The Examiner report that the Terriers are tracking the ten goal front man as a potential strike partner for Karlan Grant. 

Town boss Jan Siewert is interested in the 25-year-old Portuguese striker, with Hull City’s Fraizer Campbell and Brentford’s Neal Maupay also identified as potential options. 

Rumours earlier this month suggested that Wednesday could slap an £8million price tag on Joao, while Huddersfield have also been linked with Owls goalkeeper Keiren Westwood who could be a free agent at the end of the season if he is not offered a new contract.

The relegated Premier League club are expected to have a major squad overhaul as they prepare for life back in the Championship, while it's also expected to be a summer of transition and personnel changes at Hillsborough under Steve Bruce.
