Imagine Joao Moutinho in the middle of the park alongside Wolves' Ruben Neves. Well, it could be a reality judging by reports.
Wolves secured promotion to the Premier League last season as champions, winning the league in stunning fashion amassing an impressive 99 points.
Nuno Espírito Santo guided his star sided to glory which included the likes of Ivan Cavaleiro and the aforementioned Neves, among many others.
Ahead of the new season, he's recruited Portugal international Rui Patricio.
And it now appears he's drafting in Moutinho from AS Monaco, too.
I'm being told that Monaco midfielder Joao Moutinho, 31, is set to sign for @Wolves . Not sure of the details of the deal yet.- Tim Nash (@TimNash_1) July 22, 2018
Moutinho is the third highest capped player in Portugal history behind Cristiano Ronaldo (154) and Luis Figo (127) and is expected to be the new central midfield partner of @rubendsneves_- Tim Nash (@TimNash_1) July 22, 2018
What's more, further reports suggest he'll command a transfer fee of £5 million. FIVE MILLION. Not a bad piece of business for a player who has gained over 100 international caps.
Moutinho, who currently plies his trade in France, featured for Portugal at the World Cup just like Patricio.
The brilliant player has made a name for himself by producing heroics in midfield.
He rose to prominence in Portugal with Sporting Lisbon before completing a move to Porto where he eventually joined AS Monaco in 2013.
So far this window, Wolves have snapped up Paulo Alves and Raul Jimenez not to mention sealing permanent deals for Willy Boly, Ruben Vinagre and Leo Bonatini.
