According to reports in the Portuguese media, Wolves could be set to make a move for Carlos Vinicius in the summer.

Vinicius has found the back of the net on ten occasions for Spurs this season but most of those goals have come against sub-par opposition in cup competitions, with the Brazilian failing to get too many opportunities in the Premier League.

The Daily Mail reported a few days ago that Tottenham have decided not to take up the £36m option they have to buy the striker permanently from Benfica. 

TVI24 journalist Rui Pedro Braz reports (as relayed by Sport Witness) that Wolves could look to take advantage to snap up the 26-year-old, who has been on their radar for a long time. 

He claims that Wolves had two offers rejected by Benfica for Vinicius before they decided to turn their attention to Fabio Silva last summer.

The report suggests that Benfica would be willing to sell Vinicius for a fee between €25m and €30m (£21.7m-£26m) and that the striker is keen on proving himself in the Premier League.

It might just be that Tottenham consider £36m to be too steep a price for Vinicius. If it is true that Benfica would be willing to sell the striker for under £25m, perhaps the club would change their minds and pursue a permanent deal for the Brazilian.
