Wolves loanee Ruben Vinagre reportedly eyed by Braga

Wolves full-back Ruben Vinagre is reportedly being targeted by Portuguese outfit SC Braga.

The 21-year-old has spent the first part of the season on loan at Greek side Olympiakos, but it hasn’t been a particularly fruitful spell so far.

Vinagre has made just four appearances to date totalling 155 minutes, and the likelihood of him seeing out the season with the club seems unlikely.

A Bola report Vinagre is now wanted by former Premier League manager Carlos Carvalhal, who has expressed his wishes to Braga president António Salvador.

Europa League side Braga currently have first-choice left-back Francisco Moura out injured, and although his replacement Galeno has done well, they supposedly want additional cover in January.

There is no information provided about Wolves’ stance on the situation.

Presumably, the club would be open to the idea of facilitating a fresh move for Vinagre given how little he is playing over in Greece.

2020/21 is an important season for Vinagre, with his parent club having signed Fernando Marcal in the summer, as well as loaning in Rayan Ait-Nouri from Angers.

There is also Jonny Castro Otto to come back in, so it is vital Vinagre is playing week in week out if he wants to become a regular back at Wolves.
