STUNNER! Wolves on brink of landing Porto sensation Fabio Silva

Wolves are launching a club record bid for Porto striker sensation Fabio Silva.

The Daily Mail says Wolves are finalising a club record £35million fee for Porto's exciting young forward Silva.

The 18-year-old striker had a £112million buy out clause to reflect his talent but the Portuguese giants have been forced to consider substantially lower offers following he covid pandemic.

Silva has already drawn comparisons with Portugal captain Cristiano Ronaldo and became the youngest player to represent Porto when he made his first team debut last year aged 17 years and 22 days.

Silva and his father Jorge, a former midfielder with Boavista, met with Wolves officials including executive chairman Jeff Shi last week and has now agreed a contract until 2025 with the option of a further year.

The deal is expected to be confirmed by the Premier League side later today.
