Wolves, West Ham and Crystal Palace keen on Coventry striker Viktor Gyokeres

Wolverhampton Wanderers are keen on signing Coventry striker Viktor Gyokeres, reports Sky Sports.

Crystal Palace and West Ham United are also interested in recruiting the Sweden international’s services.

However, Wolves are favourites to land Gyokeres, but talks are yet to begin between both parties.

The future of the 24-year-old at the Championship club will depend on what happens during the promotion play-offs.

Coventry finished fifth at the end of the regular season and will face Middlesbrough in the semi-final tie.

Wolves may need to look elsewhere if the Sky Blues are promoted, as Gyokeres could be tempted to remain with the club.

He joined Coventry from Brighton & Hove Albion permanently in 2021 after a season on loan with them.

Gyokeres ended the campaign with 21 goals and ten assists in 46 Championship games.

He bagged 17 league goals and five assists last term and will be eager to finally prove himself in the Premier League.

Wolves could lose Raul Jimenez this summer, with around 13 months left on his current deal.

They have scored the least goals (30) in the Premier League this term and could do with a quality finisher.

Joining Palace or West Ham could appeal to Gyokeres, but he will get a chance to establish himself as a starter at Wolves.

Manager Julien Lopetegui has plans to guide his side to Europe next term, and recruiting a consistent goalscorer would come in handy.

Brighton did not give Gyokeres a chance to prove himself in the top flight after signing him from Brommapojkarna in January 2018.

He will finally get a chance to show what he is made of after Everton failed in a bid to sign him in January.
