Wolves are interested in signing Carlos Vinicius this summer.
The 26-year old joined the North London club from Benfica on a season-long loan as back-up to Harry Kane, and has been used primarily in cup competitions, scoring ten goals in 22 appearances, although he did find the net in a rare Premier League start against Aston Villa last month.
However, although his loan agreement with Benfica does include an option to buy at around £36 million it is thought that this is beyond what Spurs can afford. It is thought that Tottenham might try and negotiate that fee down at the end of the season,. But now Wolves might be ready to enter the picture.
In January 2020, they reportedly had a £54.3 million bid rejected by Benfica for him, with the Portuguese side valuing him at closer to £85 million. However, that was in pre-Covid days and what he will fetch and what clubs are able to pay, has fallen considerably since then.
