Plenty of Wolves fans have had their say on Twitter over the reports that the potential Nelson Oliveira deal is not going to happen.

According to reports from Greek outlet Page News (via Sport Witness), the Portuguese forward will be staying put at AEK Athens, despite interest and a bid coming in from Wolves.

It is said that Nuno Espirito Santo’s side made a €4m offer fro the player, however, they refused to bump it up to his release fee at €6.5m. Despite the club having no obvious second choice to Raul Jimenez, they will not be going back in for the striker and may well be turning their interest elsewhere.

Would you have taken Nelson Oliveira?

No, he's simply not good enough

Yes please, we need a striker

Only if we can't find someone else

Some reports have suggested that the attacker is wanting a move back to England, however, he came out to Greek press in the week and reaffirmed how committed he was to the club.

Fan account @TalkingWolves tweeted about the news, to which many fans responded weighing in with their opinions.

The general response from the fanbase was a pretty positive one, with many seemingly thinking he’s not up to the standards of the squad.

Here are some of the replies below…

With the club now knocking at the door of Europe once more in the league – currently seventh in the division – they could really do with a replacement for Raul Jimenez.

The sale of Patrick Cutrone means the obvious replacement would have to be either Diogo Jota centrally or bring up Leonardo Campana from the U23s.
