Report: Wolves want £13 million for defender Ruben Vinagre

Wolverhampton Wanderers are reportedly open to selling Ruben Vinagre this summer, amid interest from Benfica.

The wing-back is enjoying a great stint at Farmalicao, following a failed time at Olympiacos in the first-half of the season.

Vinagre made just four appearances for the giants, before Wolves pulled the plug and sent him back to his homeland.

Since joining Farmalicao, Vinagre has been a regular in the side and made 14 appearances.

His form has led to interest from Benfica, who are bracing for interest in the likes of Nuno Mendes and Alex Grimaldo.

According to Record, Wolves would be open to selling Vinagre and have placed a £13 million valuation on the 22-year-old.

Should they receive such a fee, it would see the club make a healthy profit on a player who cost just £2 million (Express & Star).

Wolves should demand more

Maybe Wolves should actually be looking to get more for £30,000-a-week star Vinagre (Spotrac), amid interest from the biggest club in Portugal.

It seems that there isn’t much between him and Rayan Ait-Nouri ability-wise.

And the option to buy Ait-Nouri is reported to be around £20 million (Express & Star), so maybe that should be the aim.
