Wolverhampton Wanderers digest: Neves tracked by European giants; Mitrovic latest; Nuno's plan
sbobet789 Wolves have identified Aleksandar Mitrovic as a summer target with the Newcastle United striker's future hanging in the balance, according to reports. Mitrovic has been in sensational form on loan at Fulham since January, scoring 11 goals in 12 games for the promotion-chasing side including one against Wolves at Craven Cottage in February. His contribution has helped Fulham to fight for second place behind Wolves with Cardiff City and Aston Villa.
Newcastle will start the bidding at £20million for the 23-year-old who has earned plenty of admirers in the Premier League. And Wolves are among the clubs keeping close tabs on Mitrovic's situation, according to ChronicleLive. It is claimed that Toon cheif Rafa Benitez does not consider Mitrovic as part of his plans for next season and will look to sell him this summer, despite the Serbia international's goal return for Fulham.
Brighton had an offer turned down in January and Newcastle are looking to bank a substantial profit on the £13million fee they paid to Anderlecht in 2015. Wolves want to strengthen for their Premier League campaign after winning the title. They have an option to buy Bournemouth loan forward Benik Afobe. It was a transfer that got Wolverhampton Wanderers fans understandably excited in the summer window, writes Joseph Chapman. sbobet789
Thankfully, Ruben Neves has lived up to expectations - and then some. The Portuguese wunderkind swapped Champions League for Championship last summer to reunite with Nuno Espirito Santo and ignite Wolves’ push for the Premier League. Despite his tender years, central midfielder Neves arrived at Molineux with experience aplenty having broken into the first team with Porto.
For a player so young, it was a significant move. The burden of the price tag - making him the club’s record signing, as well as the most expensive ever player in England’s second tier - hasn’t appeared to faze him at any point. Inevitably in the modern game - despite Wolves’ success and Premier League football to come - there’s been speculation surround his future. Neves, were he to be sold tomorrow, would fetch at least three times what Wolves paid for him. sbobet789
