Clubs in England supposedly eyeing former Wolves loanee Vitinha

Several clubs from England are reportedly eyeing a move for former Wolves loanee Vitinha.

According to a report from Correio da Manha today, Vitinha’s rise at FC Porto is attracting attention.

The midfielder spent last season on loan at Molineux, but couldn’t force his way into the starting XI and stay there.

Nuno Espirito Santo routinely selected the likes of Ruben Neves, Joao Moutinho and Leander Dendoncker ahead of him, as he tried to steer the club away from a potential relegation battle.

In the end, that goal was achieved fairly comfortably. But fans felt Vitinha should have played far more than he did.

Ultimately, the club decided against signing the player permanently for £17 million.

Vitinha remained with Porto for the 2021/22 season, and he has quickly set about showing Wolves what they’re missing.

Obviously Wolves are going well in the Premier League at the moment and aren’t particularly missing him.

But there is no doubt that Vitinha has been doing some seriously developing this term.

He’s clocked up 21 appearances across all competitions so far. One more, and he’ll equal his tally for the whole of last season with Wolves.

Vitinha has regularly come in for praise on social media for his performances. And it seems other clubs are beginning to take notice.

Correio da Manha say his agent Jorge Mendes has already had a number of enquiries about him.

Vitinha returning to England would frustrate many a Wolves fan

Vitinha making a move back to the Premier League this month with another club will probably not go down well with some Wolves fans.

He is shining regularly for Porto right now and it’s clear he is a player with massive potential.

He is already threatening to look like an oversight by Wolves.

It would really rub it in if he returned to England with a different club and started doing the business.

He was there on a plate for Wolves. Ultimately, his lack of minutes was arguably the reason for him not sticking around.
