Croatian midfielder linked with Wolves switch

28th February 2019, 10:49 by Tom McGarry

Wolves are reportedly keeping tabs on Croatian midfielder Josip Vukovic and could make their move during the summer.

The Molineux club have been keeping tabs on the 26-year-old for some time, with scouts having been sent to watch him action over recent weeks.

However, Wolves are not the only Premier League club being linked with the Maritimo ace, with Watford and Leicester also said to be interested, while Scottish giants Rangers could also enter the race.

Vukovic is believed to be valued at around £4million and, at that price, he could be a gamble worth taking, particularly as he has impressed in his 18 appearances for Maritimo since joining them from Olimpik Donetsk last summer.

Other clubs could also enter the race for the defensive midfielder, although it appears Chelsea, who were previously in the hunt, have now cooled their interest.

Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo has had success when signing players from Portuguese clubs in the past, with the likes of Ruben Neves, Willy Boly and Helder Costa having all moving from the Primeira Liga.
