Bournemouth failed to lure Porto’s Diogo Queiros to the Premier League in the summer but will Wolverhampton Wanderers now succeed?
Could Wolverhampton Wanderers succeed where Bournemouth failed and lure Diogo Queiros to the Premier League?
The Guardian claimed in May that Eddie Howe’s Cherries were interested in signing the highly-rated Porto defender, having scouted him on a number of occasions last season in action for the Primeira Liga champions’ B team.
But, while a switch to the Vitality Stadium never materialised, Queiros is once again being linked with a move to England. According to A Bola, Wolves are now leading the chase for the 19-year-old, with the Chinese-backed side willing to pay around £10 million in the New Year.
It remains to be seen whether this is enough to convince Porto to sell. A Bola adds that a move to Bournemouth fell through because the South Coast club could not fulfil the demands made by Sergio Conceicao’s side.
Queiros, who captained Portugal’s U19s to the European Championship title in the summer, has not made a single first-team appearance all season but remains a regular for the second string in Portugal’s second tier.
Should the teenager move to Molineux, he would be adding to a heavily Iberian-influenced dressing room.
