Wolves are interested in re-signing defender Ruben Vinagre on loan from French giants Monaco, according to a report.

The Express and Star claims that Nuno Espirito Santo’s side are keen to wrap up a deal for the 19-year-old this summer and would prefer to to sub-loan him for part of the 2018/19 campaign.

He is an attack-minded left-back that spent last season on loan at Molineux and they would like a second look at him before pursuing a permanent deal.

Football Insider verdict:

Vinagre is a left-sided flyer that has bag of potential and he is somebody that Wolves should try snap up on a full-time basis. The Portuguese full-back will have learned a lot from his first season in English football, despite the fact he was stuck behind Barry Douglas at left-back in the battle for a starting XI position. He still managed 13 senior appearances across all competitions and supporters were certainly encouraged by what they saw. Vinagre is a technically gifted teenager that has the traits of a modern day full-back in the sense he can offer a lot both offensively and defensively. Manager Nuno will need some proper back-up for Douglas ahead of the campaign in the Premier League and picking up Vinagre looks a no-brainer at this point. There is certainly a path for him to develop in the coming years at Wolves and has the potential to be a star in the making.

In other Wolves transfer news, they are in the hunt to sign a £1.7million-a-year playmaker.
