Moutinho was the star man as Nuno Espirito Santo's side finished seventh in the Premier League and reached the FA Cup semi-finals the campaign just gone, but the Portuguese pass-master is still striving for more.

The 32-year-old claimed Euro 2016 with Portugal and the Europa League with Porto in 2011, and he wants to win something with Wolves.

"I think we need to think bigger, to dream bigger," said Moutinho.

"That’s what we want, the club wants to be better. That’s what I want, all my team-mates want, to be better and do all we can to win something.

"This year was very good, but we try to better next year.”

Moutinho also has a Ligue 1 winners medal from his time with Monaco, who Wolves signed him from last summer for £5million – a bargain in the eyes of the vast majority given the state of the transfer market.

On why he came to Molineux, he added: "I was told it was a big project when they contacted me, and I accepted because it’s a club who wants to be better and bigger.

"I like this challenge, to help a club to be better and that’s what I came here to do, to help the team, to help the club, do what I can to make this club better.”
