Joao Gomes: Wolves sign midfielder on a five-and-a-half-year deal from Flamengo

Flamengo midfielder Joao Gomes has been signed by Wolves on a five-and-a-half-year deal

Brazilian midfielder Joao Gomes has left Flamengo for Wolves, where he will play for the next five and a half years.

The 21-year-old has joined Wanderers for a rumored £15 million, making him Julen Lopetegui's sixth acquisition.

Wolves, who outbid French team Lyon to sign Gomes, have the option to extend his contract by one more year, pending the issuance of a work permit and clearance from the international community.

He scored once in 86 league games for his hometown team, winning the Copa Libertadores in 2022.

Gomes made his professional debut in November 2020, but since then, he has won the Brazilian Serie A league championship and domestic cup with Flamengo.

Since Lopetegui assumed leadership, he has joined Mario Lemina, Pablo Sarabia, Matheus Cunha, Craig Dawson, and Daniel Bentley in traveling to Molineux.

By earning seven out of a possible 15 points under the Spaniard, Wolves have moved up to 17th in the Premier League, outside the relegation zone on goal differential.
