The 24-year-old defensive midfielder has spent the season on loan at SC Braga from Sporting, and has impressed.
However, he won’t be returning to Lisbon for long as a Premier League club are very close to signing him.
The club are ‘working discreetly’ on a deal worth around €15m, but A BOLA believes it is Wolves.
At Wolves he could be viewed as the successor to compatriot Joao Moutinho, a former Sporting star himself.
Wolves are led by Portuguese coach Nuno Espírito Santo and have a big contingent of players from Portugal.
Former youth international Palhinha is under contract with the Leões until 2023.
