Wolves should use Portuguese links to rival Fulham for Pedro Martelo
Fulham have made an enquiry about Deportivo La Coruna striker Pedro Martelo, according to The Daily Mail.
Martelo is out of contract in the summer and has a bargain buyout clause of just £903k.
Many clubs across Europe are keeping their tabs on Martelo, who currently plays for Deportivo’s B team.
So should Wolves enter the race for the youngster? Given their Portuguese links, this could be a shrewd move.
The Portugal under-20 international has five goals in six games at that level, according to transfermarkt.
And he previously netted three in seven games for Portugal’s under-19 side.
That included the winning goal in Portugal’s successful under-19 European Championship campaign.
And the 19-year-old might be tempted to join the strong Portuguese contingent at Wolves.
With Nuno Espirito Santo and a number of his backroom staff being Portuguese, as well as having eight senior players and four youth players from Portugal, Martelo would have help settling in.
Martelo has failed to score yet for Deportivo B as he looks to make the step up to senior football.
But with an asking price of below £1m, he is worth a gamble for Wolves, who could snap up one of the talents of tomorrow.
