Wolverhampton Wanderers are still keen on Benfica striker Carlos Vinicius.

Benfica president Luis Felipe Vieira recently confirmed that he rejected a €60m bid for Vinicius in January.

Portuguese newspaper Record claim the bid came from Wolves, and that their offer for the forward remains on the table.

Vieira claims he would have sold Vinicius for €100m in the upcoming transfer window under different circumstances, with football clubs across Europe feeling the pinch due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The striker is protected by a €100m release clause – and although Wolves’ €60m offer remains active according to Record, it feels unlikely that even a Premier League club with Wolves’ finances would pay that much in the current climate.
