injury but he made his comeback towards the end of the campaign and showed that he knows where the net is at Championship level with eight goals in eight starts.
But Hernandez is set to leave this summer and Wolves are eyeing a move.
The West Midlands outfit only have Rafa Mir on their books up front as they prepare to start life in the top flight again with loan duo Benik Afobe and Leo Bonatini returning to their parent clubs.
Nottingham Forest are also chasing a new forward with Apostolos Vellios, Ben Brereton and Daryl Murphy all failing to find the net on a regular basis for Aitor Karanka’s men.
Hernandez would be a coup for Nottingham Forest but whether he wants to stay in the Championship is debatable.
He is likely to prefer a move to the Premier League if there is an offer, although he has not yet shown that he is capable of scoring goals regularly at the top level in England.
But perhaps the 27-year-old can continue his comeback from injury, he is worth a punt for Wolves on a free transfer, even if he ends up being second or third choice.
