A Portuguese news outlet has claimed that Wolves will now sign Vitinha in the summer transfer window.
The Lowdown: Vitinha promise
Upon signing Vitinha on a loan deal from FC Porto at the start of the 2020/21 season, Jeff Shi dubbed him as an ‘exciting’ player and a ‘special young talent’, with an ‘abundance of technique and creativity’ (Wolves).
Should Wolves sign Vitinha?
This was clearly evident by the influence that he had on his teammates, as he recorded the highest pass success percentage (90.3%) out of any Wolves player to have played 10 or more matches in the Premier League last term (Whoscored).
The Latest: Vitinha will be signed
He will reportedly sign a contract of ‘four or five’ years, after originally starting pre-season training with FC Porto.
The Verdict: Great news
It is certainly great news to hear that Vitinha will join up with the Wanderers permanently under new manager Bruno Lage.
He became a fans favourite very quickly during his short time at WWFC, with some supporters recently showing their delight at the news.
Nonetheless, at just 21 years of age, Vitinha has a lot of potential, and so £17.1m could turn out to be an absolute bargain if he fulfils it, providing that there are no remaining obstacles in the way to get the deal over the line.
