Wolves Ace Rodrigo Gomes in Advanced Talks with Atletico Madrid for £12.7m Transfer

A potential Wolves signing, Rodrigo Gomes, is on the brink of joining a Champions League club for a bargain fee. Despite Wolves’ mediocre performance last season, fans are hopeful for the future under manager Gary O’Neil.

Gomes, who shined on loan at Estoril, was a prime target for Wolves to bolster their squad for the upcoming season. However, recent reports suggest that the 20-year-old is close to sealing a £12.7 million move to Atletico Madrid.

While Wolves were keen on securing Gomes’ services, Atletico seems to have won the race for the talented forward. His impressive stats of nine goals and eight assists in the previous season caught the attention of several clubs, including Wolves.

Although it’s a setback for Wolves to miss out on Gomes, the allure of Champions League football at Atletico likely played a significant role in his decision. Despite the disappointment, Wolves fans acknowledge Gomes’ potential and his attributes that could have benefitted the team under O’Neil’s management.
