Wolves: Joao Palhinha summer move eyed -Wolves Transfer Rumours

Wolves are reportedly now eyeing up a move for Joao Palhinha once the summer transfer window opens.

The Lowdown: All-rounder

Palhinha has built up a reputation as an all-round midfield player, as he seems to be able to do everything in the middle of the park.

Sports journalist Josh Bunting has previously described him as an ‘artist‘ and a ‘sensational player‘ when watching him in the Portuguese top-flight last month, suggesting that he is someone that glides across the pitch despite his six-foot-three stature.

Should Wolves sign Palhinha?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Portuguese football expert Zach Lowy has noted his ‘Casemiro-esque‘ ability to commit a number of fouls every week without getting himself booked, showing that he thrives in the ugly side of the game as well.

Nonetheless, with Joao Moutinho now 35 years of age, the Midlands club may have to find a replacement for him sooner rather than later.

The Latest: Wolves lurking

As per Jornal de Noticias (via Sport Witness), the Molineux faithful ‘remain attentive’ to Palhinha, after sending scouts to watch him play recently.

Where did Wolves sign these players from? First up, Freddy Eastwood...

They are one of a number of English teams ‘interested’ in signing him this summer, after his agents had a few approaches for him in January, but the Wanderers must cough up at least €30m (£25m) for his services.

The Verdict: No-brainer

With Moutinho likely to be heading out of the door soon, it is a no-brainer for the club to add to their Portuguese contingent by signing Palhinha.

Of course, he is a player that Bruno Lage will know very well, having managed in the Portuguese league with Benfica while Palhinha was playing for Braga.

However, with Manchester United also reportedly linked, given Palhinha’s friendship with fellow Portugal international Cristiano Ronaldo, they may need to swoop in early if they are to land his signature, as at 26 years of age, Palhinha may only have one big move left in his career.
