Wolverhampton Wanderers have continued their growth into the Portuguese world this season with the addition of even more players and coaches from Portugal. The dismissal of Nuno Espirito Santo brought in his compatriot Bruno Lage, while the sale of Rui Patrício to Roma allowed Jose Sa to join the club too.
Essentially, if you've got talent and you're from Portugal, there's a good chance Wolves want something to do with you as 11 first team players are Portuguese, plus a further two who are loaned out, plus six of the nine heads of their respective departments in the coaching staff.
Renato Sanches has now naturally been linked to the club following an excellent year in France where he was one of the standout players as Lille triumphed in Ligue 1 against all the odds to snatch the title for the first time in a decade.
Sanches has already played in the Premier League with Swansea where he was on loan from Bayern Munich, and this truly was a torrid time for him with his form failing to show any sign of what earned him the move to the Bundesliga heavyweights. Injuries were also a major factor in this.
As of now, Wolves will want him just because he is Portuguese, as this is how the club operates these days. At the same time, he's refound his form with Lille and it would no doubt be a smart purchase, if they can look past his days at Swansea in 2017/18. The Renato Sanches transfer odds to Wolves are priced at 9/4.
