Wolverhampton Wanderers reportedly paid just £2m for a player widely tipped by Molineux fans to get to the very top of the game.
A number of Wolverhampton Wanderers fans have taken to Twitter to praise Ruben Vinagre's display in Thursday night's 4-0 win over Pyunik at Molineux which powered Wolves into the Europa League playoff round.
Nuno Espirito Santo's side, leading 4-0 from the first leg in Armenia, had to wait to make the breakthrough on the night at Molineux but once it came, there was no stopping the Old Gold from another comprehensive victory.
Neto opened the scoring with his first goal for Wolves, tapping in from close range on 54 minutes after a low pass across the face of goal by Patrick Cutrone, before providing the assist for academy graduate Morgan Gibbs-White to claim his maiden competitive Wanderers strike four minutes later.
Vinagre, a constant danger going forward, made it three for Wolves with a close-range finish, the ball helped on by Cutrone after great work by Adama Traore, and the cherry on top came from substitute Diogo Jota with a superb overhead volley set up by Raul Jimenez's fine scooped chip.
Here is some of the Wanderers fan reaction about Vinagre, who is progressing superbly in the old gold, raising the prospect of just how much better he can get:
Ruben Vinagre is a serious, serious talent.— WeAreWolves.com (@WeAreWolves_com) 15 August 2019
Every time he plays he impresses even more.— WolvesDXB (@WolvesDXB) 15 August 2019
I stand by it, Vinagre is possibly the most exciting player of his age and position in Europe right now. He’s going right to the very top!#WWFC
Saiss, Cutrone, Vinagre stand outs for me tonight! Jota with a filthy finish for the 4th goal! #wwfc— Carl Baldwin (@TheCarlBaldwin) 15 August 2019

Glad we made the 9 changes, was good to see the new lads start.— Mattie Bagnall (@MattieJBagnall) 15 August 2019
Neto is some young player. Wouldn't stop hassling, like a skillful Stephen Hunt Vinagre just gets better and better. Cutrone looked good too
Chuffed for @Morgangibbs27 getting his first goal#wwfc
The sauce on our left wing Vinagre and Neto link up play unreal #WWFC— Tom (@Tom_Durnall) 15 August 2019
If Ruben Vinagre & Pedro Neto was English the hype around them would be crazy #wwfc— (@liam93b) 15 August 2019
