Jorge Mendes ‘contacts’ two clubs after failed Wolves transfer – reports
Wolverhampton Wanderers were heavily linked with Lazio defender Wallace during the transfer window.
The 24-year-old was touted with a switch to Molineux throughout the summer and it was even suggested that a deal was due to be completed in the final week ahead of the deadline.
Wallace is a client of super-agent Jorge Mendes, who continues to help Wolves with transfer dealings, and speculation was turned up a notch after the Brazilian left Lazio’s training camp early just days before the window closed.
No deal was forthcoming, though, and Wallace stayed put, remaining with the Serie A side.

However, he is yet to make a competitive appearance this season and sources in Italy state that Mendes is working hard to find the centre-back a move.
A return to Monaco would hardly be a surprising move for Wallace, nor would signing for Valenica – with Mendes wielding influence at both clubs. The window remains open for the majority of European sides until September 2.
Wolves landed defender Jesus Vallejo in the summer, Patrick Cutrone, and Portuguese pair Pedro Neto and Bruno Jordao.
