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.
