Wolves has entered into talks with Bruno Lage about becoming their new manager.
The Mail claim that the former Benfica boss has already been interviewed for the vacant role at Molineux following Nuno Espirito Santo’s shock departure.
Lage, who has previously had spells as assistant manager at Swansea and Sheffield Wednesday, is thought to have turned down numerous opportunities since departing Lisbon last summer.
The 45-year-old led the Portuguese giants to the league title in 2019 before departing a year later.
The Telegraph further claim Lage is widely expected to take over the hotseat in the next few weeks, although Wolves sources insist a deal is not yet done.

Interestingly, the Portuguese is a client of super agent Jorge Mendes, who also represents ex-boss Nuno and a number of other Wolves players.
Wolves are understood to be assessing a number of other options, but their first-choice candidate is believed to be Lage.
