Wolves close to signing Barcelona fullback Nelson Semedo

Wolves are close to signing Barcelona fullback Nelson Semedo.

Semedo is set to join Wolves in a €35 million transfer.

Semedo is not in the plans of new coach Ronald Koeman and did not feature in the Gamper Trophy game at Camp Nou on Saturday.

His sale will bring in important funds for Barcelona, with the club needing to raise money before new players can be brought in this window, says the London Evening Standard.

That could include a new right-back as well, with only Sergi Roberto left to occupy that position once Semedo leaves, after Moussa Wague was loaned to Greek side PAOK on Monday.
