20 goals, 10 assists – Wolves signing this season’s highest scoring midfielder in the summer would be a massive statement

Wolves Opinion: Nuno Santo wants Bruno Fernandes – good choice?

According to a report from O Jogo, Chelsea and Atletico Madrid are interested in Sporting CP star Bruno Fernandes, who is the highest scoring midfielder in Europe this season.

The 24-year-old Portuguese has been in scintillating form for Sporting this season, notching up 20 goals in 34 appearances in all competitions and providing 10 assists. He is already turning heads across Europe and with still plenty of time left for the season to end, Bruno Fernandes can go on and bag 30 goals in the 2018/19 campaign.

It appears as if there’s going to be a scramble for the Portuguese playmaker’s signature in the summer transfer window. That said, Wolves should join the likes of Chelsea and Atletico Madrid for the Sporting CP star’s signature.

Bruno Fernandes

Wolves have performed very well in the Premier League after winning the Championship title last season under Nuno Espirito Santo. After winning promotion to the Premier League, the Midlands outfit did show their ambition by recruiting a lot of quality players in summer, backing Nuno to build a squad capable of staying in the top-flight for many years to come.

And the Portuguese manager has exactly done that, with Wolves now fighting for a place in Europe. A place in the Europa League next season would be massive for Wolves given the fact that it’ll help them in attracting top talents from across the globe.

With Wolves possessing the potential to qualify for the Europa League, Nuno must make a statement of intent by signing Bruno Fernandes in the summer.

A technically gifted and a tactically versatile midfielder, Bruno is an expert passer of the ball, has silky dribbling skills and can pick the right pass in the attacking third. He is a very good reader of the game and knows to get into promising positions to score goals and create chances for his teammates.

Bruno Fernandes

The Portugal international operates with flair and is a composed finisher in front of goal, as evident from his 20 goals and 10 assists across all competitions this season. Furthermore, Bruno never compromises on his defensive duties and thanks to an extra dimension in his game, he would be able to potentially form a fantastic partnership in the midfield with Ruben Neves and Joao Moutinho.
