    Wolverhampton Wanderers are weighing up an improved deal for striker Kevin Doyle in an attempt to convince him to stay at Molineux.

    The Republic of Ireland international is set to be offered a pay increase to reward his efforts in the first-half of last season, the Express and Star reports.

    The move has been prompted by interest in the £6.5 million man from a number of clubs, including Arsenal, German outfits Schalke and Borussia Dortmund, and even Italian giants Juventus.

    Doyle is only halfway through the four-year deal signed when he joined Wolves from Reading in a club record deal in the summer of 2009.

    The 27-year-old has since become an integral part of Mick McCarthy's team, regularly leading the front line as a lone striker.

    He missed the latter stages of the season and Wolves' dramatic relegation escape through injury, but the club are eager to ensure he is rewarded for the role he played earlier in the season.

    Although he proved an excellent outlet for McCarthy's men, Doyle only weighed-in with six league goals. It is that figure as much as his price tag that might deter potential suitors.

    If it has to be done to keep him, it has to be done. He needs to stay.

    He is down to 2 years left on his contract, Wolves will try to get him to increase the term, if he holds out then we will sell him.

    Once a player gets down to one year left, their value drops through the floor.

    Sounds like good management to me. Improving the squad is as much about keeping your best players as signing new ones.
