Wolverhampton Wanderers are expected to trigger their option to buy on Vitinha before June 30.

According to Record, the 21-year-old is likely to turn his move to Molineux permanent after spending the 2020/21 season in the Black Country.

Vitinha made 22 appearances for the club, scoring one goal and making one assist.

He didn’t really play as much as fans had hoped, with former manager Nuno Espirito Santo preferred more experienced options like Leander Dendoncker, Ruben Neves and Joao Moutinho.

But when he did get the nod, Vitinha showed glimpses of his quality.

And it seems Wolves officials were left impressed enough.

Apparently the plan now is to buy Vitinha, and there are no signs that he will be playing for Porto next term.

 

That’s despite manager Sergio Conceicao apparently being a fan of his.

Vitinha could become a star at Wolves

This news, if true, should be welcomed with open arms by supporters.

Vitinha has tremendous promise, but last term he just didn’t get enough chances to flaunt his talents.

Some of his performances for the Portugal U21s of late are proof he has the potential to be a star.

The sooner this deal is wrapped up, the better.
