Wolves Opinion: Why Nuno should go all out to sign Gedson Fernandes?

According to a report from A Bola, Wolves are interested in signing Benfica starlet Gedson Fernandes this summer. Read the article to know more about Gedson Fernandes’ Playing Style and how he will fit in at Wolves.

Gedson Fernandes, 20, is one of the rising stars of Portuguese football, having made his breakthrough in the Benfica first-team this season. He has already made 39 appearances across all competitions, scoring three goals and assisting five more times.

The young Portuguese extended his contract with Benfica last year until 2023 that set his release clause at £102 million. But the report claims Wolves, who want to make Gedson Fernandes their new record signing, have to pay just £35 million and not the player’s termination clause.

Wolves spent a lot of money last summer to reshape their squad after winning promotion to the Premier League. The Midlands outfit showed a lot of ambition in the transfer market, signing players like Adama Traore, Joao Moutinho, Rui Patricio as well as Raul Jimenez, Jonny Otto and Leander Dendoncker on loan.

Nuno Espirito Santo has got the best out of almost every player and one of them is Ruben Neves. Neves has been a revelation in the Premier League, quickly adapting to the demands of the top-flight after starring in the club’s Championship winning campaign.

And the Portuguese midfielder’s performances haven’t gone unnoticed, with Manchester United already plotting a summer swoop.

It would be tough to hold onto Neves if a club like Manchester United come calling and hence, Nuno should plan his potential replacements from now on. Gedson Fernandes ticks all the boxes and Wolves must surely make a move for him this summer.

Gedson Fernandes’ Playing Style

Gedson is a player who is really making a name for himself at Benfica despite his tender age. He has starred in the Benfica midfield, impressing with his tigerish attitude. He is a box-to-box midfielder who can also play in an advanced role and thrive. The 20-year-old is a clean tackler, a fantastic ball winner and a classy operator of the ball.

The two-cap Portugal international can also pick the right pass, whilst excelling at the same time with his positioning sense and game reading abilities.

Blessed with technical qualities, Gedson has the stamina to run up and down the pitch to contribute to both defence and attack. Furthermore, he has the penchant for playing defence-splitting passes to set up his teammates and is a composed finisher in front of goal as well.


Gedson would undoubtedly bolster Wolves’ options in midfield. He could potentially become the replacement for Neves if the 22-year-old leaves Molineux in the summer.
