Wolves to pay an initial £38m with £4.2m in add-ons but personal terms yet to be finalised; Bruno Lage's side hoping to complete deal in time for him to be involved in Saturday's game at Spurs 

Wolves have agreed a club-record £42.2m deal to sign Sporting Lisbon midfielder Matheus Nunes. Bruno Lage's side will pay an initial £38m plus £4.2m in add-ons for the 23-year-old

Personal terms are yet to be finalised with Nunes but Wolves are hopeful of registering the player by midday on Friday for him to be involved in Saturday's game at Tottenham. 

The potential £42.2m deal would eclipse the £35m Wolves paid Porto two years ago for forward Fabio Silva, who has been loaned to Belgian side Anderlecht this season. 

Nunes is set to become Wolves' third summer signing after the arrivals of Portugal forward Goncalo Guedes from Valencia and Burnley defender Nathan Collins. 

Nunes, who scored in Sporting's 3-0 home win over Rio Ave on Saturday, has spent the last three-and-a-half seasons at the Lisbon club having joined from Estoril in January 2019.
