Wolverhampton Wanderers are close to breaking their transfer record, with Portuguese international Ruben Neves expected to sign from Porto for around £15m in the next week, according to Sky sources.
New Wolves manager Nuno Espirito Santo worked with Neves in his season at Porto, and sees him as the fulcrum around which he can build his new team.
Nuno is also trying to raid his former club to take centre-back Willy Boly on loan and hopes to have both players available for Wolves' pre-season training camp in Austria, which starts on Monday.
If the deals go through, it means the Portuguese manager will have brought in six new players since taking charge last month.
That would leave a total of 31 players in the Wolves squad and sales would need to be made to facilitate any more arrivals.
