Wolves’ Joao Gomes Transfer In The Line As Lyon Make Play For Midfielder

January 18, (THEWILL) – Lyon is making a last-minute attempt to sign 21-year-old Flamengo midfielder, Joao Gomes.
The young star is currently in England, having undergone a medical examination for a potential transfer to Wolverhampton Wanderers. However, it is understood that Flamengo has not yet approved the deal and is now in negotiations with Lyon.
Lyon have agreed to match any other offer for Gomes and are trying to negotiate personal terms, though Gomes’ current preference is to play in the English Premier League and he would need to be convinced to abandon his agreement with Wolves and decide instead for Les Gones. Gomes has already played 122 senior games in his professional career and has scored four goals during his time in Flamengo’s first team.
This transfer window, Julen Lopetegui has been busy adding to his new squad, particularly in midfield. Mario Lemina joined from Nice last week, while PSG’s Pablo Sarabia was unveiled as Wolves’ newest player prior to Tuesday’s FA Cup loss to Liverpool.
These new additions to midfield, appeared to have signalled some sides, like Liverpool, Newcastle, and Tottenham, to consider convincing Ruben Neves to leave Wolves but Lopetegui and the club are not interested in selling the Portugal international, whose contract runs out in 2024.
