Wolverhampton Wanderers have put Sporting Lisbon midfielder Joao Palhinha at the top of their summer transfer target list, as reported by Molineux News.
As rumours swirl over the future of Portuguese international star Ruben Neves in the West Midlands [90MIN], the Wanderers have turned their attention towards the 25-year-old, who could turn out to be Bruno Lage’s first signing [BBC].
Would Palhinha be a good signing for Wolves?
After returing from a loan spell at Braga, Palhinha was pretty much an ever-present figure for the Lisbon side in 2020/21 as he made 38 appearances in all competitions, registering two goals [Transfermarkt].
Asserting his dominance over the Liga NOS, the recent Portugal cap obtained nine Man of the Match awards, which should come as great encouragement to the Wolves faithful [WhoScored].
In light of these recent developments, it was no wonder that loads of Wanderers diehards took to social media to salivate over the thought of his potential arrival in England.
Wolves fans react:
Replying to popular Wolverhampton Wanderers fan channel Talking Wolves, here is how some supporters summarized their thoughts following this latest update:
“Keep Neves & play these two together!! Awesome partnership in the making!!”
