Southampton have also been linked with Wood, as Ralph Hassenhuttl is looking to provide his side with a different striking option.
The Saints striking options currently line up as Danny Ings, Che Adams, Michael Obafemi and The Walcott, although the latter is often deployed as a winger, whilst Obafemi only played 57 minutes worth of league football last campaign.
Ings only has 12 months left on his contract at St Mary’s and is reportedly looking to move on as the 28-year-old is looking for a new challenge, with the likes of Manchester City, Manchester United and Tottenham all being linked, following a great stint at the south coast club, managing 46 goals and 10 assists in 100 appearances.
The signing of Wood would very much bring in a guaranteed income of goals and could also help those around him such as Adams flourish, as he would effectively help the former Birmingham man get into the game more rather than being an out and out poacher like Ings.
Wood is priced at 16/1 to sign for the Saints for the upcoming 2021/22 campaign.
