Wolves are closing in on their third signing of the window, according to reports.

According to reports from L’Equipe (via Sport Witness), Nuno Espirito Santo’s team looks set to be signing Enzo Loiodice from Dijon in Ligue 1.

The deal is set to be a temporary one for the 19-year-old midfielder, with the club hoping to have a much closer look at him while he plays for the U23s before having a decision to make the deal permanent at the end of the campaign.

Loiodice looks an exciting prospect given that he plays for France’s U20 side and has already racked up 21 appearances in France’s top tier for his club.

Regrettably, things haven’t quite gone to plan for the central midfielder this season. After debuting in the 17/18 season, he went onto play a further 12 times in the league for his side the season afterwards, however, he has played just five games this campaign.

Previous reports have suggested that Dijon didn’t like the sound of a loan deal, yet it seems the team for the Black Country have won over those doubts.

The story goes onto state that, despite looking like he could well leave, he will be extending his current deal with the club from 2021 to 2022.

Is Enzo Loiodice a good signing?

Can we just sign a first-teamer, please?

Wolves signing a player of this calibre would be really interesting. He obviously seems a while off the standards of Joao Moutinho and Ruben Neves at this current moment, but his experience at playing in the French top-tier shows that he must be a real talent, and one which could come in useful for the club in years to come.

Furthermore, with the player having him on loan they have the option of deciding if they want him or not and will get to assess him fully, leaving it as a bit of a win-win for the club.

If this deal does come off, he will join Nigel Lonwijk and Leonardo Campana as new recruits this window, who will both also ones for the future.

This is exciting for Wolves fans, yet they might well feel they have bigger fish to fry at this stage of the season. So far, no senior player has been added – and an attacking replacement for Patrick Cutrone is definitely a big requirement.
