Nuno Espirito Santo has a lot of work to do at Molineux this summer, if he is to guide his side to a successful Premier League campaign next season.

One particular area where the Portuguese will surely be looking to strengthen is his attacking midfield options, with more creativity and guile needed in the final third.

With this in mind, Wolves should consider making a bold move for Inter Milan ace Joao Mario, who has been strongly linked with moves to West Ham and Tottenham, according to Italian media outlet Tuttosport.

The 25-year-old spent the second half of last season on loan with the Hammers, but Spurs have emerged as surprise contenders for his signature, with Inter keen on signing Mousa Dembele.

Wolves could usurp their Premier League rivals, however, by offering Mario guaranteed first-team football, as well as the opportunity to join Nuno's exciting Portuguese revolution at Molineux.

The 36-capped Portugal international possesses exceptional technical ability, and his wonderful vision, combined with a keen eye for a killer pass would help Wolves improve upon the potency of their play in the final third.

Mario himself recently claimed that he is worth £45 million in today's market, but that seems to be wishful thinking from the Portuguese midfielder.

According to Sky Sports, Inter could be tempted to sell the 25-year-old for around £26 million, and that amount should be easily attainable for Wolves.

If Nuno does manage to bring Mario to Molineux, it could turn out to be a signing of real significance for the Black Country outfit.
