Wolves are unlikely to re-sign Vitinha after a loan spell at the club last season, according to reliable journalist Luke Hatfield.
The Lowdown: Vitinha’s loan spell at Wolves
The 21-year-old joined Wanderers from Porto for the 2020/21 campaign but struggled to make an impact for the Old Gold, only starting five Premier League matches and registering a solitary assist in 19 top-flight appearances.
The Portuguese midfielder has been linked with a return to Molineux in recent times, and Hatfield has now provided an update on the situation.
Who should Wolves sign?
The Latest: Hatfield discusses potential return
Speaking to GIVEMESPORT, the journalist admitted that he struggles to see the move happening, with Wolves unsure over whether or not he is good enough.
Hatfield claimed: “I’m not too sure Vitinha is the answer. Like I said, they’ve had a good look at him before, and unless he’s shown a marked improvement, I don’t think he’s a player that they’d be ridiculously keen on.”
The Verdict: Look elsewhere
While Vitinha is still a young player learning his trade, he struggled in his first spell at Wolves and it would feel like a risk bringing him back. Granted, he has enjoyed a 91.3% pass completion rate for Porto in the league this season, but the Primeira Liga is a level down from the quality of the Premier League.
Wolves should search elsewhere for midfield reinforcements and look for players who can immediately take them up a level under Bruno Lage, with rumoured target Aaron Ramsey a good example, having accumulated 91 goal involvements in the Premier League (40 goals, 51 assists).
