Wolves’ impressive 2018/19 season

Given the impressive start Wolves have made to the 2018/19 season, Felix could well be persuaded to join them.

Wolves currently sit 7th in the Premier League after 25 games with a game in hand on 8th place Watford.

They have won 11, drawn five and lost nine in the league, which is a solid record considering they were only promoted last season.

Wolves also have a number of promising young Portuguese players such as Ruben Neves and Diogo Jota who could well persuade Felix to join them.

Nuno Santo’s sides next game sees them take on 17th place Newcastle on Monday evening.
