Wolves sign Nelson Semedo from Barcelona for €30m

Wolves have completed the signing of Barcelona and Portugal right-back Nelson Semedo for an initial €30m.

Barcelona could receive a further €10m in variables for Semedo, 26, taking the total fee to €40m.

€2m will be due after Semedo makes 10 appearances and a further €8m if Wolves qualify for the Europa League.

Semedo has penned a three-year contract with Wolves having the option to add two years to his deal.

Wolves executive chairman Jeff Shi recognised the importance of the signing.

“It isn’t often that we have the opportunity to sign a world-class player from a world-class club,” Shi said.

Semedo made 126 appearances for Barca after arriving from Benfica in 2017.

The roving full-back is the tenth player from Portugal to join the Wolves first team.

“Last year they did a very good season and it’s a very important team in England, in also Europe,” Semedo said. “I hope this year we can do very good things.

“Coach Nuno is a very good coach. He did very good things here in Wolves, and in other teams too. For sure I’m going to learn a lot from him.”
