Wolverhampton Wanderers are monitoring Rafael Leão’s situation at AC Milan.
Having arrived at the San Siro last summer, the 21-year-old started regularly in the first half of the campaign.
Zlatan Ibrahimović’s arrival in January forced the Portugal U21 international to spend more time on the bench.
According to Tuttosport, the Swede took the striker ‘under his wing’. Despite having the opportunity to learn from Ibrahimović, the newspaper states it becomes difficult if you’re not playing regularly at the age of 21.
As per the report, the attacker didn’t train with the ‘right attitude’, which is why he lost his place in the starting XI.
While all this was happening, his agent, Jorge Mendes was looking around, and this is where Wolves, Juventus and Atlético Madrid come into the picture.
It’s claimed the Wanderers and the other two sides are ‘ready to go’ for Leão, if they receive a signal from Milan. If Tuttosport are to be believed, a green light for summer transfer is unlikely to come.
The report states ‘something changed’ with the player, and even though he’s not starting, he’s now playing with the ‘right attitude’. The result has been visible as Leão scored three goals in five matches [played for 117 minutes], since the restart.
If there’s any change in Leão’s situation at Milan, Wolves could try to pounce on him and their close relations with Mendes could help them in the transfer.
