Wolves transfer news: Porto keen to sign Wanderers target David Carmo

Wolves have been joined in the hunt for Braga defender David Carmo by FC Porto.

According to A Bola, Sergio Conceicao is interested in bringing the 22-year-old to the club this summer, after he impressed on his return from injury last term.

Carmo missed the majority of the campaign with an ankle fracture.

But he returned in February for Braga, and had a huge impact for the team.

He helped Braga to win seven of their last 12 games, and was a part of seven clean sheets along the way.

Recently, Wolves were linked with a move for Carmo. O Jogo stated that Bruno Lage’s side were one of a number of clubs keen, and that he was an ideal target for Wanderers.

Of course, Wolves have bid farewell to Romain Saiss already this summer.

The Morocco international has joined Besiktas on a free transfer, after he didn’t reach an agreement to extend at Molineux.

The left-footed Carmo is seemingly a fantastic replacement, but Wolves may have their work cut out to land him.

Porto are now keen on the 22-year-old, and can offer Champions League football next season having just won the Portuguese league title.

Manchester United have also shown interest recently.

Wolves should be going all out to sign David Carmo, as Porto show interest

If Wolves officials had any sense they would be making Carmo a priority this summer.

He’s got all the makings of a fantastic centre-half, and can play in the middle of a back three or on the left of one.

Porto’s interest is far from ideal.

As league champions and one of the biggest clubs in Portugal, their pull is large.

They’ve also done business with Braga several times in the past, including signing Willy Boly in 2016.

Wolves could seriously improve their backline by bringing him in, and should absolutely be opening talks with Braga amid interest from Porto.
