According to the news in Portugal, wolves are the ‘likeliest destination’ for Braga forward Paulinho this summer.

Paulinho, who scored 23 times this season – including against Wolves in the Europa League ‘s dramatic 3-3 draw – is set to leave the club in the transfer window, drawing interest from around the continent.

The 27-year-old Portuguese striker has Jorge Mendes as an agent and A Bola says he is looking to pass the client on-and that could take him to Molineux.

Paulinho, formerly Gil Vicente, currently has three more years left on his deal with Braga which will cost up to £ 30 m for any future suitors.

Wolves, who are expecting competition in forwards this summer from Raul Jimenez and Adama Traore, are still in the Europa League which will resume next month.

Away from on-field problems, they are expected to attach in the Transfer window to their close-knit team.

Nuno Espirito Santo is known to want another experienced defender, and this week, free agent Jan Vertonghen has been linked with a move.

Previously, an eight-year stay at Tottenham Hotspur ended with the Belgian international Vertonghen after his deal with the London club expired.

Vertonghen is not a player with a wealth of top-flight and international experience who is likely to go very long without a club; indeed he has several clubs who are interested in him from all over Europe.

All Series A side Roma and Atletico Madrid La Liga outfit are said to consider offers to Vertonghen ahead of the 2020-21 season, but reports are coming from Italy now that Wolves is a viable choice for Vertonghen.
