Wolves should hijack interest in Portuguese defender Andre Almeida

Wolverhampton Wanderers are enjoying a decent season where they are still in the race for a European finish in the Premier League, while the FA Cup draw appears to have opened up for them.

But manager Nuno Espirito Santo doesn’t quite have the complete squad yet and could ideally do with another right wing-back to compete with Matt Doherty.

The West Midlands club already have a strong Portuguese contingent in the first team with the likes of Rui Patricio, Ruben Neves, Joao Moutinho, Helder Costa, Ivan Cavaleiro, Diogo Jota and Ruben Vinagre.

It would surely be easy for another Portuguese player to adapt at Molineux and that is why the club should place Benfica Andre Almeida on their radar.

According to O Jogo, Premier League club Fulham have made a £7million offer for the Portuguese defender.

 

But Wolves should hijack interest in the 28-year-old right-back, as he would be a perfect fit for Wolves and provide great competition for places.

He has great pedigree having featured in every Champions League group stage match for Benfica this season and has eight senior international caps for his country.

Almeida has chipped in with six assists across all competitions this season to highlight his attacking qualities and he could be tailor-made for a wing-back role.
