A Sporting Lisbon quartet – including striker Bas Dost – have terminated their contracts with the Portuguese outfit, as The Telegraph reported on Tuesday morning, and Wolverhampton Wanderers fans have been quick to deliver their verdict on whether they club should sign the prolific Dutchman.
The Telegraph says that the 6ft 5in tall centre-forward – along with teammates Gelson Martins, Bruno Fernandes and William Carvalho – have all rescinded their deals claiming “just cause”, after some of the Sporting players were attacked by a group of supporters at their training ground last month.
Meanwhile, the west Midlands outfit, who reportedly want to sign a 6ft midfielder who dominated Ruben Neves in 2018, may well be busy in the transfer market this summer as they look to strengthen their squad ahead of their Premier League return, and they could look to bring in a new striker – especially after Benik Afobe left to join Stoke City on Tuesday.

Wolves supporters took to social media to give their thoughts on a potential move for Dost, and while one said “get him to the Molineux”, another said “I’m not sure he’s compatible with our style”.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…

On the fence about Dost. Some seasons he's been prolific but I'm not sure he's compatible with out style. He's like 6"5 isn't he
