Hull City Approach Huddersfield For Wells

According to a report by The Daily Mail, Huddersfield Town have been approached by English League Championship team Hull City regarding Nahki Wells.

Hull City and Wolverhampton Wanderers are both reportedly interested in Huddersfield striker Wells.

Wells was a key part of the Huddersfield Town team that won promotion last term, as he played 47 games in all competitions, scoring ten goals.

However, Huddersfield Town have signed Laurent Depoitre and Steve Mounie this summer and Wells appears to have dropped down the pecking order at the John Smith’s Stadium.

The 9-cap Bermuda international could now be set for the exit door this summer.

Hull City have made an initial approach over the possibility of signing the diminutive 5ft 7in striker.

The Tigers recently lost key striker Abel Hernandez for around six months with an Achilles injury and this is a crucial blow.

After the Uruguayan international netted a hat trick against Burton Albion, many Hull fans were holding high hopes that he would replicate his form of the 2015/16 season, where he netted 20 league goals.

However, he has been consigned to the injury room for a while and Hull are instead looking at Wells.

They face competition from Wolves, though, who will be looking to add to their current options of Leo Bonatini, Bright Enobakhare and Nouha Dicko.

Wells provides something different from your conventional center forward.

The 27-year-old is not great in the air due to his small frame but he is a finisher, he is nippy and he can tenacious when he puts his mind to it.

However, Reading have previously been linked with a £10m swoop and this is a steep price for a striker who is only likely to get around the ten goal mark.
