Reports claim that Wolves have entered the race to sign Alex Pritchard.

There are a number of Championship clubs interested in signing Pritchard, but the majority are said to consider his £9m valuation as too high.

For Wolves, such a price is unlikely to be an issue. Recently taken over by Fosun International, Wolves look like they are willing to spend huge money to win back a place in the Premier League. Considering that Pritchard scored 12 goals for Brentford during his last season in the division, this wouldn’t be a daunting price for any club making a serious gamble, as they try to make it back to the big time.

With Pritchard unproven in the Premier League, perhaps it’s likelier that a Championship side with money to burn will splash out on him. If it seems unlikely that a Championship team would pay so much, consider that more has been spent by second-tier clubs in the past and that a certain Blackburn Rovers once made serious bids for Gary Lineker and Paul Stewart on their route from obscurity to becoming Premier League champions.

  1. You left the bit out about Wolves now being richer than Spurs sitting between the gunners and your good selves in the wealth table 😉

  2. This is complete madness. Pritchard is a highly talented player and Pochettino would be foolish to let him go.

    What is going on with Spurs? This has been such a poor transfer window. We will be playing in the champions league and the big premier league teams will be better this year. We still need cover for Dembele and Alderweireld.

  3. So Spurs are letting go of their best academy prospect in years.

    Only Ledley King and Harry Kane have come through the academy and got regular first team football.

    What is the point of having an academy, if players are not given the chance to play in the first team?

  4. Personally, as a Brentford fan, I also think you’d be making a big mistake in letting him go. He very much made the difference for us the season before last. £9 million though? That lets us out!

  5. Think realistically at a lower price with add ons would be more like it but still spurs would get there valuation fee in the end. Fosun have there targets with supper agent Mendes on Fosuns books to do the wolves deals in Europe with a mix of home grown talent Pritchard would do well and the fans would love to have him up here.
    In year or two wolves should be back in the premier league and Pritchard could do no worse than enjoy the ride that is sure to make the rest of the premier big boys sit up and take notice. but putting that aside wish Spurs all the best for the coming season.
