According to Record, Benfica central defender Ruben Dias will only depart the club this summer if his release clause of €66m (£59m) is triggered, which has left many fans over at Molineux desperate to see the Wolves hierarchy splash out on the Portuguese star.

Dias only made his Benfica senior debut two years ago when he started in their 2-1 defeat to Boavista in September 2017 and has gone on to make 85 appearances for the Primeira Liga champions. In the space of just five years he has risen from the Portugal Under-16 squad to become a regular for the senior side where he won the UEFA Nations League earlier this summer.

Many of the Wolves fanbase flocked to Twitter to share their thoughts on the latest update – with many fans begging the club to sign the 22-year-old. One supporter questioned how serious the club are about adding quality to the squad which was echoed by another fan who said if they can bid £40m for other targets then an extra £20m must surely be considered for a player of this quality.

Others even called on Jorge Mendes to help them out, hinting that their “uncle” could possibly sweeten a deal. Amongst all the pleas to sign Dias, one member of the Molineux crowd wasn’t best pleased with the club having to rely on Ryan Bennett in the heart of defence this season.

Here’s the best selection of tweets from some of the Wolves support:
