Amorim picked up the manager of the season award last year and has also guided Sporting to one league championship and three domestic cup successes in just over two seasons.

At just 37-years-old, the former Portuguese international is regarded as one of the brightest young managers in Europe.

Sevilla boss Julen Lopetegui is currently second favourite at 4/1.

It is believed the former Spain and Real Madrid boss in on the verge of losing his job at the La Liga club and has been heavily linked with the Molineux job in the past.

Olympiacos Pedro Martins (5/1) is third favourite having won the Super League in Greece three years running as well as success in the Champions League.

The 52-year-old former Portugese international will know the majority of the Wolves squad very well indeed and would be a popular choice.

Other prominent names include former Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas (8/1), Lille manager Paolo Fonseca (10/1) and former Burnley boss Sean Dyce (10/1).
