23 year old Icelandic striker Gunnar Heidar Thorvaldsson has told Channel 2 in his homeland that his agent has had talks with Wolves.
Thorvaldsson has been a prolific goalscorer in the Swedish First Division since signing for Halmstad during the 2004 season.
Last week he was due to trial with Sunderland and has also attracted attention from Everton and Hamburg SV.
In the interview he went on to say that he is doesnt want a contract extension at Halmstad, and that The Championship or the SPL would be the natural move, with Wolves being his chosen destination.
His name may not be well known in England, but it certainly is in back in Iceland. He was top scorer there in 3 consecutive seasons before repeating the feat in Sweden.
He has represented his country at U17, U19, U21 and full International level, scoring in every one. Before moving to Halmstad from Iceland he scored 46 goals in 61 games for ═BV Vestmannaeyja. At Halmstad he has been just as deadly.
Perhaps MK Dons did Wolves a favour stalling on the Mcleod deal. Thorvaldsson has a far better goalscoring record, and would appear to be a far better prospect.
The only question mark over him would be the fact Sweden's football season finished in October, leaving him innactive for several months and possibly not at the top of his game.
But conversely he would be fresh from a post season rest and raring to go when Wolves need him most.
Whilst the world thought they were sleeping, Wolves would appear to have been fairly busy, and could now be on the verge of two crucial signings.
Out Of Darkness Cometh Light has never sounded more apt.
