Wolves transfer news: Fabrizio Romano provides update on Felipe

Atletico Madrid are working hard to try and find a solution for Wolves defender target Felipe, according to an update from journalist Fabrizio Romano.

The centre-half is out of contract at the end of the season.

He is currently not in favour at the Wanda Metropolitano, and the expectation is that he will depart.

Wolves have supposedly been in talks with the Spanish club over the 33-year-old, but things have gone quiet in recent days.

Yesterday, it was reported Wolves had reached an agreement with Atleti for Felipe’s teammate Matheus Cunha.

The attacker is set to undergo a medical at Molineux, and should complete his move very soon.

It remains to be seen if Felipe will follow.

But Fabrizio Romano provided a small update yesterday. He says Atletico are working to find a solution for the player. He adds that Wolves have indeed made an approach. And he also says that Brazilian clubs are in the hunt for him.

Felipe, of course, is a Brazilian player, and may well be tempted to move back to his homeland.

But Wolves are signing Cunha and of course, there are many Portuguese players at Molineux. That may also tempt Portuguese speaker Felipe.

Wolves are expected to be very busy next month.

Julen Lopetegui is keen to make a number of additions to his new squad to give the best chance of pulling away from danger.

And a new centre-half is very much on the agenda.

So Atleti are actively trying to get Felipe a move away from the club.

And it could be that a move to Wolves comes to fruition following the breakthrough with Cunha.

That said, there’s competition from clubs in Brazil so Wolves officials won’t have it easy.

But Cunha making the move is something that might just come into Felipe’s thinking.
