According to The Mirror, Wolverhampton Wanderers are keen on landing Manchester United defender Victor Lindelof to boost their squad this summer.

Wolves clinched promotion to the Premier League by winning the Championship title, and having made ambitious signings in the second tier, the same is expected in the top flight.

Super-agent Jorge Mendes has been key to a host of deals at Molineux, and reports suggest that he could have a major part in another move.

The Mirror report that Wolves want to land Manchester United defender Victor Lindelof this summer, just a year on from his £31million switch from Benfica.

It's claimed that Mendes may be crucial to the move given that he represents both Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho and Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo, providing a middle man between the two clubs.

Lindelof, 23, was seen as a major addition to the United back line last summer, but he has endured a frustrating debut season at Old Trafford, making just 13 Premier League starts.

Lindelof's recent run in the United side may suggest he has a role to play under Mourinho next season, but Wolves are ready to offer an escape route, which would surely be a loan move rather than a permanent one.
