Wolves transfer news: Braga defender David Carmo set to join FC Porto

Wolves are set to miss out on another target, with David Carmo reportedly poised to join FC Porto.

According to A Bola, the Braga central defender is all ready to transfer to the Portuguese champions, with the two clubs reaching an agreement.

Porto will supposedly pay £19 million in total for the 22-year-old.

That cost will be spread over three years, with the bulk of it to be paid over the first two.

The player will apparently sign a five-year deal, and he is scheduled for a medical today. An official announcement from Porto is expected very soon.

The news comes after Wolves were linked with Carmo in early June.

O Jogo had reported that Wanderers were interested, and that he was an ideal target for Bruno Lage.

Wolves have lost Romain Saiss, with the Morocco international leaving on a free transfer to join Besiktas.

The star has yet to be replaced, although Max Kilman and Toti Gomes are both options to play on the left of a back three.

Wolves fans are desperately hoping for the addition of a new centre-half this summer.

Wolves were really good at the back for most of last season, but looked vulnerable in the last couple of months.

The club need to strengthen, but it seems Carmo will now not be the man they turn to.

Another target goes begging for Wolves, with David Carmo to join Porto

This is a great bit of business from Porto.

Carmo is a fantastic central defender with high potential. He is strong both on the ground and in the air, and is a really solid ball-player.

And he can also play in a back three and a back four.

He would have made for an exciting signing by Wolves, and he would have fit the transfer policy.

Quite possibly, this could turn out to be a big missed opportunity for Wolves.
