Recent results have been poor, and it seems Wolves are now ready to act in the transfer market, despite early indiciations suggesting there would be no activity.

Manager Nuno Espirito Santo had given indications that he would be relying on his current crop when he spoke about solutions within.

Patrick Cutrone was recalled from his loan to Fiorentina to provide cover, but it seems there could now be extra support in the form of Brazilian striker Jose.

Jose has been with Sociedad since 2016 and has clocked up 169 appearances, scoring 69 goals and making 15 assists.

Sociedad supposedly already have a replacement for Jose lined up in Sevilla striker Carlos Fernandez.

An exciting move

News of a deal reportedly being agreed for Jose certainly comes out of the blue, but Wolves fans should be excited.

The star has plenty of experience at the age of 29, and has a somewhat similar style to that of Jimenez.

He holds the ball up well and has good aerial prowess, and hopefully he’ll be able to hit the ground running at Molineux.
