Wolves are looking to sign a permanent deal for Diogo Jota in January, according to the Express and Star.
The 20-year-old is currently plying his trade on a season-long loan at Wolves from Atletico Madrid and has certainly hit the ground running.
The newspaper claims that the Championship side have the opportunity to sign the attacker at the end of the season when his loan expires, but now want to try and complete a January move for him when the transfer window re-opens.
It is believed that Nuno Espirito Santo’s side are lining up a “sizeable eight-figure” offer for the rising star, but that it won’t surpass the £15million paid for Ruben Neves.
Wolves are eyeing a £10million-plus deal for in-form Jota after his sensational start at Molineuz, where ha has bagged six goals in just 12 games.
What’s good in this for Wolves?
Jota has become a key player already for Wolves this season and has looked brilliant during his first taste of English football.
The Portugal Under-21 international has the ability to get fans off their seat and usually operates on the left-wing.
Jota has already managed to scored six goals and looks like he could develop into a fantastic player. He impressed last season during a loan spell during with Porto and is now even playing better in England.
It would be an incredible deal if they secured the playmaker on a permanent contract and he could be the difference in helping them achieve automatic promotion.
How likely is this going to happen?
Diogo Jota has not got a look in at Atletico in the past seasons and look set to leave the Spanish capita in the near future.
Wolves will have the chance to snap up the wide man at the end of the season, but it’s no surprise to see they want to secure a January deal after his brilliant start to the season.
Jota could receive attention from several Premier League clubs if he continues his brilliant form and the Midlands club are looking to tie down his future.
It is quite likely Wolves will be able to complete an early deal for Jota and it would be another sign of their financial backing.
