Joao Gomes rejects Lyon in favour of Wolves transfer in 2023

Wolves are set to complete the signing of Joao Gomes in the coming days, after an attempt to hijack the transfer by Lyon. The French side had tried to reach an agreement with Flamengo themselves, but could not persuade the player. 

He was committed to joining Wolves in the Premier League, and is expected to complete the switch by the end of the transfer window. The Midlands club will receive a fee worth €17 million, and he will be signing a deal of five years until June 2028. 

Joao Gomes chooses to join Wolves after Lyon hijack attempt 

After Chelsea hijacking Arsenal’s pursuit of Mykhaylo Mudryk and Tottenham hijacking Everton’s Arnaut Danjuma deal, Lyon could have been the next in line to complete a hijacked deal. 

However, the player was always committed to playing at the Molineux. And he will get his wish once he completes the medicals and the other formalities for the move.

Wolves have signed Matheus Cunha, Pablo Sarabia, Mario Lemina and Craig Dawson during the January transfer window to bolster their squad. And Joao Gomes will soon be added to that list. They are currently in a battle to survive in the Premier League, and are only ahead on goal difference. 

With Julen Lopetegui trusted with plenty of new signings recently, the board will be expecting a better performance during the second half of the season.
