Wolves in talks with La Liga club for £1m-rated attacker - report
By Danny Wright
Wolves are in talks with Eibar over a deal for Bebe, according to a report.
The Daily Mail claims that the former Manchester United attacker could move to Molineux in a deal worth £1million.
Bebe failed to impress during his time at Old Trafford and is widely regarded as a flop after a £7.4million move there in 2010.
However he has since been in good form for La Liga club Eibar this season and has helped them achieve a respectable tenth place finish, above Valencia.
The 26-year-old scored five goals and supplied three assists in 26 appearances across all competitions this term, which isn’t bad considering he started just eight league fixtures.

Bebe worked alongside newly-appointed Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo during his days at Rio Ave in Portugal.
The Portuguese wide man, who usually plays on the left wing, was snapped up by Santo on a loan deal from Man United in 2013 and made 18 appearances for the club, scoring twice.
His career has also seen him play for Estrela, Vitoria de Guimaraes, Benfica and Rayo Vallecano.
Bebe also earned six caps for the Portugual Under-21 side and scored one goal.
Football Insider Verdict
It seems like Wolves are going to be doing most of their transfer work looking at targets from Portugual or players of Portuguese nationality. Super-agent Jorge Mendes has a huge grip on proceedings at Molineux and it’s also understandable that Nuno Espirito Santo might want to use his funds to snap up some players he has previously enjoyed working with. However Bebe has already shown that he was a bit of a flop in England, despite his good season as a rotation player at Eibar. The one thing he needs to bring to his game is an end product and he could struggle to do that in what is a very tough league in the Championship. One positive is that for £1million, there’s not a lot of risk involved and it could be the funds that would have been used on signing Andreas Weimann on a permanent deal.
