Wolves: Wanderers eye Joao Palhinha; Ruben Vinagre may be sacrificed - Wolves Transfer Rumours

Wolves are reportedly eyeing a move for Joao Palhinha in the summer transfer window, and Ruben Vinagre may be used as part of a deal.

The Lowdown: Vinagre not needed

Vinagre is clearly surplus to requirements at the Midlands club, given that he was shipped out on loan to two different teams in the 2020/21 season.

Only the biggest Wolves fans will get 100% on this 2020/21 season quiz. First up, who made the most appearances?

At just 22 years of age, the left-back still holds some market value, and so the Molineux faithful may be able to use this to their advantage.

The Latest: Palhinha priority

As per A Bola (via Sport Witness), Palhinha is reportedly a ‘priority target’ for the Wanderers, but his price may be a problem, as Sporting Lisbon want €30m (£25.8m) to prize him away.

However, Vinagre could be used as part of a deal to sign Palhinha, as Sporting are interested in his signature, but WWFC will face competition from Napoli for Palhinha.

The Verdict: Sign him

Bruno Lage will need all the help that he can get in his first season with Wolves and in the Premier League in general, and Palhinha would certainly be a welcome addition to his squad.

Should Wolves sign Palhinha?

Yes

Yes

No

No

He was such a key man in his team’s domestic title win, winning no fewer than 9.1 duels per game, while also averaging a whopping 3.3 tackles, 1.5 interceptions and 1.2 clearances a match (Sofascore).

At 25 years of age, Palhinha has not entered his peak yet either, and by adding Vinagre as part of a potential deal, it could turn out to be a real bargain for a truly destructive player to sit just in front of the defence.
