Wolverhampton Wanderers have been reacting to a report claiming the club are leading the race for Joao Palhinha.
Correio de Manha have stated that Wolves are in a three-team chase for the 25-year-old along with Everton and Leicester City.
Palhinha played a starring role for Sporting CP in their superb surge to the Primeira Liga title in 2020/21.
And it seems his efforts have not gone unnoticed.
Apparently he could cost in the region of €30 million/£25.7 million.
The claim comes amid continued speculation about the future of Ruben Neves.
On social media, some fans have been reacting to the claim Wolves are leading the charge for Palhinha.
It seems plenty would love to see him head to the Black Country:
He’s very good. Very neat player. Neves has better passing range but Palhinha offers a lot too.

Would be a very good signing. Big powerful midfielder who can physically impose himself on the game. https://t.co/CnTLiE78fi
