Wolves are set to complete the signing of Joao Gomes, with the player flying to England this evening.
Wanderers recently reached an agreement with Brazilian club Flamengo for his transfer.
The club will pay around £15 million to sign the South American.
He’ll undergo a medical, and it is expected an official announcement will arrive from the club in just a matter of days.
Wolves moving for Gomes has come completely out of the blue.
MORE WOLVES STORIES
Word of the club moving for the player only came late on Thursday night. It was Brazilian journalist Vene Casagrande who broke the story.
It has moved very quickly, and now Fabrizio Romano has reported that the starlet is flying to England tonight.
He adds ‘here we go, it’s confirmed’, indicating that Wolves have pretty much got the deal in the bag.
Romano also has a line on Pablo Sarabia, whom he says will complete his move to Molineux from Paris Saint-Germain this week.
Gomes will be coming in to further widen Julen Lopetegui’s pool of midfield options.
The club completed a deal for Mario Lemina in the last couple of days.
They managed to get that done and register him in time for the game against West Ham United, and he was given the last 20 minutes by Lopetegui.
Joao Gomes and Mario Lemina signings give Wolves a bit more bite, with Brazilian flying to England tonight
Wolves’ January is shaping up very incely indeed.
Lemina’s cameo yesterday was encouraging. And now we have the talented Gomes set to join and become another midfield option for Lopetegui.
These are two great additions.
Lemina is a proven player in the Premier League. But Gomes has huge potential and has already racked up a lot of appearances for Flamengo.
Both players will bring a bite of bite to the midfield, which is good as most of the current options are more technical than physical.
