Wolverhampton Wanderers to sign Benfica winger Rafa Silva?

Wolverhampton Wanderers are reportedly ready to sign Benfica winger Rafa Silva - dubbed the "Portuguese Hazard" - during the January transfer window.

Benfica winger Rafa Silva has reportedly emerged as a January target for Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Since Fosun International bought the West Midlands outfit in the summer of 2016, Wolves have continually been linked with players from the Portuguese giants, with Joao Carvalho said to be on the club's radar for the start of 2018.

However, it appears that Nuno Espirito Santo has his eyes on more talent from Aguias, with Record claiming that Silva could move to Molineux in January.

The 24-year-old - dubbed the "Portuguese Hazard" - has made just five appearances for Benfica this season, although he did feature against CSKA Moscow in the Champions League earlier in the campaign.

The playmaker has scored a total of two goals from 28 appearances in all competitions since costing Benfica a fee of €16.4m when they signed him from Braga in 2016.

Six Portuguese players already feature in Wolves' first-team squad.

Sunday's key events


GOLF
· The men's golf reaches its conclusion, with plenty of players still in medal contention. Home favourite Hideki Matsuyama is one shot off Xander Schauffele's lead, while Great Britain's Paul Casey is another shot further back and Tommy Fleetwood is also in the mix (11.30pm-8am)

CYCLING - BMX
· Great Britain have already made history in the BMX events in Tokyo, something Charlotte Worthington and Declan Brooks will be looking to add to in the women's (2.10am) and men's (3.10am) freestyle finals

SWIMMING
· The final day of swimming action begins with the men's 50m freestyle final. Ben Proud could add to a medal-laden Games in the pool for Team GB so far, although he is up against USA's Caeleb Dressel, who is going for his fourth gold in Tokyo (2.30am)
· From sprint to endurance, Great Britain's second medal hope of the day comes through Daniel Jervis in the men's 1500m freestyle final (2.44am)
· Team GB will again be among the heavy favourites for gold in the last swimming event of the Games - the men's 4x100m medley relay final - having won the mixed event in a world record time on Saturday (3.36am)

BOXING
· Already guaranteed at least a bronze, Pat McCormack takes part in the men's welterweight semi-final against Ireland's Aidan Walsh with a spot in the gold medal final at stake (4.03am)
· Ben Whittaker is also in the semi-finals of the men's light heavyweight and will be looking to continue Team GB's success in the ring (4.51am)

TENNIS
· There will be a surprise on the top of the men's tennis podium after Novak Djokovic missed out on a medal altogether. Alexander Zverev takes on Karen Khachanov in the second match on Centre Court at the Ariake Tennis Park (7am-2pm)

SAILING
· Alison Young will be going for gold in the women's laser radial medal race (7.33am)

ARTISTIC GYMNASTICS
· Team GB's Max Whitlock will look to defend his 2016 Olympic title in the men's pommel horse final (10.41am)

ATHLETICS
· The men's high jump final includes GB's Tom Gale, although his chances of a medal look bleak (11.10am)
· So often the blue-riband event of the Olympics, the men's 100m final takes place as the world's fastest bid to be crowned Usain Bolt's successor. Three Brits have made it into the semi-finals (11.15am-11.32am), and the final looks wide open after an underwhelming display by favourite Trayvon Bromell on Saturday (1.50pm)

HOCKEY
· Great Britain face India in the men's quarter-final (1pm)
