Mota, who plays for Serie B side AC Monza, has a contract with his club until 2024, but his future is now up in the air.

Mendes is said to want to take Mota to Wolves, as he has done with so many of his clients over the years.

But there could be complications. Galliani – Monza’s CEO – is hopeful of keeping Mota.

That said, an offer in the region of €15-20 million/£12.8-£17.1 million could tempt him into a sale.

Mota has made headlines recently for starring with the Portugal U21s.

He had a great Euros with them alongside Wolves loanee Vitinha, scoring three goals.

Mendes facilitates so many deals for the club, there could well be another in the pipeline.

Mota is well known to Vitinha, and one wonders if the latter has potentially talked up playing at Molineux.
