Wolves have slapped a £14m valuation on their striker, Benik Afobe, a player that they signed from Arsenal for just £2m in Jaunary, report the Daily Mirror.
The Mirror report that City have made two bids for Afobe and both have been rejected, the latest being for £8m. Afobe scored 15 goals in 23 games for Wolves last season and has scored 3 in 5 this term.
Speaking to Sky Sports after Wolves 1-2 win over Barnet, manager Kenny Jackett confirmed the new bid. Afobe was an unused substitute in that game.
‘They (Norwich) have made a bid and it has been turned down,’ he said. ‘Benik Afobe is a Wolves player and when the window shuts he will still be a Wolves player.
‘There is an enormous amount of speculation but he won’t be leaving. There are big things at stake and it is not just about one player.
‘We are looking at the whole picture, the amount of time left in the window, the overall prices. There is so much to consider and everything points towards not letting anyone go.’
It seems that if we want this player, we are really going to have to pawn the family silver.
