Back in March we covered claims from Portugal of Wolves interest in Gedson Fernandes.

It was squeezed on a front page which was mainly about Joao Felix, and Benfica’s insistence they’d get a lot of money for the player this summer, which they did.

Wolves had been scouting Benfica around that time, which was unusual for the club. Despite doing plenty of business in the Portuguese market, Nuno Espirito Santo’s side aren’t often on scouting lists.

Gedson was said to have caught the eye, and it was explained Benfica would be looking for a minimum of €40m to sell the 20 year old midfielder.

Wolves interest was backed up a few days later and then it largely went quiet.

Saturday’s edition of Record reports Wolves have ‘recently’ made a €35m offer for the player. The Premier League club deemed that to be a ‘fair’ amount for their youngster, however, Benfica disagreed.

They’re not in great need of money at the moment, and with Gedson having a €120m buyout clause they’re also well protected.
