Yacine Brahimi, the winger linked with Wolves this summer, has already moved to clarify his future at Porto this summer.
But Wolves have been linked again today in the Portugal media with the £26m-rated Algerian international who played 40 times for the Primeira Liga champions last season and scored ten times.
He’s been at the Estadio do Dragao since 2014, when he signed from Spanish outfit Granada, and he has scored 40 goals in more than 150 appearances.
Brahimi, formerly of Rennes, is heading into the final year of his contract with Porto and is understood to have a release clause in his current deal, enabling him to a move.
Nuno Espritio Santo is said to be considering a raid on his former club for Brahimi, while it has also been reported that Wolves’ Premier League rivals Everton and Newcastle United are also keen, as are Serie A outfit and Champions League semi-finalists Roma.
But the player has poured cold water on a summer transfer, pointing to the fact that he remains under contract at Porto.
Speaking to Mais Futebol, Brahimi said: “I am part of the club, I have a contract, and I believe that for FC Porto it is of great happiness that Conceicao (Porto’s Head Coach) has renewed his contract.”
“As I said, I have another year of contract,” he said when pushed about a potential move this summer.
More Wolves News
Wolves are taking a closer look at two Singapore internationals after jumping ahead of Leeds United in the pursuit for fresh talent, writes Gregg Evans.
Brothers Irfan and Ikhsan Fandi are set for a trial in the Midlands and have already spoken to boss Nuno Espirito Santo.
Irfan, 20, is a centre-half and Ikhsan, 19, an attacking midfielder. Both have full international caps.
They were linked with a move to Leeds United earlier this summer and both had a trial at Dutch club Groningen in March.
Reports in Singapore revealed the news and explained how the pair had met with Wolves representatives.
It appears that Leeds are no longer in the running.
Wolves fans have been reacting with a mixture of euphoria – and mild corporate distate – to the club’s first Premier League kit in six years.
While the rest of the West Midlands was picking its way through the new Championship fixture list the Molineux outfit were unveiling their new home and away shirts.
The reveal on the official club Website proclaimed: “A return to the club’s traditional old gold and black home strip is accompanied by a modern white and black away kit, both displaying adidas’s iconic three stripes.”
Overall the reaction has been extremely positive – though many supporters feel the logo of sponsors W88 is too prominent.
Here’s a selection of a few of the naysayers – and the overwhelmingly positive response.
@wwfcscott: Sponsor is wayyyy too big
@CSPerks: I know you said it was the biggest sponsor in our history but I didn’t think you meant literally.
@tommylee123: that sponsor is huge
@Vaughany1973: People moaning about size of sponsor! If I was pumping millions in, I’d want it to be seen as well. Best kit in many years
@WolvesTruth: Not for me, it’s good, but it’s not classic old wolves or retro.
@DavidHallard1: Too light. It isn’t old gold.
@neils1974: Logo looks photoshopped on, but I don’t care – what a top. I’m going to live on lettuce and water for the next three months so I can fit into one.
@orangechops99: Which colour’s best for flattening a beer belly Gold or white ? Asking for a mate
@miles_hinton: I’m gonna say one thing…….. Booooooom…..
@HailBaconn: Remove that sponsor and that’d be one of the best looking kits ever, might even make me get one and I’m not even a wolves fan
