Wolves are said to be close to agreeing a deal to bring Polish hit man Tomasz Frankowski to Molineux for a fee said to be in the region of £2million Frankowski has a track record of goals at whatever level he plays at, something Hoddle’s men have missed this season so far.

Earlier this week Glenn Hoddle commented that if Wolves signed a more clinical striker they would have a field day in his side. But the only clear information reaching the presses was in regard to a failure at Tottenham Hotpsur, and a failiure from Derby County.

Wolves fans have long debated the credentials of Izale Mcleod as the instant solution to their short term scoring problem. Many believe that Derby’s assessment of the player, said to be a Birmingham City target should be listened to and remembered.

A late August transfer window bid for Mcleod was rejected by MK Dons at the same time a bid for Derby’s Grezgorz Rasiak was accepted, then bettered by Tottenham Hotspurs. Whilst alarm bells weren’t quite ringing then, there was definitely a resonant hum starting that Wolves could be made to suffer if their forwards were found to be wanting.

At the time, Wolves strike force appeared to be robust enough in muscle and in numbers to see them through the early season, but injuries to Carl Cort, then Kenny Miller, and most recently George Ndah have reduced Hoddle’s options dramatically. Add to that the still very real possibility that Kenny Miller could leave the club this month, and talk turned once again to Rasiak and Mcleod coming to Wolves rescue.

With MK Dons valuation of Mcleod far outweighing Wolves assessment, and Glenn Hoddle earmarking him as a future talent, rather than his saviour, Rasiak was thought to be Hoddle's No1 target to open the Molineux floodgates and fire Wolves up the Championship table.

Todays revelation that Tomasz Frankowski has received a clear offer from the club will be music to Wolves fans ears. A proven goalscorer is what they asked for, and it looks like once again Glenn Hoddle has delivered.

The club have been good to their word in exploiting the emerging markets of Europe. Gabor Gyepes and Denes Rosa, both look like fine aquisitions and Tomasz Frankowski's would certainly be an excellent addition to the Iron Curtain roll call.
