'If It's Football, It's Vital'

The Final Piece Of The Puzzle?

With it being silly season, it's difficult to seperate the wheat from the chaff. That applies to the players hawked around by their agents as much as the rumours circulated by the press. But if this current story turns out to have any substance Glenn Hoddle may well have come up with what he says will solve Wolves inability to win.

Tomasz Frankowski is probably best known by the public for scoring against England at Old Trafford,but he means a whole lot more to the Poles.

He's been aquiring admirers from a young age, he's worked with Arsene Wenger at Grampus 8, scored 13 goals in 26 European matches, and he's won everything there is to win in Poland. He's a Polish institution.

2 League Cups, 2 Polish Cups, 4 Championships and he's three times been Polish Premier League golden boot winner.

Last season he scored 25 goals in 26 domestic league games and 6 in 8 European ties. Frankowski has scored a career 115 goals in 181 appearances in the Polish top flight which is how he earned his nickname, The Goal Hunter. Oh,and he was once voted Polish Player of the Year.

This season in Spain he has already racked up 8 goals in 13 club appearances.He's also scored 10 goals in 17 appearances for Poland


Looking at the names so far linked with Wolves, Frankowski's stands out by some way. At 31 he is by no means on his last legs. Yet. Although a career far from free of injury may catch up with him at some point in the future. He hasnt always travelled well either. But its worth remembering that in the first 6 years of his career he only played 38 club games.

His record for last season at club, European and International level suggests he's not in decline. Neither does this years so far. But what now the cat is out of the bag? Are the club being played by a playa? Or has there been an accidental disclosure in one of Frankowski's native newspapers?

The next few days should see further developments as the kind of interest players of Frankowski's track record tend to attract starts to emerge. There is no indication yet of how far any negotiations between Wolves and Elche might have gone. Seven figure sums are being mentioned that unlike Izale Mcleod's bounty, cant be far off the cash sums required.

Hoddle has the money, and its difficult to think where Wolves will find another available striker with a record like Frankowski's. Assuming there is a chance of a deal on the table, the club must surely pursue Frankowski's signature as pro-actively as they can. If they really believe all we are missing is this one final piece, a clinical finisher, Frankowski represents an excellent chance to prove it. Although the irony of missing yet another goal, but this one a a goalscorer, would not be lost on anyone.
