Wolves are in talks with Barcelona over Portugal defender Nelson Semedo.
Following the selling of Portuguese striker Diego Jota’s move to Liverpool on Saturday, boss Nuno Espírito Santo said he wanted to sign a replacement for Matt Doherty. The Wolves boss told chairman Jeff Shi the identity of the player he wanted and Barcelona and Portugal right-back Nelson Semedo is the player he wants.
It is understood that the 26-year-old is the man in question and, with Barca boss Ronald Koeman wanting to generate funds to overhaul his squad, Wolves may be able to sign the player for around £30m. He would fill the right-back slot which former defender Doherty left to joined Tottenham at the end of August.
Nelson Semedo has so far played 124 times for Barcelona and won 13 Portugal caps, he was an unused substitute as Barcelona beat Elche 1-0 on Saturday.
