Trincao has made 43 appearances for Barca since Braga joining for 31 million euros last year, scoring two goals and three assists.

The Portugal U-21 international has six senior caps, although he was not included in his country’s Euro 2020 squad. He joins a strong Portuguese contingent at Wolves, having played alongside six of his new teammates in the national team.

“We’ve watched him a lot, especially in the last couple of months, so he’s been on our radar for quite a while,” Wolves technical director Scott Sellars said in a statement.

“He’s got a lot of quality – signing for Barcelona from Braga shows his potential. He’s 21 and has played quite a few La Liga games so we think he’s ready for the Premier League.”

Wolves are looking for a new manager after Nuno Espirito Santo left at the end of last season before become the boss of Tottenham Wednesday.
