The clubs are currently in talks about the potential for the Brazilian to move mid-season.

He has struggled for starts this season, and it could be that the Spanish club allow him to leave.

But it’s not just Cunha from Atleti that Wolves are interested in.

According to Fabrizio Romano, Wanderers also want to sign Felipe, who is also Brazilian.

Felipe, 33, has been with Atleti since 2019, joining from FC Porto.

Like Cunha, he has also struggled for minutes this season, making just three appearances.

He will be out of contract next summer, and so there is a chance that Atleti will accept a cut-price fee for him in January.

Wolves are currently short of centre-back options, with Nathan Collins, Maximilian Kilman, Toti Gomes and YErson Mosquera the options available to Julen Lopetegui.

Wanderers are known to be in the market for another centre-half, having tried to sign Craig Dawson and then Jason Denayer.

Felipe could be a good, low-cost addition for Wolves in January

Felipe is the kind of signing Wolves need to make.

The current Wolves defenders are talented. But they are also young and inxperienced.

There was a lot of change in the summer, and the likes of Conor Coady, Romain Saiss and Willy Boly all leaving has had a significant impact.

Felipe would bring a wealth of experience.

He’s clocked up 114 appearances for Atletico since he signed, and you don’t play for a Diego Simeone team if you don’t have something about you. He’s also won league titles win Spain, Brazil and Portugal, and has a couple of caps for the national team.

As a 33-year-old, you would think he’d be good for rotating in every now and then for Kilman or Collins.
