Report claims Wolves are keen on Euro 2020 hero Seferovic

Wolves are one of two English clubs keen on Switzerland international Haris Seferovic this summer.

According to Portuguese outlet Correio da Manhã, the striker is on Bruno Lage’s radar.

Seferovic plays for Benfica at club level and scored 26 goals for them in all competitions last season.

And he netted twice on Monday night as the Swiss caused the shock of Euro 2020 so far by knocking out France.


They drew 3-3 before clinching victory on penalties, with superstar Kylian Mbappe missing the crucial kick.

He’s one of a clutch of players on three goals, chasing down current Golden Boot leader Cristiano Ronaldo on five.

Seferovic has a chance to add to his tally against Spain on Friday night when a place in the semi-finals is on the line.

But his strong Euros form is not really a good thing for Wolves, according to the report.


Asking price has now doubled

The report claims Benfica would have wanted 15 million euros (£12.9 million) before the tournament.

Now, that price has doubled on the back of his strong showing.

Wolves wouldn’t be buying him just because he’s had a good summer. Recruitment in football has evolved far beyond just buying a player on the back of a tournament.

He’s had an outstanding season, but it seems his summer exploits have pushed his asking price up into a range Wolves might find difficult to match.

Seferovic has a release clause of 60 million euros (£51.2 million) but it seems a deal is there to be done for far less than that.
