The most Portuguese Wolves

Nelson Semedo is the last Portuguese to arrive at Wolverhampton. The full-back has already been made official by the Premier League team, which will pay Barcelona a total of 30 million euros plus 10 in variables for taking over his services. Semedo thus becomes the tenth Portuguese in the first team squad.

The group of Nuno Espírito Santo, also Portuguese, and of course also represented by Jorge Mendes, continues to undertake signings from their environment fruit of the participation that the owner of the club has in Gestifute, the representation company of Mendes. Not in vain, the second shirt this season is in maroon, so typical of Portugal.

Before Semedo, one of the last to arrive was Fabio Silva, 18, for whom they paid 40 million to Porto despite having only played 180 minutes in the league with the Portuguese champion. He has already had time to debut with the Wolves, yes, along with his compatriots Rui Patricio, Roderick, Vinagre, Neves, Moutinho, Podence, Vitinha and Neto.

If he proposed it, Wolverhampton could mount an eleven full of Portuguese, only in the absence of a central. The rest of the positions would be covered.

The one who is no longer in the team is Jota, the last great transfer of the Wolves, since Liverpool has paid around 50 million euros for the former Atlético de Madrid.

In fact, Wolverhampton has practically entered the same as what has been spent in this transfer market, Because the sales of Jota, Hélder Costa and Doherty make more than 80 million in cash, money that they have reinvested in Fabio Silva, Marcal, Vitinha, Ki-Jana Hoever and Nelson Semedo himself. Future signings to maintain the level of the squad.

The Wolves only need a title to confirm them as one of the strongest projects in England. After his participation in the last Europa League, the icing on the cake would be to play metal this season, two years after his promotion from Championship.
