Wolves striker Rafa Mir is all set to join La Liga champions Atletico Madrid.

Spanish outlet Marca claim the frontman will sign a four-year deal to join Diego Simeone’s side.

Respected journalist Fabrizio Romano has tweeted that Mir has agreed personal terms with Atleti.

Mir spent last season on loan in Spain with Huesca, scoring 16 league goals despite the club’s eventual relegation.

That has understandably caught the eye of some of the leading lights in Spain.

And it looks like Mir is all set to make a move right to the top of the league, linking up with the likes of Luis Suarez.

The report claims the transfer fee will be in the region of 15 million euros (£12.7 million)


The Athletic claimed earlier this week that Mir was one of the players Wolves were relying on selling to fund more incomings before the end of the transfer window.

At that price, he could well be the most lucrative player to exit the club this summer.

Owen Otasowie is apparently set to fetch between £5 and £6 million. So he and Mir should raise close to £20 million, with Romain Saiss and Patrick Cutrone possible departees too.

That should swell Wolves coifers, but Bruno Lage has said he wants three or four more players before the end of the window.

Selling Mir might see Wolves start to make moves using that cash. But before that, the Spaniard will take on Brazil in the Olympic final this afternoon, looking to help his country secure a gold medal.
