Wolves Have A Portugal XI In Their Ranks Following The Signing Of Nelson Semedo
The 26-year-old defender, who has played 13 times for his country, has ten major honours to his name after spending three seasons at the Nou Camp, and will no doubt strengthen the Premier League side ahead of this season's campaign.
The addition of Semedo means that another Portuguese player will play at Molinuex in the coming months following the signing of club-record transfer Fabio Silva earlier this month, who joined on a five-year deal worth £35 million.
In fact, the West Midlands side can technically claim a starting XI from Portugal in their ranks, although one player, Bruno Jordao, will spend the 2020/21 season on loan at Portuguese Primeira Liga side Famalicao.
Roderick Miranda, a centre-back who has made 17 appearances for the club, is expected to complete a permanent transfer to Famalicao but remains a Wanderers player.
From the experienced heads of Joao Moutinho and Rui Patricio to the exciting trio of Fabio Silva, Daniel Podence and Vitinha in attacking areas, Wolves have a real chance of pushing for the top six this season.

Nuno Espírito Santo, meanwhile, has called for even more signings after the departure of Diego Jota to Liverpool last week.
Following the club's 3-1 league defeat to Manchester City, the manager said he wants to strengten in attacking areas.
"It's about having a squad with solutions," Nuno said.
"We feel that the players performing in that position on the pitch give us a lot of quality but at the same time we need to improve so we can be more clinical in the final moment.
"Before the transfer window closes we must improve our squad ... we must balance it better, we're working on it."
Nuno finally on Jota: "Liverpool are going to have a great player and boy, and Ki has a bright future ahead of him. We think this deal is good for everybody. Diogo was really happy here, but it's normal that players like to face new challenges." #wwfc- Joe Edwards (@JoeEdwards_Star) September 19, 2020
