Agreeing to spend £34m on Raul Jimenez after a successful loan from Benfica, Wolverhampton might need another striker at the club going forward.
The Mexican and arguably Diogo Jota are currently the only ‘natural’ goalscorers in Nuno Espirito Santo’s squad, and while Wolves currently sit seventh in the Premier League, another player to help find the back of the net more regularly could go a long way.
According to Euro United, who started off as an offshoot of the rather reliable Paris United, Jorge Mendes is once again lending a helping hand, acting on Wolverhampton’s behalf to try and get a deal sorted for Porto’s Moussa Marega, and has ‘submitted an offer’ for the striker.
The Mali international has been in fine form for the Portuguese club this season, scoring 20 goals in 43 league appearances, including six in the Champions League.
It has been previously reported the 28-year-old felt he was ready to try something new, preferably in England, and Molineux could be a good landing spot for him.
No fee is mentioned by Euro United, but the Portuguese press believe Porto would accept €40m for their striker this summer.
We’ll have to wait and see if anyone else picks up on this, but it does make some sense on paper.
