According to a report from German publication Kicker, Wolves are showing an interest in Hoffenheim forward Joelinton.
Wolves have been extremely slow on the transfer front this summer with no new arrivals walking through the doors of Molineux as of yet.
However, there could finally be some movement in terms of incomings after their interest in Joelinton was revealed by Kicker.
The 22-year-old has also attracted the interest of Newcastle this summer too with multiple reports claiming they were eyeing up a deal.
Raul Jimenez has recently just concluded an arduous season which climaxed with victory for Mexico in the Gold Cup final.
Nuno Santo has already admitted that he’ll have two weeks off after his spell away on international duty, saying it would be a big mistake to rush him back.
After all, Jimenez featured 44 times last term for Wolves, as well as playing his part for his country in recent weeks.
And with that in mind, the Midlands club are likely to need someone to take the strain off of him, particularly with a season in the Europa League looming.
That player could well be Joelinton.
Like his potential new teammate, the Hoffenheim forward is excellent both in front of goal and at providing opportunities for his teammates.
So with that in mind, he seems like the perfect player to lessen the burden of their 17-goal man from last season.

A potential price tag of between £30m-£40m sounds alarming, but considering his record in the Bundesliga last season and his age, he could be a worthwhile investment.
If it helps to reduce burnout on one of the star men as well, it would be a smart decision to sign him.
