Earlier today we covered claims from Portugal which explained Wolves need to bring in funds, likely from the sale of Ruben Neves, before they make an official offer for Sporting’s Matheus Nunes.
It was also suggested this is what held up a move for Joao Palhinha, with the midfielder now on the verge of joining Fulham.
Should money be tight at Wolves this summer then it would be no surprise if they look at lower cost signings in the Portuguese market. Jornal de Notícias pushes André Almeida forward as an option, and a player Bruno Lage’s side have taken an interest it.
This isn’t the 31-year-old André Almeida at Benfica, but instead the 22-year-old of the same name at Vitória de Guimarães.
FC Porto are also interested as they look at a replacement for Vitinha, who is expected to join PSG. Almeida has represented at Portugal at every level from U15 to U21, and became an important player for Vitória last season.
He’s valued at ‘between €4m and €6m’, which would be an easy fee for Wolves to pay.
