Report: Wolves among the clubs chasing Hoffenheim talent Joelinton

The Brazilian was in decent form in the Bundesliga during the 2018/19 campaign.

Wolverhampton Wanderers are said to be among a clutch of clubs chasing the signature of Hoffenheim striker Joelinton, according to Kicker.

The 22-year-old netted 11 goals and registered nine assists last season and has previously attracted the interest of Newcastle, according to The Chronicle.

It seems unlikely that Wolves would land the Brazilian on the cheap with the striker under contract until 2022.

The Kicker report suggests that Wolves can afford a multi-million-pound transfer this summer, however, thanks to their rich Chinese owners, Fosun International.

It is fair to suggest that Wolves could do with another out-and-out centre forward. Raul Jiminez is the occupant of that position just now but more depth would be ideal.

 

Joelinton has been known to operate out wide before and his arrival at Molineux may allow Nuno Espirito Santo the chance to mix things up.

TBR Verdict

The chance to play European football with Wolves might prove an attractive proposition for Joelinton to consider.

Boss Julian Nagelsmann has got some great performances out of the Brazilian player and Santo could have a similar impact on his career.

Joelinton would fit effortlessly into the ethos of a young and energetic squad in place at Molineux and his signing could be a coup.
