Wolves consider swap offer for Sporting CP midfielder Joao Palhinha

Wolves have made a move for Sporting CP midfielder Joao Palhinha.

The 25-year-old is said to be Bruno Lage's no. 1 priority due to Ruben Neves' expected departure to Arsenal.

Palhinha is currently on duty with Wolves trio Neves, Rui Patricio and Nelson Semedo for Portugal at Euro 2020.

The defensive-minded midfielder stands at 6ft 3in and can also fill in at centre-back.

A Bola says he'd cost the Midlands outfit £30m, with left wing-back Ruben Vinagre heading in the other direction.
