Wolves have reached an agreement with Barcelona over signing Francisco Trincao on a loan deal until the end of the 2021/22 season.

Francisco Trincao

’s services on a loan contract that includes an option to buy him for £25m when the next season ends.

The Portugal international made a move to the Blaugrana last year with a £26.5m transfer fee and represented his country six times.

He played in 28 La Liga matches for the Catalans last season, finding the target three times.

"

We've watched him a lot, especially over the last couple of months, so he's been on our radar for quite a while,"

said Wolves technical director Scott Sellars.

"He's got loads of quality - signing for Barcelona from Braga shows what potential he's got. He's 21 and has played quite a lot of games in La Liga, so we think he's ready for the Premier League.

"He's a player who drifts past people and he has a great change of direction when he's moving with the ball. He has great speed over two or three yards, to change direction and get away from people, can score and create, and is an exciting player."

The 21-year-old will travel to the UK on Sunday but has to quarantine himself before he can join the squad.

Wolves will start their pre-season training on Monday and it is going to be the first time new boss Bruno Lage will meet the squad since replacing Nuno Espirito Santo.

"

We have a large Portuguese contingent, and they look after each other well, but are also integrated in the whole group,"

Sellars added.

"They're really hard-working, with a good mentality, so I'm sure he'll integrate well and settle in quickly.

"With the manager's Portuguese background, he knows him and speaks very highly of him, so he's a player we're very excited to be bringing to the club."
