According to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, Wolverhampton Wanderers have agreed to sign Hungarian right-back Bendeguz Bolla.
Bolla, who was a member of Hungary’s Euro 2020 squad this summer, is expected to join on a permanent basis subject to a medical.
Never having played club football outside of his native country, he will arrive at Compton Park as a relative unknown, although it is being reported that he will join Wolves’ sister club Grasshoppers in Switzerland on loan with immediate effect.

Since then, the 21-year-old spent two seasons on loan in the lower- eagues of Hungary, including a successful two-year spell at Zalaegerszeg.
A team famous for once defeating Manchester United in a Champions League qualifier in 2002, Bolla helped them achieve promotion back to the top tier and consolidate their status.
Upon returning to Fehervar last summer, Bolla started 24 games to help them reach the qualification rounds for the inaugural Europa Conference League.
The right-back was also a part of Fehervar’s quest to qualify for the Europa League campaign last year, featuring fully as they knocked out French side Stade de Reims before losing out to Standard Liege.
Although he did not play in any of Hungary’s Euro 2020 games, he was involved in friendlies versus Cyprus and the Republic of Ireland, keeping clean sheets in both. In the latter. he came up against former Wolves long-serving right back Matt Doherty.Embed from Getty Images
An attack minded full-back, Bolla is very fast which compliments his excellent dribbling and crossing abilities.
