TEAMtalk understands Fulham have moved into pole position to land Wolves forward Ivan Cavaleiro.

Wolves are ready to sell the Portuguese international who joined them in the summer of 2016 from Monaco for a then club-record £7million.

Cavaleiro played a big part in Wolves promotion with nine goals and 12 assists, but Wolves are ready to move him on in order to make room for other signings.

Wolves are understood to have recently turned down a £12million bid for Cavaleiro from Fulham and Huddersfield.

Now though we can reveal Fulham are ready to go to £16million to get their man.

Last month we reported that Huddersfield we closing in on Cavaleiro with Wolves’ Chinese owners apparently having “ambitious plans” and are ready to sell him to fund new arrivals.

Cavaleiro then distanced himself from the report when he posted a pictured of himself in action for Wolves on social media with the message: “Looking forward to start the season with my club #wolvesaywe.”
