Wolves look set to sign young Le Havre star Nathael Julan, according to the Shropshire Star.

The club has been on the lookout for a new forward to bring in and a move now looks on the cards for the young striker.

Wolves have only Joe Mason remaining as a recognised striker due to the club deciding not to keep Adam Le Fondre at the club after his loan spell from Cardiff City.

Their attention has now turned to Julan, who stands at an impressive 6’4 and the tall striker could give manager Kenny Jackett more options when it comes to his teams playing style.

The 19-year old is now expected to sign for Wolves in the coming days, with the fee to current club Le Havre said to be nominal.

Jackett was alerted to the emergence of Julan by former Wolves player Ludo Pollett, who has also spent time with Le Havre. Pollett is said to be scouting for the club for the past year and has now passed his evaluation of his own player to Wolves.

Julan is highly expected to go straight into Scott Sellars Under21 squad for the time being with fellow French starlet Sylvain Deslandes, who signed from Caen last summer.

However, Julan may have the opportunity to fight for a first team place straight away if Wolves are unable to sign a new striker before the start of preseason.

If Jackett utilises the forward in his preseason games, Julan could well be the main striker for Wolves sooner than expected.

The exciting prospect can play across the attacking line, but is said to be more suited to both a number 10 or number 9 role.
