Wolves should plot swoop for defender Filipe Luis
Wolverhampton Wanderers are a lofty seventh in the Premier League table right now and can make a real push for the European positions if they add a couple of fresh faces in the New Year.
Nuno Espirito Santo’s side should be looking to add real quality at Molineux and their recruitment in recent times has been spot on.
One area they should look to bolster options is at left-back/ left wing-back, where they are using versatile full-back Jonny Castro and also promising youngster Ruben Vinagre as back-up.
But the West Midlands club should throw their name into the hat for Atletico Madrid’s Filipe Luis, who previously had one year in England with Chelsea and ended up with a Premier League medal.
According to Marca, Luis will say farewell to Atletico this season and his current contract will expire at the end of the campaign.
The Brazilian defender will be able to enter discussions with clubs in January when he will have just six months left on his deal and that is when Wolves should pounce.
Luis, 33, has been an elite full-back in European football in recent years and helped Atletico to the La Liga crown back in 2014.
He is an extremely experienced left-back that is dependable in defensive situations and can provide a major threat going forward too.
Luis is still a regular in the Atletico XI right now and would be a major high-profile addition if Nuno can pounce.
