Mario Lemina could undergo a medical at Wolves this week, according to reports in France.
Foot Mercato are suggesting this evening that a deal is moving closer.
An agreement is very close between the two clubs according to their information.
They claim that final details need to be worked out, but things are on track and the player could actually now have his medical later in the week.
TalkSPORT are also claiming this evening that a deal is edging closer for around £10 million.
It would appear that Lemina is all set to become Julen Lopetegui’s next signing after Matheus Cunha.
The Brazilian’s deal was completed before the window officially opened, but things have been relatively quiet since then.
Lopetegui has reassured fans that deals will get done this month.
The 29-year-old star has been with Nice since the summer of 2021, joining from Southampton after he’d had a couple of loan spells at Fulham and Galatasaray.
He’s made 74 appearances in the Premier League previously, and has good experience to offer.
Wolves let a number of experienced players go last summer, and that has seemingly been one of the reasons the team has struggled in 2022/23.
Mario Lemina in by the end of the week would be nice for Wolves, as report claims medical could soon take place
Reports are really gathering pace about Lemina now, which suggests that a move could be very close.
That a medical could take place later this week is great news.
Hopefully, an agreement can be reached and he can fly over the England and get sorted as soon as possible.
Perhaps he could even be an option for Wolves for the game against West Ham United at the weekend. Although that might be pushing it a little.
This is definitely a positive move from the club, with Lemina an experienced and versatile player Lopetegui could really get a lot out of.
