Wolves transfer news: Proposal made for Atletico defender Felipe

Wolves have reportedly tabled a proposal for Atletico Madrid defender Felipe.

Matheus Cunha and Mario Lemina have both already arrived at the club.

And supposedly, two more players could be on their way this week in Joao Gomes of Flamengo, and Pablo Sarabia of Paris Saint-Germain.

But Wolves are also looking to add another centre-back.

Craig Dawson is again on Wolves’ radar, after they failed to sign him last summer.

But Felipe, 33, is also a player that is still of interest.

And now, Brazilian journalist Vene Casagrande – who was the man to break the news about Gomes heading to Wolves – is reporting that a new proposal has been made for Felipe.

The club is negotiating his signing, and hopeful of landing him.

Wolves were first linked with Felipe at the start of December, and it was thought at one stage that he could have been signed as a part of a double deal with Cunha.

Wolves ended up only bringing Cunha in, but it seems they are still very keen to get Felipe too.

The speculation is starting up again, after things had gone quiet in early January.

Felipe to Wolves could soon come to fruition as Vene Casagrande provides update

Wolves fans will take heart from the fact that Casagrande has provided an update on this.

He was the one who broke the news about Gomes last week. Although the Brazilian hasn’t officially signed yet, he has supposedly flown to England ahead of his proposed transfer.

Felipe would be a really good signing by Wolves.

He is the kind of player that is needed. Nathan Collins and Maximilian Kilman are excellent players with bright futures.

But an experienced centre-half needs to come in and provide cover and competition.
