Wolves fans have been getting into a frenzy over the news that they are in talks with Valencia right-back Joao Cancelo.
The Portuguese defender has been on loan at Internazionale this season and Wolves are preparing to make a £35million bid for the 24-year-old, according to reports.
Cancelo was previously a transfer target for Manchester United, but Nuno Espirito Santo is hoping to add another of his Portuguese compatriots to the Wolves squad, to join star players Diogo Jota and Ruben Neves.
Nuno previously worked with Cancelo at the Mestalla and the player is also managed by super-agent Jorge Mendes who has had a big hand in many of Wolves’ recent transfers.
If Wolves pull off the deal, it will smash the club’s current transfer record of £15.8million for Ruben Neves.
Understandably, Wolves fans have been getting rather excited about the transfer news and have been making their opinions known on social media.
Imaging Neves pinging the ball out wide to Cancelo who whips it into Silva. Thing of dreams that. #wwfc

if Wolves really get Cancelo, Guedes, keep hold on to Neves & maintain their targets at this level they’re serious contenders for top 6 next season make no mistake about it

Regarding Cancelo. Don’t forget he is great friends with Cavaleiro and his mrs. Maybe he has had a quiet word in his ear too. All add’s up really, Nuno took him to Valencia. Mendes client. Good relationship with current Wolves players. #wwfc @Wolves
