Afobe only rejoined Wolves permanently at the start of the month after spending half of the 2017-18 on loan from Bournemouth to help the Molineux Stadium outfit to the English Championship title, thus, gaining promotion to the Premier League.

The deal is expected to be made permanent in January with £12.5 million [$17m] the reported amount for the Arsenal graduate, set to help Gary Rowett's side achieve their aim of an immediate return to the top-flight.
“If there’s one signing you want to make to get you out of the Championship Benik is that kind of player," coach Rowett said of the striker's purchase.
