Wolves reach a deal to bring a former Southampton player to the Premier League

Wolves are close to bringing former Southampton star Mario Lemina back to the Premier League, according to sources who spoke with “allfootballleague.”

The 29-year-old, who previously played for Marseille and Juventus, left the Saints for Nice in the summer of 2021. However, 18 months later, he returned to England.

Wolves have reportedly agreed to pay Nice approximately £9.5 million for the Gabon international. Lemina is currently scheduled to arrive in England for his medical examination at Molineux, and he could be signed before the weekend.

Wolves have already acquired Matheus Cunha from Atletico Madrid this month, but they still want to acquire defenders. Cunha’s former teammate Felipe and West Ham’s Craig Dawson, a player they attempted to sign in the summer, have been contacted.

New Wolves head coach Julen Lopetegui desires to bolster his roster ahead of the crucial second half of the season and insists that the club is actively working.

The Spaniard stated, “Their support is the best signing, but we will try to improve the roster because we need new players.”

“However, until the new players arrive, we must focus on the players currently on the roster. We must always support them in the same manner. We are working and concentrating on our daily tasks while searching for the next possible match.

Similarly, the club is attempting to balance the team better. We need to improve and add players to certain positions because we have four tough matches in the next 10 days. If we do not share this (workload), it will be detrimental to the players and the club. They recognize this and are attempting to attract more participants.”
