Wolves transfer news: Wanderers monitoring Shakhtar winger Tete

Wolves are reportedly monitoring Shakhtar Donetsk winger Tete.

According to 90min, the club are looking at the Brazilian with a view to a potential swoop.

The focus of the article is on the Premier League and the FA being ‘highly unlikely’ to allow teams to register players from Ukrainian and Russian clubs.

FIFA had announced last week that foreign coaches and players would be permitted to suspend their contracts until June and sign for other clubs until then.

Those looking to move would apparently have to be registered with their new club by April 7.

But apparently, the Premier League and the FA will not allow English clubs to sign players at this point in the season.

Despite that, it is stated that most English teams are looking to sign players from clubs in Ukraine and Russia in the summer.

Supposedly, Tete is a player who is drawing a fair bit of interest.

Wolves are in the mix, but Leicester City, Brentford, Burnley, Leeds United, Everton and Watford are all there too.

This claim comes after Wolves were linked with Tete’s Shakhtar teammate and fellow countryman Pedrinho.

Tete, valued at £25 million, had been in tremendous form before the Ukrainian Premier League was suspended, scoring 10 goals in 28 games.

In total for Shakhtar, the 22-year-old has 31 goals in 108 games along with 15 assists.

Wolves are stacked for wingers, amid reported Tete interest

Tete is a player with big potential. His numbers are pretty encouraging for a player still quite young.

Arguably though, Wolves don’t really need another winger. There are other areas of the team that need addressing first.

Bruno Lage has some fantastic options with the likes of Daniel Podence, Pedro Neto, Hwang Hee-chan and Chiquinho.

It is possible the club won’t move to sign Francisco Trincao given his poor form on loan, but Lage could well give Morgan Gibbs-White more minutes next term.
