Hull City

Wolves star subject of interest from two Championship clubs



Wolves striker Nouha Dicko is a target for Championship rivals Queens Park Rangers and Hull City, according to Pete O’Rourke of Football Insider.

The 25-year-old striker has started just once for Nuno Santo’s side this summer in the League Cup win over Yeovil, and could be tempted by more regular first team action with another club.

Dicko has come off the bench in each of Wolves’ opening four Championship fixtures, scoring the decisive goal in the 3-2 victory over Hull at the KCOM Stadium earlier this month.

Born in France, the Malian international can boast an excellent record since joining the Molineux outfit on a permanent deal, with 31 strikes in only 93 appearances.

His 13 goals in 19 outings secured the League One title for the Black Country side in 2014, and he had amassed a further 15 goals in the Championship the following season, before a knee injury ruled him out for an extended period.

The Verdict: Dicko is a fantastic young striker, who has perhaps seen his opportunities limited at Molineux this season following the arrival of Nuno Santo.

The Portuguese boss has led something of a revolution at the club this summer, and has recruited heavily from across the globe as he attempts to guide the club back to the fortunes of the Premier League.

Hull are in the market for a new forward having seen Abel Hernandez ruled out for seven months with a ruptured achilles, and Dicko would be the perfect replacement for the Uruguayan international.

QPR boss Ian Holloway is keen to bolster his squad ahead of a push for a top half finish, and the goals Dicko would bring to the side would certainly add the west London side’s cause.

Dicko is good enough to be starting week in week out in the division, and should certainly consider any offers that come his way this summer.

Where should Dicko go this summer?
