Latest Wolves transfer news as Chelsea name their asking price for one of their targets.

Wolves will have to pay a club record fee if they want to sign Chelsea striker Armando Broja, according to a report.

Gary O'Neil and the Wolves transfer committee are on the search for a striker this month, and yesterday saw Broja's name pop up. The Spanish striker is available for transfer, and his departure from Stamford Bridge is not dependent on Mauricio Pochettino getting his own number nine this month.

Wolves are said to be in competition with Europa Conference League winners West Ham and Premier League rivals Fulham for Broja. All three clubs however may be priced out of a move after The Telegraph said that Chelsea's asking price for Broja is £50m.

In the Telegraph's report, Chelsea have looked to the £72m that Manchester United paid for Ramus Hojlund and they believe that Broja should command a sizeable fee. Before joining United, Hojlund had scored 27 goals in his club career, and ten of those came at Atalanta. To date, Broja has 23 career goals including loan spells at Vitesse and Southampton, and because he is under contract until 2028, they believe that fee is merited.

Broja's rumoured transfer fee would make him the most costliest player in the clubs history if they were to go through with it. The £42.2m that Wolves paid Sporting CP for Matheus Nunes in 2022 is their current club record fee, however they did make a profit of nearly £11m on him.

In comparison to Wolves' Broja rivals Fulham's most expensive signing in their history is Jean Michael Seri and they paid a reported £27m back in 2018 whilst West Ham paid £45m for forward Sebastian Haller.

Broja has scored two goals in 17 games for Chelsea this season having made just seven starts and only one of his goals have come in the Premier League. He has eight goals and three assists in 58 appearances in the English top-flight. His only other experience of senior level football was at Viesse where he netted 11 goals in 34 games in the Eredivisie.
