Wolverhampton Wanderers have reportedly been joined in the race for Vitinha by Tottenham Hotspur.

According to a report from Mercado Azul, the north London club could make a play for the FC Porto man.

Vitinha, of course, spent the 2020/21 season on loan at Molineux.

He made 22 appearances for the club, scoring one goal.

Wolves had an £18 million option to buy Vitinha. But the deadline for that clause has passed.

However, that have been reports Wolves have been in contract with Porto about possibly still signing Vitinha for the same or a similar price.

But Wolves’ chances of signing the 21-year-old may now have just gotten slightly harder.

 

Spurs, now managed by Nuno Espirito Santo of course, could move for Vitinha. Both men are represented by Jorgen Mendes.

The super-agent, according to Mercato Azul, has already presented Spurs the chance to sign the maestro.

Wolves may need to get a move on

Spurs being interest in Vitinha is perhaps no surprise given they are now managed by Nuno.

That said, the 47-year-old was often reluctant to turn to him last season, begging the question of much he actually rated him.

But if Wolves do want to bring Vitinha back, the club shouldn’t waste too much time.

A move to Spurs could still appeal to the player, and it would really sting if he went there and flourished.
