Premier League club Wolverhampton Wanderers are plotting a move for highly rated Benfica defender Ruben Dias this summer according to the latest reports emanating from the British media.
Wolves want to sign Ruben Dias between now and the rest of the Premier League transfer window which ends on August 8.
Wolves will have to fend off a lot of big European clubs including Manchester United if they want to sign their defensive transfer target.
Manchester United, Arsenal and Real Madrid have all been linked with a move for the Portuguese centre back during this summer’s transfer window.
The 22-year-old was an ever-present for Benfica as they reclaimed the Portuguese Super League title from rivals FC Porto on the last day of the season.
Ruben Dias was also part of the Benfica team that reached the Europa League quarterfinals before they were eliminated by German Bundesliga side Eintracht Frankfurt.
He fits the model at Wolves who have mainly signed young players since manager Nuno Espirito Santo was appointed three years ago.
The former Valencia manager has been able to transform the fortunes of Wolves to a Premier League club in a short space of time.
Jorge Mendes is no stranger to Wolves and the Portuguese is the agent of Ruben Dias.
The Benfica defender will definitely swell the Portuguese contingent at Wolves if he signs for them this summer.
