Nuno Espirito Santo’s in need of another right-back after the sale of Matt Doherty to Spurs, Semedo is undoubtedly a quality option for the Wanderers.
Semedo has made 124 appearances during his time at Barcelona, scoring twice and chipping in with 11 assists, the Portugal international played the majority of the Catalan outfit’s games last season.
Semedo will become the latest Portuguese player to sign for Wolves, the side’s agent-led recruitment style led by the relationship with Jorge Mendes has proved to be fruitful over the last couple of years.
The Portugal international turned in some encouraging performances for the Blaugrana, but the 26-year-old is one of very few assets that the side can really look to make some considerable cash on.
