Chelsea joined by Wolves in £30m transfer race for Porto hotshot Marega

WOLVES have joined Premier League rival Chelsea in the race for Porto striker Moussa Marega, according to reports.

Porto’s £30million star netted 21 times in 46 appearances last season which had attracted attention from Chelsea chiefs last January.

Wolves have earmarked the 28-year-old Mali striker as backup for hitmen Raul Jimenez and Diogo Jota, Daily Mirror reports.

Jimenez bagged 13 goals last season while Jota scored nine helping Wolves to Premier League best finish of seventh.

However, Molineux boss Nuno Espirito Santo wants to bolster his attacking line while also bringing in cover for his striking pair.

Understudy forwards Ivan Cavaleiro, Helder Costa and Adama Traore only amounted five goals between them last season.

Marega has two years left on his Estadio do Dragao deal boasting a £30m release clause.

The striker has intentions to make a switch to England with West Ham and Everton also contenders for his signature.

Last summer the Hammers opened talks with the player and could swoop again for him this term.
