    The Midlands outfit have already brought in Brazilian forward Matheus Cunha from Atletico Madrid on an initial loan deal.

    And Wolves are now closing in on making three further signings – the first of which being ex-Southampton midfielder Mario Lemina.

    The 29-year-old, who also enjoyed a loan spell at Fulham in the 2020/21 season, has impressed at Nice since joining in 2021.

    A fee of around £9million has been agreed with the Ligue 1 side, with the player to undergo a medical at Wolves on Friday.

    talkSPORT also understands that Flamengo starlet Joao Gomes is in advanced talks with Wolves.

    The 21-year-old midfielder has scored four goals in 122 games for the Brazilian side – helping the club win the Copa Libertadores and top-flight title.

    And Wolves are also in discussions with Paris Saint-Germain for right winger Pablo Sarabia.

    The 30-year-old’s switch to England from Parc des Princes is believed to be ‘all but done’.

    Wolves expect to announce his move next week, though it remains to be seen whether it is a permanent transfer, or a loan with an obligation to buy.

    Sarabia, who is yet to register a goal contribution from his 19 outings this term, is tied down at PSG until 2024.

    West Ham striker Michail Antonio is also on Wolves’ radar ahead of a possible move.

    But as of yet they are yet to turn their interest into a formal offer for the 32-year-old.

    Antonio has scored five goals in all competitions for the Hammers so far this season, with two of them coming in the Premier League.
