João Palhinha has been linked with a move to Wolves for months, and in recent days it’s felt like a situation which will be resolved sooner rather than later.

Sporting are open to the player’s exit this summer, and Palhinha himself has long been keen on a move to the Premier League. All the pieces have been falling into place for Bruno Lage’s side, and Friday’s edition of Record states the club have reached an ‘agreement in principle’ with the Lisbon club for the transfer.

There figure in that agreement is €20m, and it’s claimed Marco Silva and Fulham have been ‘interfering’ in the deal. That’s sees Record describe the current situation as ‘crazy hours’.

The London club are said to have made it known to Sporting that they’re also formalising a €20m offer, but that bid hasn’t arrived at the Portuguese side yet.

Record suggest that Ruben Neves, and specifically the fact he’s still a Wolves player, could be holding up the deal.

Either way, there’s a certainty from the newspaper that Palhinha will be moving to the Premier League in the coming weeks, it’s just a matter of which club. Wolves clearly seem best placed right now, although Fulham are entering the picture.
