Former Wolverhampton Wanderers loanee Vitinha could be sold in January.

That is the claim from A Bola today, who have run a report about Sergio Oliveira.

Ranking EVERY Premier League Team's Record Sale

The 29-year-old is the focus of the article, but it is mentioned at the end that Vitinha is also somebody that is attracting interest from teams across Europe.

It is explained that FC Porto are currently dealing with some financial issues.

They sold Danilo Pereira and Chidozie Collins Awaziem this summer, but A Bola report that the club will need to make another sale in January.

They list Oliveira, Fabio Vieira and Vitinha as the players who could depart.

Vitinha, of course, spent last season on loan at Molineux.

The 21-year-old made 22 appearances across all competitions for Wolves, scoring one brilliant goal against Chorley in the FA Cup.

Vitinha found minutes hard to come by during his time at the club.

Former manager Nuno Espirito Santo was reluctant to use anyone other than Ruben Neves, Leander Dendoncker and Joao Moutinho in midfield as the team struggled for results.

 

The threat of relegation loomed for a while, which may have explained why Nuno opted for more experienced options.

At the end of the season, the club decided against signing Vitinha for £17 million permanently.

No other midfielder was brought in in his place.

Wolves should monitor Vitinha

Wolves should definitely keep tabs on Vitinha to see how he gets on.

For one reason or another he wasn’t signed permanently, but with Porto needing sales, perhaps there can be a chance of a cheaper deal in January.

Wolves should see how he fares.

Vitinha could potentially be great under Bruno Lage.

But of course, there is the question of would he want to come back given how little he featured last term.
