Times are exciting at Wolverhampton Wanderers at the moment. The club have been taken over by a Chinese group with help from Portuguese super-agent Jorge Mendes.

The move has seen the club bring in Silvio from Atletico Madrid and Helder Costa and Joao Teixeira from Benfica.

They are also in protracted negotiations regarding the signature of Brazilian talent Anderson Talisca in a second-tier transfer record deal.

So who else could they target from Jorge Mendes’ stable?

Here are three players represented by Mendes’ Gestifute agency who Wolves should target…

Nelson Oliveira – Benfica

The Portuguese attacker spent last season on loan at Nottingham Forest and impressed – netting nine goals in 29 games, although his performances bettered his goal tally.

He is still believed to be available at Benfica and would be a brilliant signing from Wolves.

Ricardo Carvalho – Free agent

The veteran centre-back was released by Monaco earlier today.

A Euro 2016 winner and three-time Premier League champion with Chelsea he may be 38-years-old but still has definite pedigree.

Adrian Lopez – Porto

Signed by Porto last summer he has struggled to settle in Portuguese football.

He ended up out on loan at Villarreal last season and Wolves would surely enjoy bringing this classy operator in on a similar deal.
