Report shares breakdown of Wolves' deal to sign Chiquinho

Wolves have made Chiquinho their second signing of the January window, and he is already in training with Bruno Lage’s side.

A report from Portugal has claimed that Estoril, the club Wolves bought the forward from, retain a sell-on clause of 20 per cent.

Record report that it would cost Wolves €2.5m (£2.1 million) to buy it out, and own 100 per cent of Chiquinho’s rights.

Wolves apparently have a similar arrangement with Angers for Rayan Ait-Nouri, something which may cost them transfer income in the long run.

That may also be instrumental to getting the deal over the line in the first place, so it is swings and roundabouts.

Chiquinho seems like a decent value signing and Wolves could buy out the clause for a relatively modest fee if he exploded and became worth a fortune.

It will be interesting to see if the frontman goes into Lage’s squad straight away, for the weekend clash against Brentford.

Lage is not exactly flush with options so he may want to take a close look at the Portugal under-21 international sooner rather than later.

With Fabio Silva now performing better and seemingly going up in Lage’s estimations, Wolves now have improved attacking options as the business end of the season approaches.
