Wolves decide against Rubin raid

31st January 2019, 13:24 by Gareth Freeman

Wolves are understood to have opted against a deadline-day loan move for Rubin Kazan striker Sardar Azmoun.

The Molineux club are keen to bring in a new forward before the January window closes and Iran international Azmoun had appeared to be close to a move.

Wolves agreed a loan fee with Kazan but it is understood the deal has collapsed because the Russian outfit wanted an obligation to buy in the summer, with the Premier League club only prepared to have an option to buy for £11.5million inserted into the deal.

Wolves may still bring in a new striker before the transfer window closes and Southampton's Charlie Austin has been mooted as a potential target.

Any move for Austin is believed to be dependent on whether or not Saints can sign a replacement, with Wolves likely to face competition as Cardiff are also keen.

Liverpool striker Divock Origi has also been suggested as an option although the Reds aren't actively looking to sell - despite his lack of game time this season - and it would take a big bid to convince the league leaders to let the Belgian leave in January.
