Lots of Wolves fans have been left buzzing as a transfer update emerged on Joao Palhinha.
Should Wolves sign Palhinha?
He is reportedly free to leave Sporting Lisbon before the summer window shuts, but not for anything less than his €60m (£51.1m) release clause.
Described as a ‘special’ player last season by his manager Ruben Amorim, Palhinha was key in Sporting’s 2020/21 title win, winning no fewer than 9.1 of his duels per game, as well as averaging 3.3 tackles, 1.5 interceptions and 1.2 clearances per match (Sofascore).
A fee of £51.1m would be extortionate for the Molineux club to pay, but if they can negotiate that price down with the Liga NOS champions, then Palhinha is certainly a player worth pursuing.

These Wolves supporters were buzzing as the transfer update was shared on Twitter, with one fan saying that it would be ‘class’ if they were to sign Palhinha and another urging chairman Jeff Shi to act:
“No brainer, do it now”
“Worth it, @wolves do it”
“Get him in!!!”
“This would be class!”
“Please let this happen. Neves and Palhinha, come on Jeff”
“Get him in and quick!”
