Cristiano Ronaldo has been urged to join Wolves should he make a return to the Premier League.
The 35-year-old has been linked with a Juventus exit this summer and would not be short of suitors.
The five-time Ballon d’Or winner is still prolific despite his age having notched six times in four Serie A outings this term.
And Deeney reckons Ronaldo could be the final part of the jigsaw for a Wolves side who have taken massive strides forward in recent years.

“I think I was more looking at a club like Wolves with the Portugal connection,” Deeney said on TalkSport. “That would probably work.
“Whoever is getting him is getting an unbelievable talent. This season I think six in four he has already got in Serie A. You are not going to get the same Ronaldo you had at Manchester United. I think that’s always going to be the comparison.
“You look at Gareth Bale, for example, he has gone back to Tottenham. You are comparing him already to the one that left to go to Madrid.
“You are still going to get goals from Ronaldo and you are still going to get goals from Bale – that’s going to be the forefront of everyone’s mind is he to that level?
“If he is available, I would be very surprised if there wasn’t a top ten club trying to sign him in the Premier League.
“I like Wolves. It is the odd one out [compared to the clubs Ronaldo has played at]. If he went to America and went to LA Galaxy. We would go ‘oh, that’s a bit strange’.
“I think Wolves are creating something there with the players that they have where they will push for the top six in the next few years.
“Then, of course, as I said the Portugal connection and there are so many positives. If you want to go to the next level then that’s the player you need to go for.”
