Cape Town - Wolverhampton Wanderers are reported to be lining up a swoop for Manchester United defender Victor Lindelof at the end of the season.

The Sweden international has spent the last two seasons with United, but after failing to live up to his £31 million price tag, could be on the move at the end of the season.

United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is said to be in the hunt to sign two new central defenders and that could result in Lindelof moving on, with Wolves keeping a close eye on the situation.

Wolves could be looking at a potential Europa League campaign next season as they attempt to finish the season in seventh place in the Premier League, but even if they miss out, Nuno Espirito Santo is targeting quality additions.

The 24-year-old, who can play at right-back or in central defence, would certainly be that, and a switch to Molineux could be on the cards when the transfer window re-opens.
