Nuno Espírito Santo has been impressed by his performances this season and could make a move this summer.
The Argentina international is thought to perfectly fit the profile of winger Santo wants to target in the summer transfer window.
There is no doubt that Ocampos will take Wolverhampton’s attack to a different level.
According to the report, “Wolves are watching Sevilla attacker Lucas Ocampos. Ocampos, 26, has previously been linked with big clubs such as Real Madrid, Liverpool and Manchester United. However, the winger may yet be on the move to Wolves, reports Football Insider, which state they’re showing concrete interest in Ocampos. Wolves are expected to step up the hunt this summer as they want to improve their attacking options. However, Ocampos has three years left on his contract with Sevilla.”
