Wolves are reportedly keen on Manchester United target David Carmo as well as his Braga teammate Al Musrati in double transfer swoop.

Wolves have recruited heavily from Portugal over the past few seasons. The likes of Ruben Neves, Fabio Silva and Raul Jimenez were all signed from there.

Indeed, a lot of the signings they have made from Portugal have been successful. Neves and Jimenez, particularly, have been two of the Molineux outfit’s most important players since arriving.

However, it appears that they could be losing one of those stars soon. Neves has been linked with Barcelona, Arsenal and Manchester United for months.

Should he move on, Wolves will be losing possibly their most crucial asset of the last few seasons. There are likely to be at least a couple more outgoings at Molineux this summer.

Both Joao Moutinho and Romain Saiss are out of contract soon. In fact, the latter has already announced he will be leaving the club after six years.

Bruno Lage’s side will want to replace those players, and Portugal looks to be where they will hunt for those replacements. Wolves have been linked with the signings of a couple of Braga stars of late.

Record reports that defensive-midfielder Al Musrati is a target of theirs. O Jogo also reports that his teammate, Carmo, is being targeted by Wolves.

Indeed, those potential signings will fill the positions of the outgoings.

Al Musrati plays in the midfield, and Carmo in the defence, so at least Wolves will not struggle for depth.

Al Musrati has big shoes to fill, should he fill Neves’ position. However, he has contributed to 11 goals in all competitions from defensive-midfield in the last couple of seasons, so it seems he could have a similar impact.

What’s more, his role may be shared with Joao Palhinha, who is reportedly close to making the move to Wolves. As such, the responsibilities of performing in the midfield may be split between the pair of them.

Carmo only played 20 games in the recent season, with an injury keeping him out for a long period. However, he has been linked with a number of Premier League sides, and has reportedly had talks with Man Utd.

As such, both players appear as if they could add something to the Wolves side, which will be a bonus, given they will be losing some talent.

However, the United interest in Carmo could prove a tough challenge for Lage’s side to compete with.
