Benfica winger Ola John and Atletico Madrid full-back Silvio are targets for Wolverhampton Wanderers, according to Portuguese daily, Record.

John, who spent last season on loan to Reading, was linked with a move to Wolves' rivals West Bromwich Albion earlier this summer, following the Baggies' appointment of former Royals man Nick Hammond as technical director (Birmingham Mail).

However, last week's takeover at Molineux, in which Portuguese super agent Jorge Mendes is said to be involved, has seen Kenny Jackett's side seemingly enter the race.

And John's former teammate Silvio, who has been borrowed by Benfica in each of the past three campaigns, could follow him to England, the report claims.

Wolves are said to have missed out on a number of targets as they awaited the completion of their £30 million takeover, however, their recruitment drive is expected to gather pace ahead of the new season.

Last week, the Sun reported that a trio of Portuguese stars could also make moves to Molineux this summer.

Monaco's Ivan Cavaleiro, who cost the Ligue 1 side £12.5 million from Benfica a year ago, and Eagles pair Pele and Helder Costa were the three players named.
