Vinagre joined Wolves on an initial loan in 2017 as an 18-year-old with the move being made permanent a year later.

He went on to make 43 appearances in gold and black before joining Olympiacos, Famalicao and Sporting Lisbon on loan before completing a full switch back to the Portuguese giants at the end of last season.

However, former Wolves sporting director Kevin Thelwell, now director of football at Goodison Park, has kept a close eye on the progress of the full-back and looks set to take him to Merseyside.

Vinagre posted on his personal Instagram account to Sporting, saying: “Thankyou, best of luck for this season.”
