Wolverhampton Wanderers have reportedly agreed a ‘deal worth £21.3m’ for Daniel Podence and the move ‘could be sealed tonight’. The 24-year-old, who is represented by Wolves’ advisor Jorge Mendes, has impressed for Olympiacos this season and is keen to make the switch to England.
Daniel Podence update:
Reports in Greece claim it is only a matter of time until Podence signs with Wolves.
A deal worthy €25million has been agreed with Olympiacos and the player could travel to the UK today.

Podence has spent 18 months at Olympiacos, making 68 appearances in all competitions while scoring and creating 27 goals. This season, he’s contributed seven goals in 15 Superleague games and has also found the back of the net twice in the Champions League.
The Portuguese winger, who can play on either flank, will be a great addition to the Wolves squad and should settle in quickly with how many countrymen are at Molineux – Rui Patricio, Ruben Vinagre, Ruben Neves, Joao Moutinho, Bruno Jordao, Diogo Jota and Pedro Neto.
Nuno Espirito Santo has been desperate to bolster Wolves’ attacking options as the Midlands outfit have been relying on reserve-team players to fill the matchday squad in recent weeks. Now, he’ll have Adama Traore, Neto, Jota and Podence at his disposal.
The 24-year-old will be Wolves’ second-most expensive signing, surpassing the £18m spent on Jonno Otto last summer.
