Wolves plotting £20million swoop for TWO strikers – if they can find a way around Financial Fair Play

Wolves are ­plotting a £20million double striker swoop – if they can find a way around Financial Fair Play.

The Molineux club fancy Sheffield Wednesday’s Jordan Rhodes and Norwich City’s Nelson Oliveira.

But Wolves’ top brass fear they might fall foul of FFP regulations if they sanction a huge splurge on the pair.

A summer of heavy ­recruitment has already seen them splash out £15m on Ruben Neves.

And a host of other signings have pushed up the club’s outlay.

However, boss Nuno Espirito Santo believes Wolves lack a cutting edge and wants to ­improve his options.

Portuguese super agent Jorge Mendes is helping set up the deal for Oliveira, who scored off the bench at Fulham on the opening day of the Championship season for the Canaries.

The hitman, who only joined Norwich last ­season from Nottingham Forest, is valued around £8m.

Rhodes – who is one of a number of forwards at the Owls’ disposal –will cost around £12m, leaving Hillsborough just eight months after ­joining them from Middlesbrough.
