Wolves linked with Champions League striker

According to the Birmingham Mail, Wolves could be set to try and bring Brazillian striker Tiquinho Soares to Molineux before the transfer window closes tomorrow.

The Brazillian striker signed for Porto in January on a four-and-a-half year deal from Vitória de Guimarães following a strong start to the season where he managed to score seven goals in 16 games.

Soares’ move to Porto has been an incredible one so far for the Brazilian with him netting 12 times in 15 games and making his debut in the Champions League against finalists Juventus in the Round of 16.

Wolves are desperately searching for a striker and have been linked with a number of names this summer including Sheffield Wednesday’s Jordan Rhodes and Preston North End’s Jordan Hugill.

If Soares moved to Molineux, it would apparently be as part of a loan deal as it is believed the striker has a release clause of €40m.

Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo has made a number of incredible signings so far during his tenure in the managerial hot-seat, bringing a number of big name ex-Portuguese league players to Molineux so far. The most impressive so far arguably has to be Ruben Neves for £15.8m after the midfielder had been linked with a move to Premier League Liverpool and subsequently dropped down a league to second-tier Wolves rather than playing top-flight football as he had done at Porto.

With Soares scoring 12 times in 15 games for Porto, it appears he has unbelievable potential and if he was to move to Wolves and the Championship, he could be a huge boost and may well offer Wolves every chance of a return to the Premier League.
