Wolves are said to be looking ‘quite closely’ at Renato Sanches ahead of the January transfer window.

talkSPORT journalist Alex Crook was speaking this morning to Jim White, giving updates on the activities of a number of Premier League clubs.

Apparently Wolves are looking at potentially swooping for the 24-year-old from Lille again.

Wolves, of course, were heavily linked with Sanches during the last couple of days of the summer window.

Ultimately, the club decided to abandon their pursuit, deeming the knee injury he was carrying too prohibitive.

Sanches had undergone surgery on the issue, causing him to miss a handful of games at the start of the season.

It seems Wolves are ready to go back in for the player next month though.

Crook said: “Wolves were trying to push through a deal for Renato Sanches (on deadline day). That move broke down due to a medical issue. He is now fit and is a player, as I understand it, that Wolves are looking quite closely at again.”

There is a chance that Wolves will not have a free run at Sanches.

There have been reports recently that AC Milan are keen on the Portugal international, as are Arsenal.

An encouraging Wolves update on Renato Sanches

This is some encouraging information. And from the same journalist who broke the story of Wolves’ interest in Sanches in the summer.

Potentially, it won’t be an easy deal to do.

Sanches is a quality player, and is quite unique to a lot of other players in his position.

He would certainly be a major coup for Wolves, who are lacking dynamism in the middle of the park.

After missing out on him in this summer, Wolves successfully landing him in the next window will be cause for celebration for a lot of supporters.
