Wolves: Wanderers gifted Joao Palhinha boost

Wolves: Wanderers gifted Joao Palhinha boost -Wolves News

Wolves have been boosted in their efforts to sign Joao Palhinha in the summer transfer window, with Sporting CP reportedly willing to cash in on the midfielder.

The Lowdown: Wolves keen on Palhinha

Bruno Lage will be looking to make inroads in the transfer market this summer, ensuring his squad continues to go from strength to strength in the Premier League.

One player Wolves have been linked with signing numerous times is Palhinha, with the 26-year-old shining for Sporting this season, making six starts in the Champions League.

Ruben Amorim has described the midfielder as a ‘special’ player and Wanderers may have been boosted in their attempts to snap him up.

The Latest: Wanderers boosted

According to Correio da Manha [via Sport Witness], Palhinha is at the ‘top of the list’ of players that Sporting are happy to sell this summer, in order to be boosted financially.

Not only that, but the report also states that it ‘seems impossible’ the Portuguese giants could now demand €40million (£33.5m) for his services, due to a dip in form. That means Wolves could sign him on the cheap.

The Verdict: Ideal Neves replacement

With Ruben Neves looking increasingly likely to leave Wolves at the end of the season, Palhinha looks like a tailor-made replacement for his compatriot.

He possesses Neves’ deep-lying expertise, enjoying an 87.4% pass completion rate in the Primeira Liga this season from that position, as well as winning 1.5 aerial duels per match.

Filling the void left in midfield will be vital if the expected exit does happen and Palhinha is surely the front-runner to solve that problem, especially if Wanderers could now sign him in a cut-price deal.
