Wolves eyeing Sheffield Utd striker Oli McBurnie

Wolves are eyeing Sheffield United striker Oli McBurnie.

The Sun says Wolves are eyeing a £15million swoop for McBurnie to give Nuno Espirito Santo extra firepower.

The Portuguese coach wants fresh competition for Raul Jimenez next season and the Scotland ace fits the bill.

McBurnie, 24, has had a rough Blades campaign after picking up two injuries - but he could be one of their players who stays at Prem level.

Because McBurnie can play as a target man or off the main striker, he appeals to Wolves who have toiled without the injured Jimenez.

Wolves will back boss Nuno with money after that squad weakness was exposed, although they hope Jimenez will be firing after his fractured skull.

United also plan to cash in on the striker they signed from Swansea when they were first promoted. He is one of their most sellable assets.
