Wolves are reportedly considering Ruben Amorim as their next head coach.

Amorim has been at the helm at Sporting since March 2020 and has done a tremendous job at the Portuguese giants.

He’s won the Taca de Portugal three times already, and also delivered Sporting’s first league title in 19 years at the end of 2020/21.

The 37-year-old has carved out a reputation for being one of Europe’s most talented young coaches.

Naturally, Wolves are being linked with several Portuguese names at the moment.

Pedro Martins is thought to be another potential option.

But Amorin is seemingly the top choice at the time of writing.

But it could be difficult for Wolves to land him according to Sky Sports reporter Anton Toloui. He spoke on Sky Sports News this morning about Wolves’ search for a new manager, and stated that Amorim is on a long-term contract.

He said: “Amorim though, former Portugal international, is on a long-term contract at Sporting. So, getting him out of that will be potentially costly for Wolves’.

In terms of a potential figure, The Sun do provide some information.

They claim it could take a whopping £20 million in compensation to prise him away, which is round about the same amount Wolves paid for Nathan Collins this summer.

Links to Amorim should be welcomed.

He has done fantastic work at Sporting, who play really good football and score goals regularly.

They’ve had a bit of tricky start his term, but have still managed to average two goals per game.

His brand of football actually seems to deliver an end product, which is something Wolves fans are absolutely desperate to see at Molineux.

He would potentially be very expensive. But he would perhaps be a gamble worth taking. He’s won titles at Sporting, got them into the Champions League and is clearly a talent.
