Much of the Wolves fanbase don’t appear to be best pleased with the club’s latest decision as the transfer deadline rapidly approaches.

According to the Express and Star, Wolves have ended their pursuit of highly-rated Benfica centre-back Ruben Dias with both clubs reportedly far apart on their valuations of the player.

The 22-year-old has a £57m release clause at the Primeira Liga champions but the club are not prepared to fork out that amount on the player – Benfica do not necessarily have to sell either after claiming £113m from Atletico Madrid for forward Joao Felix.

Dias has transcended quite rapidly to European acclaim after cementing his name in both the Benfica and Portugal starting line-up – already at his young age

Last season, he featured 55 times in all competitions as Benfica won the Portuguese league and he also played every single minute of Portugal’s Nations League triumph – making him quite an ideal target this summer in the eyes of some Wolves supporters.

One fan blasted the club for having an awful transfer window, suggesting that manager Nuno Santo Espirito, Diogo Jota and Ruben Neves would all be off next summer whilst one labelled it a ‘pretty disappointing window.’

Others were rather worried about the squad incase injuries creeped in, especially with the extra number of games they are likely to play due to competing in the Europa League with one calling it a ‘dangerous game.’
