Wolves are keeping close tabs on Aves striker Alexandre Guedes.

The Portuguese U20 international was a big reason why Aves were promoted to the Primeria Liga last season.

Wolves manager Nuno Espirito Santo knows all about the 23-year-old as he looks to bolster his attacking options.

Portsmouth are eyeing up a move for former Wolves midfielder James Henry.

Henry was released by Wolves at the end of last season and new boss Kenny Jackett is confident of landing the 28-year-old.

Having played under Jackett at Molineux and Millwall, the experienced Henry is likely to make the move to Fratton Park in the next two weeks.

West Brom


Tony Pulis has identified Manchester United's Chris Smalling as his top summer transfer target as he looks to bolster his options in defence.

The Albion manager currently has only four senior defenders to choose from after Jonas Olsson's departure earlier this year.

Leicester are reportedly set to make a fresh bid for Baggies defender Jonny Evans after having an initial £10m offer rejected.

Boss Craig Shakespeare remains interested in a deal for Evans, who is a key man at the Hawthorns making 30 Premier League appearances last term.


Aston Villa

Jordan Amavi looks set to leave Aston Villa this summer with West Brom set to make a move for the left-back.

The Baggies cooled their interest in Leeds left-back Charlie Taylor with Amavi offering an attacking alternative.

Steve Bruce's men rejected a rumoured £25m bid for the 23-year-old ast December, but could now sell for a cut price £7m


Walsall are reportedly one of three clubs interested in signing Coventry City centre-back Jordan Turnbull.

The Saddlers want to sign the 22-year-old defender on a free transfer - thanks to a relegation clause in the player's contract.

But Jon Whitney will have to fight off competition from Charlton and Bradford City.
