Supposedly the club have an option to buy the 29-year-old permanently.

Sky Sports are also reporting that Wolves have agreed to sign the striker on loan, with an option to buy in the summer of 2021.

The news comes out of the blue, as there was no indication that Wolves were interested in Jose until yesterday.

However, Nuno has been looking for a striker due to the head injury suffered by star man Raul Jimenez.

The Wolves boss suggested last month that he wanted to bring in a striker in the January transfer window, as quoted in The Express & Star.

Wolves also recently took the decision to bring back Patrick Cutrone from his loan spell with Fiorentina, although there is speculation that he could go back out again.

Wolves’ recent form has not been great, and the hope would be that Jose hits the ground running quickly if he does join.

Supposedly, Sociedad already have a replacement lined up for the South American in Carlos Fernandez of Sevilla.

 

On social media, some Wolves fans have been reacting to the surprise report.
