Wolves have agreed a £15m deal for Flamengo’s Brazilian midfielder Joao Gomes.

The club are also close to signing Paris Saint-Germain winger Pablo Sarabia, who is set to join for around £4million plus fringe benefits at the weekend.
Gomes has been a regular for the Brazil team since his debut in October 2020 and has already won several awards at club level, including the Copa Libertadores.
The 21-year-old is likely to play at the Molineux in the near future, although he expressed his desire to play for Liverpool back in September.

gomes ESPN said: “Liverpool is a team I would play for. I have the greatest desire to play.”
“Playing in the Champions League is my biggest dream in football.”
Liverpool have not pursued a move despite their struggles in midfield – unlike Newcastle, who have kept their eye on the midfielder.
However, the Magpies, third in the table, decided against a move for Gomes.

A move to Wolves for Sarabia would see the 30-year-old midfielder back working with his former manager Julen Lopetegui.
Lopetegui guided Sarabia to the 2011 European Under-19 Championship and named the midfielder his captain for the tournament.
The couple’s paths crossed again in Seville in 2019. They ended up spending a month together before Sarabia joined Paris Saint-Germain.

Sarabia is struggling to cement his place in PSG’s starting XI – having played just 98 games since joining in 2019.
However, last year he blossomed on loan at Sporting Lisbon. He scored 21 goals in 45 games for the Portuguese team.
The Spain international was also selected for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar but it was a tournament to forget.
He came on as a substitute in the Round of 16 loss to Morocco and was denied during the epic penalty shoot-out.
