Wolves could opt to sign Braga midfielder Al-Musrati if they miss out on Joao Palhinha this summer, according to a fresh transfer rumour.
The Lowdown: New midfielder expected
Bruno Lage will likely be working on a number of new signings in the summer transfer window, with midfield arguably the most important area to strengthen in.
Wolves have been linked with a move for Al-Musrati in the recent past and now a new update is doing the rounds.
The Latest: Al-Musrati to come in?
According to O Jogo, Wolves could now sign the 26-year-old if they are unable to get a deal for Palhinha over the line.
Al-Musrati stood as a key man for Braga last season, starting 30 Primeira Liga matches and 11 Europa League games, with his current deal expiring in 2024.
The Verdict: Strong midfield addition
The importance of a new midfield signing for Wolves this summer cannot be underestimated and Al-Musrati could be a great signing for Wanderers.
At 26, the 40-time capped Libya international is at an ideal age to provide plenty of experience but also still have years left in him at the top level.
Al-Musrati averaged 2 tackles and 2 aerial wins per game across all competitions last term, so he could be a dominant defensive presence, while he also completes six long passes per game, a number identical to Neves’ Premier League average.
