Wolves have been speculated about a move for Goncalo Inacio ahead of the summer transfer window, however, a new update has now emerged from a reliable source that could squash the rumours of the potential signing.
Italian journalist and transfer insider Fabrizio Romano has now revealed a transfer update on Inacio and detailed Wolves’ current situation with the player.
“Gonçalo Inácio has chances to leave Sporting this summer, after new contract with release clause for €45m.
“Wolves are not in talks to sign him as of today. No proposal on the table, despite rumours. Many other clubs in the race. #Wolves”
This summer, Bruno Lage has promised big things at Wolves, so supporters will surely be annoyed that a speculated target has not even been approached by the club ahead of the transfer window.
Inacio has had an impressive season for Sporting CP offering both brilliant defending and attacking attributes to his Portuguese club in the Liga Portugal.
The 20-year-old has scored four goals, contributed two assists and created one big chance, making 1.4 tackles and 2.4 clearances, as well as winning 56% of his aerial and ground duels combined and successful in the majority of his dribbles (78%) in 28 league appearances, proving that despite his age he is a complete nuisance for opponents in his position.
To accompany Inacio’s high quality output, Sporting boss Ruben Amorim has sung the player’s praises for his all-round qualities that he has brought to the team since his arrival (via The Mirror);
“[Goncalo] Inacio can play on one side and then come back in, [making it unpredictable for our opposition] so we have been making some good use of his characteristics. Inacio is very fast as well, offers long passing, can play inside and can even get to the top of the pitch before other players, giving [Pedro] Porro more freedom.”
Thanks to the youngster’s fantastic performances he has reportedly attracted attention from some of the biggest clubs in English football with Manchester United and Newcastle United both named as potential suitors for the defender this summer, so if the rumours that Wolves are interested are true they will need to act fast.
