Wolves should hijack Newcastle interest in Andreas Samaris

Wolverhampton Wanderers should be plotting to plug their midfield options in the January transfer window and could do with an extra body for the second half of the season.

Manager Nuno Espirito Santo has Ruben Neves and Joao Moutinho as his two main central midfield options, while youngster Morgan Gibbs-White and versatile ace Romain Saiss provide alternative options.

The West Midlands club should consider ambushing Newcastle United’s pursuit of Benfica midfielder Andreas Samaris.

According to the Daily Mirror, Newcastle are keen to reignite their interest in Samaris in January and previously were quoted a £10million price tag in the summer.

The report details the 29-year-old hopes to earn a free transfer exit in January and in any event he could leave for a bargain fee as his contract expires in the summer.

Wolves should try beat Newcastle to his signature and already have Raul Jimenez on loan at Molineux this season from Benfica.

Samaris is a no-nonsense central midfielder renowned for his aggression and the enforcer could be a strong fit in the Premier League.

The Greece international has 32 senior caps for his country and has the experience of 139 appearances for Benfica under his belt.

Samaris has struggled for Benfica this season by making just four appearances across all competitions and needs a fresh move, which is why Wolves should try add him to their ranks and he would provide excellent cover as a defensive midfielder.
