Pele: 'I'm likely to join Wolves'

Rio Ave midfielder Pele suggests that he is likely to sign for Wolverhampton Wanderers during the summer transfer window.

Rio Ave midfielder Pele has suggested that he is ready to accept an offer to play for Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Last month, it was reported that the newly-promoted Premier League side were prepared to spend £9m to complete the signing of the 26-year-old.

Pele has now confirmed that he will assess approaches for his signature this week, admitting that a switch to Molineux is likely to be concluded.

Addressing the Wolves rumours, the Guinea-Bissau international told A Bola: "Yes, because I have received approaches and proposals from several clubs.

"I'm going to analyse the proposals with my family and choose the one that I want the most. I'm going to travel for the week, maybe it's the most likely outcome, but I do not close doors yet. As a child I wanted to play in the Premier League.

"Plus my whole family lives in London and going for it would be the icing on the cake. I only see them in holiday periods. It would be a unique opportunity to be near them."

Pele has scored seven goals from 31 league appearances for his Portuguese club during the current campaign.
