Real Zaragoza have turned their attention to Wolverhampton Wanderers striker Rafa Mir but may struggle to get a deal for the forward over the line.

Mir is currently out on loan at Nottingham Forest, with Wolves having sent him to the Championship to gain experience.

He has struggled for game-time at Forest, though, making just two starts in the league this season as Lewis Grabban has led the line.

His departure from the club is ‘certain’ to happen in January, according to El Periódico de Aragón and that’s alerted Real Zaragoza.

They need to sign a forward and had looked to tie up a deal for Darío Poveda, but he picked up a cruciate ligament injury in his right knee and is now out injured for the rest of the season.

As such, they need to find an alternative and Mir is one of two options they are looking at. They had tried to sign him from Wolves in the summer but failed to get a deal done due to his wages.

Wolves wanted Zaragoza to cover a percentage of his wages, but the Spanish club were not in a position to make such an agreement.

That remains the case now meaning the chances of Mir ending up in Zaragoza are ‘remote’ at this moment in time, leaving him either sitting on the bench at Nottingham Forest or returning to Wolves in January and looking for a new loan elsewhere.
