Wolves fans react as club reportedly close in on Nelson Semedo

According to The Guardian, the right-back is Molineux-bound, with the player set to come to the Black Country in the coming days to finalise a transfer.

Apparently a deal will set the club back around £35 million, and everything seems in place for Semedo to become Nuno Espirito Santo’s sixth signing of the window.

Semedo joined Barcelona in the summer of 2017 from Benfica and has made 124 appearances for the club to date.

He’s scored two goals and made 11 assists, suggesting a creative spark that Wolves will need after losing Matt Doherty.

The 26-year-old, who is part of the Gestifute agency headed by Jorge Mendes, also has 14 caps for Portugal.
