Wolverhampton Wanderers have reportedly made Moussa Marega a ‘priority signing’ to boost their attacking options.

The Mirror report that Wolves are at the front of the queue for the Porto star, who scored 21 goals last season.

Porto were tipped to the Primeira Liga title by Benfica and that has trigged a clause in Marega’s contract that allows him to leave for £30m this summer.

Premier League rivals Leicester City and West Ham are also interested, while Aston Villa have been linked too, but Wolves lead the chase after scouting Marega in his side’s 2-1 win over Sporting Lisbon last weekend.

Porto stand to make a considerable profit on the 28-year-old, who cost them just £3.5million from Maritimo three years ago.

Wolves will be competing on two front next season after qualifying for the Europa League and want to add to their forward ranks.

Nuno Espirito Santo is keen to sign competition for first choice pair Raul Jimenez and Diogo Jota having led Wolves to a seventh-place finish last term.

Marega is also said to be on Villa’s radar with plans in place at Villa Park to attract high quality players if the club wins promotion to the Premier League via the play-offs.

Wolves were keen on Villa loanee Tammy Abraham in January, whose return to Chelsea in July will leave Dean Smith searching for a new frontman too.
