Wolves key man emerged as surprise transfer target for Man Utd

Wolverhampton Wanderers forward Diogo Jota has hit his stride in recent weeks.

The 23-year-old forward has notched six goals in his last four games and has found back of the net 15 times across all competitions this campaign attracting interest from hosts of the teams from Europe.

The Portuguese grabbed the headlines with a devastating hat-trick against Espanyol in the Europe League game last month and he’s taken that form into English top-tier.

Jota’s improved form has led to speculation surrounding his long-term future Nuno Espasito’s side with Premier League rivals Man United – who could yet finish beneath Wolves – linked with a switch this summer.

And now, according to reports from Italy Napoli have joined Man Utd in the ract to secure the services of Portuguese forward.

TMW reports that Napoli are keen on to sign Jota and AC Milan midfielder Hakan Calhanoglu during the summer transfer window.

Jota, who joined Premier League outfits from Atletico Madrid for £12million back in 2018, has played 119 games since arriving at Molineux and established himself as one of the best players in the English top-tier.
