Newcastle United fans have suggested that they now expect Joelinton to become a Wolverhampton Wanderers player, after Nuno’s side were linked with him yesterday.

Joelinton has been linked with a move to Newcastle for much of the summer so far, but Wolves are now said to have joined the race.

Spox claim that the Brazilian powerhouse is on Wolves’ wishlist, which has left Newcastle fans fearing the worst.

Wolves are thought to be looking to add a striker to add competition for Diogo Jota and Raul Jimenez.

Newcastle, meanwhile, surely have to make signing a new number nine a priority.

The Magpies have sold Ayoze Perez and Salomon Rondon's loan has expired, which means that their attacking options now look very limited.

Joelinton would be an exciting addition for either Newcastle or Wolves this summer, as the 22-year-old is regarded as one of the brightest, young talents in Germany.
