Wolves are lining up a swoop for Huddersfield Town midfielder Conor Coady.
Former Liverpool man Coady, aged 22, made a big impression with the Terriers last season and missed just one league game.
He can also play in defence and scored a 30-yard screamer at Molineux during Huddersfield’s 3-1 win last October.
It is thought Wolves would have to pay up to £2m to secure Coady’s signature.
He only joined Town last summer for around £400,000, having spent 2013/14 on loan at Sheffield United in League One.
Huddersfield recently signed former Middlesbrough man Dean Whitehead and could be tempted to cash in on the highly-rated Merseyside-born youngster.
He left Anfield after playing just two first team games for the Reds having come through the Liverpool youth system.
Coady spent 2013/14 on loan at League One side Sheffield United, playing 50 games in all competitions and scoring six goals.
Last year he netted three times in 48 matches for Huddersfield.
If Coady did move to Molineux it would leave Jackett overloaded with midfielders.
They currently have Kevin McDonald, Jack Price, David Edwards, Lee Evans, Tommy Rowe and George Saville in central midfield, while James Henry, Michael Jacobs and Jed Wallace can also play centrally.
Jacobs has been challenged to stake a claim for Bakary Sako's soon-to-be-vacant left wing role.Subscribe to our Newsletter
