Wolves have signed Leo Bonatini on a season-long loan from Al Hilal.
The Brazilian forward has passed a medical on Monday ahead of his move to the Sky Bet Championship club.
Bonatini, who scored 15 goals last season for the Saudi Arabian side, becomes manager Nuno Espírito Santo's 11th signing of the summer.
The 23-year-old previously spent time at Portuguese side Estoril, where he scored 20 goals in 37 matches.
"It is a dream for me to play here and to live here - it is an amazing country," he told the club's website. "I have played in other countries already and the experience I had in Saudi Arabia was very good.
"The staff here are already trying to help me with everything and I am sure it will go well. It is a new change and all the time you feel you have the butterflies in the stomach - that is normal.
"Then when you go inside the pitch for the first time it is normal again and then I will feel very happy to have a big opportunity. It is a big club and is also famous in Brazil, and I am very excited to play here.
"It is a dream to play in the Championship but even more in the Premier League and we can put our names in the history of this club if we achieve it.
"When you come to a new club all the time you always want to put your name in the history. I am not here to be more than anyone else - I am here to be a part of it with my team-mates and at the end of this season hopefully we are in the first league."
