Wolves to enter talks with former Sevilla coach Julen Lopetegui

Wolves are set to enter talks with former Sevilla coach Julen Lopetegui.

Lopetegui, 56, accepted the manager role at Wolves in 2016 - but was tempted away to take charge of the Spanish national team.

Six years on, the Midlands club need a new manager after firing Bruno Lage last weekend, and Lopetegui is now available after being dismissed by Sevilla on Wednesday night.

The Athletic reports Wolves are now set to hold formal talks with Lopetegui and his agent Jorge Mendes, as part of a thorough recruiting process for Lage's replacement.

During his time at Sevilla, the club finished in the top four in the league three times in a row, and won the 2020 Europa League.
