Wolves to sign €25m Paulinho after outbidding Lazio

Wolves are closing in on the €25m (£22.5m) signing of SC Braga striker Paulinho, according to Gianluca Di Marzio.

27-year-old Paulinho is also on Lazio’s list of targets, but his future appears to be in England.

Paulinho has been expected to join a Premier League club, always suspected to be Wolves, but never certain until now.

The super-agent Jorge Mendes, who has close ties to Wolves, is leading negotiations for the deal.

Wolves have offered €25m for Paulinho, much higher than the €15m bid that Lazio had rejected by Braga.

Paulinho joined Braga from Gil Vicente in 2017 and has scored 53 goals for the club.

In the 2019-20 season, he found the net 25 times in all competitions and delivered nine assists.
