According to reliable BBC journalist Pat Murphy, Wolverhampton Wanderers have withdrawn their pursuit of Alvaro Negredo.
Ambitious English Championship side Wolverhampton Wanderers have certainly made a huge impact in the transfer market this summer with the signings of Rúben Neves, Roderick Miranda, Barry Douglas, Ryan Bennett, John Ruddy, Phil Ofosu-Ayeh and Willy Boly so far.
Despite the influx of so many high profile players to Molineux though, manager Nuno Espirito Santo is believed to be keen on further strengthening his squad and recent reports had claimed that the Portuguese boss had identified Alvaro Negredo as the ideal target to improve his attacking lineup.
Negredo has extensive knowledge of the English game, having previously played for the likes of Manchester City and Middlesbrough, and Wolves seemed to have a realistic chance of signing the Spaniard as he is unwanted by current club Valencia.
However, according to BBC journalist Pat Murphy, Wolves have pulled out of the race to sign Negredo and this is due to the fact that they are unwilling to agree to the striker’s wage demands of around £100,000-per-week.
Understand @Wolves not in for Alvaro Negredo. Wages of around £100 a wk deemed too much. Not close to signing anyone else at the moment
