Wolves have been linked with midfielder Joao Palhinha of Sporting since Nuno Espirito Santo’s reign and they are seemingly still keen.
The Portugal international was first rumoured to be of interest to Wolves back in 2020 and the club have still not improved their central midfield situation.
And as per reports in Portugal, Wolves are still scouting him ahead of the January transfer window.
Diario de Noticias claim that Wolves, Manchester United and Newcastle were watching the midfielder when Sporting faced Porto.
The game ended in a 2-2 draw between two of the biggest clubs in Portugal and the midfielder was actually sent off deep into stoppage time.
There was a late melee as tempers boiled over with the spoils set to be shared and Palhinha is a combative defensive midfielder.
Can Wolves really afford to spend big on another high class central midfielder? Perhaps if the money comes in for Adama Traore.
That said, a central defender is also a priority and it remains to be seen what Bruno Lage wants to do and how far his summer budget can stretch.
He has been a long term target and Wolves clearly like what they see. It is clear how he would fit into the culture of the club and would have many international teammates to help him settle if he does eventually make the move.
