Dave Azzopardi has been sharing his thoughts on the possibility of the Midlands club making a move to sign Cardiff City striker Kieffer Moore this summer in the recent video from the Talking Wolves YouTube channel.
After it was recently reported by Football Insider that Wolves are ready to submit an offer of around £7 million for Moore before the end of the transfer window, Azzopardi had this to say on the matter.
He said: “The only concern for me is with this deal – at 29, does £7-10m give you that sell-on, long-term? I don’t think he’s going to be a player that you’re going to get that money back on, but if you can squeeze three or four good years out of him, which he possibly could, then maybe it’s worth looking at.
“Of course, Cardiff City, in the Championship at the moment, won’t want to sell, but a good price for them is obviously going to be tempting and Mick McCarthy, who is now the Cardiff City manager, has said that if there’s a good price, he knows the club are going to be considering it.
“So definitely one to keep our eye on, this hasn’t been really rubbished by anyone of note as of yet, so definitely something in that one.”
TIF Thoughts on Dave Azzopardi’s comments on a potential move for Moore…
Given how the striker managed to score 20 goals in 42 appearances for Cardiff in the Championship last season, it’s easy to see why the Old Gold are apparently interested in signing Moore this summer.

However, with Wolves currently having Raul Jimenez and Fabio Silva in their squad that predominantly play in the centre-forward position, perhaps a move for Moore may not be totally necessary this summer.
On the other hand, the fact that Jimenez was out of action for a large part of last season through injury and the fact that Silva only managed to score four goals in 32 Premier League appearances last season suggests that the club could well be looking at Moore as someone who can add some extra strength and depth to their attacking line.
In our view, if Wolves are able to sign Moore for a relatively low fee and give him a decent amount of games to play, then this could well be a good move from the club if the striker manages to get some goals in the process.
