Wolverhampton Wanderers are reportedly back chasing Benfica striker Carlos Vinícius.

The claims come from Portuguese TV show Mais Transferências today. They say the Premier League side see the player as the perfect replacement for Raúl Jiménez.

Journalist Rui Pedro Braz says the Mexican forward could leave Wolves for around €80m this summer, with a lot ‘being talked’ about the interest from Juventus and Manchester United.

The Molineux side would then bring Carlos Vinícius to replace him, and currently have the Brazilian as a ‘priority target’ for this transfer window.

Benfica are spending a lot with signings this summer and would be happy to bring cash in with some sales. Club president Luís Filipe Vieira claimed back in January that he turned down a bid of €60m for Carlos Vinícius. Now TVI24 says that in case this amount is offered again, then the Eagles would accept it.

Carlos Vinícius scored 24 goals and made 13 assists for Benfica this season. The Eagles paid only €17m for his signing a year ago, and now have the chance of making a huge profit.
