Sheffield Wednesday are eyeing a move for Vitória Guimarães defender Frederico Venancio according to Yorkshire Live.
The Owls conceded 66 goals in their 2019/20 league campaign, and it’s clear to see that Garry Monk is targeting defenders heading into the summer transfer window.
Garry Monk’s side finished 16th in the Championship table last season, after a dismal run of results saw them tumble down the second-tier standings.
Venancio is a player that the club’s supporters will know well, with the 27-year-old having a loan spell with the Owls earlier in his career.

Now that would be a good signing. But there's other areas on the pitch that need addressing. Full backs, Wingers and Forwards.

He did well for us but that ship has sailed, he isn’t what we need right now

Would be a good signing on a free (IMO).

Please. Just please do this. Borner, iorfa, venancio back 3 next season is just too good to be left in my dreams

he developed quite well, wouldn't be a bad signing

Should've signed him at the end of his loan. He'd be a big improvement on what we have

He’s a decent player, and grew as the season went on. Would love to see him back

I would be quite happy with this. Was decent on the ball and got to grips with the Championship once he finally got game time

What a player, would definitely take him on a free
— Joe Marriott (@Joe_Marriott15) August 10, 2020
If he's available on a free get him in now

He was a great player, and would love to see him brought back to @swfc
