Wolves: Wanderers ‘most serious’ about signing Joao Palhinha

Wolves: Wanderers ‘most serious’ about signing Joao Palhinha - Wolves Transfer Rumours

Wolves are reportedly the ‘most serious’ about trying to sign Joao Palhinha in the summer transfer window.

The Lowdown: Midfielders needed

Given that Joao Moutinho is now 34, and Ruben Neves has been linked with a move to Arsenal, the Wanderers certainly need to strengthen their numbers in the centre of midfield.

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

Leander Dendoncker and Morgan Gibbs-White are other options for new manager Bruno Lage, but the Midlands club could definitely do with another player in there.

The Latest: Wolves eyeing Palhinha

As per A Bola (via Sport Witness), Palhinha is ‘at the top’ of the priority list for the Molineux faithful.

However, Sporting Lisbon coach Ruben Amorim is desperate to keep the Portugal international, as he sees him as an ‘important element’ of his squad and ‘will do anything’ for him to stay put.

Nonetheless, Sporting would be willing to listen to any offers starting at €30m (£25.8m), and WWFC are seen as the ‘most serious’ team in the race for his signature, and would be willing to spend a ‘substantial portion’ of their transfer budget in order to get their man.

The Verdict: Sign him

Palhinha would be a shrewd addition for Wolves in the middle of the park, given that he was such a key player in his side’s recent title win, winning no fewer than 9.1 duels a game, while also averaging a whopping 3.3 tackles, 1.5 interceptions and 1.2 clearances per match (Sofascore).

Should Wolves sign Palhinha?

Yes

Yes

No

No

At six-foot-two-inches tall, he should have no trouble at all in adapting to both the aerial and physical demands of the Premier League, and at 25, Palhinha is at a good age for the Wanderers to pounce in this window, likely getting the prime years out of the midfielder before perhaps selling on for a decent fee in the future.
