Report: Wolves agree £18m fee for striker Brazil boss praised for his movement and heading ability

Wolverhampton Wanderers have reportedly agreed a fee of £18million in a loan deal for Willian Jose with option to buy, according to The Sun.

Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo is believed to be on the lookout for a new striker as Raul Jimenez continues to recover from a serious head injury.

While Douglas Costa has been mentioned as a possible option, reports seem to suggest that a deal for Willian is imminent.

On Thursday, the Birmingham Mail claimed that Wolves are set to sign the 29-year-old on loan from Real Sociedad and hope to wrap the deal up early next week.

The outlet adds that Willian will need to secure a work permit to play in the Premier League but that shouldn’t be a problem due to his experience in Spain.

And The Sun has added that Wolves and Sociedad have agreed an £18million fee should they wish to take up the option of buying the Brazilian.

 

TBR View:

There is plenty of speculation suggesting Wolves and Willian are effectively a done deal.

He’d be a great acquisition for Wolves as they look to bolster their attacking ranks further in wake of Jimenez’s absence.

Willian has been at Real Sociedad since 2016 and has built up a decent tally of 62 goals and 15 assists in 170 appearances, while his 20 bookings suggest he’s not afraid to get physical.

While he’s yet to win a senior Brazil cap, he has been called up to the squad on two occasions, with Selecao coach Tite explaining his selection by telling Veja: “He’s tall, but he moves and heads a lot.”
