Wolverhampton Wanderers are one of four sides reportedly tracking Atletico Madrid defender Filipe Luis as his contract looks set to expire – and Wolves fans have reacted on Twitter.
Goal have claimed the 33-year-old, who won the Premier League with Chelsea in 2014-15, is unlikely to sign a new deal with Diego Simeone’s side. It has attracted interest from Nuno Espirito Santo’s side.
Wolves are not the only club interested in the Brazil international, though. It is also claimed that French champions Paris Saint-Germain, Brazilian side Flamengo and another unnamed Spanish side are also keen.
Luis scored twice for Atletico this season in 32 league and cup appearances, as well as laying on three assists. But Simeone has opted against handing him a new deal.
Wolves have options on the left side of the defence, after completing the permanent signing of Spain international Jonny back in January. He is now regarded as one of the best left-backs outside of the top six.
Ruben Vinagre remains Jonny’s back-up, so the need for Luis may not be a great one. Nevertheless, some Wolves fans are excited on Twitter at being linked with the 38-time international, while others think he is too old.
i’d take him anyway for the leadership and experience, has he got the legs for a lwb which is crucial for our team? if not i could see nuno converting him to a cb
