Following Ruben Neves success Wolves must target this £16.2m-rated Porto ace if they go up

High-flying Wolves are surely set for a Premier League return and their fans within the Tavern are thrilled with this tremendous achievement. Having been absent from the top-flight since 2012, Wolves seem more prepared than ever to tackle the league head-on. 

Before the start of this campaign, Wolves pulled off the most outrageous transfers, persuading hot prospect Ruben Neves to swap the Champions League for the Championship. This has proved to be an inspired signing with the 21-year-old featuring in all but four Championship games and the midfielder has added a much-needed quality to their engine room.

Ahead of their almost-certain Premier League return, Wolves should use the summer to bring in another Porto man to the club, someone in the form of striker Vincent Aboubakar. His valuation on Transfermarkt at £16.20 million seems to undermine the striker who has bagged 26 goals in 38 games this season and proved an extreme handful for every opponent in his way, though it’s not as if those in the Black Country are strapped for cash.

Wolves have proven to be too strong in attack for Championship sides but with the likes of Leo Bonatini, Helder Costa and Ivan Cavaleiro unaware of the difference in the Premier League, the physical Aboubakar could be the man to ensure the goal flurries continue.

This would, to say the least, be an incredible coup if Wolves could prize Vincent Aboubakar away from league leaders Porto. It could, in fact, prove the difference between survival and prosperity in the top flight of English football.

Landlords Verdict: 

Vincent Aboubakar has been a name mentioned around a number of clubs in recent years but deals to bring him to England have never materialised. Having seen his brilliant performances at Porto again this season, teams should form an orderly line to sign the striker but Wolves, if they’re serious about their Premier League ambitions, have to acquire him.
