Report: Everton and Wolves lead pursuit for defender Andre Almeida

Everton and Wolverhampton Wanderers are the pair leading the chase to sign Benfica defender Andre Almeida.

According to the Sun, the Premier League duo are the frontrunners for the 28-year-old in the summer transfer window.

It is understood that he may be available for a bargain price of £10million due to his modest wages.

The report details that English trio Leicester City, Southampton and Brighton are also keen on the Portuguese full-back.

Almeida has made it clear he wants to test himself in the Premier League, after winning the Liga Nos with Benfica this season.

 

The right-back has made 53 appearances across all competitions this term and provided a brilliant 12 assists in return, which highlights his quality when going forward.

TBR’s View:

Almeida has just enjoyed a brilliant campaign in his homeland with Portugal and looks like he will have a positive impact in the Premier League.

The attack-minded defender could certainly compete with Seamus Coleman at Goodison Park if Everton win the race for him, with his £10million price a potential bargain for the finished article.

Meanwhile, Wolves already have a strong Portuguese contingent in their squad and Almeida would compete with right wing-back Matt Doherty if he moves to Molineux.

Almeida has senior international caps for Portugal and experience at Champions League level, which is why he looks a shrewd addition for Everton or Wolves if they win the battle for him.
