Wolves transfer news: Wanderers targeting Haris Seferovic

Wolves are now being linked with a move for Haris Seferovic.

According to Portuguese outlet Correio da Manha, the 30-year-old striker is leaving Benfica this summer.

It’s looking like Darwin Nunez will be joining Liverpool, and the club could also be bidding farewell to the Switzerland international.

Interestingly, this claim from Correio comes after Seferovic was recently pictured with Wolves manager Bruno Lage at a hotel.

The pair met before Switzerland’s game with Portugal in the Nations League.

Lage knows the star well having obviously managed Benfica previously, and there had been speculation that the meeting was about a potential transfer to Molineux this summer.

Correio’s claim perhaps now adds fuel to the fire. Maybe there was more to that meeting than just two old friends just catching up.

Wolves are expected to sign a striker this summer, having struggled in the final third throughout 2021/22.

Raul Jimenez scored six and Fabio Silva didn’t score at all. And the wide fowards didn’t really chip in all that much.

Seferovic was limited to just 15 appearances last season thanks to injury.

But he has a decent record for Benfica, scoring 74 goals and making 26 assists in 188 appearances.

Under Lage, he bagged 27 goals and made 10 assists in 67 appearances.

According to Correio, Benfica would hope to sell for around £8.5 million. The player has two years remaining in his current contract.

Seferovic didn’t play much at all last season, making him a potentially risky signing for Wolves this summer.

That said, Lage has obviously worked with him and knows the qualities he can bring.

His record for Benfica is good, and he is obviously a player with lots of experience at the top level.

Perhaps he could make for a decent addition, although it would be good if Wolves could also bring in someone a bit younger. Perhaps Goncalo Guedes, who can play through the middle and out wide.
