Liverpool and Barcelona monitoring Wolves left-back

Both Liverpool and Barcelona are monitoring Wolves left-back Ruben Vinagre.

The Portuguese under-19 international, who has just turned 20, joined Wolves on loan from Monaco when they were in the Championship, and impressed sufficiently during their title winning run that he was signed permanently by the club last June, signing a five-year deal.

This season he has continued to improve, making 15 League appearances, and now his form has been such that he has been tracked by scouts from both Liverpool and Barcelona, according to Portuguese outlet, O Jogo, with summer bids for the player widely expected.

Vinagre came off the bench on Sunday in Wolves FA Cup semi-final against Watford, but was unable to prevent his side, who had led by two goals to nil with eleven minutes to play, losing 3 -2 to their opponents after extra-time.

A former Sporting Lisbon Academy player, Vinagre moved to Monaco in 2016, but never made a senior appearance for them before his loan transfer to Wolves.
