Wolves are close to signing Benfica star Talisca in a €25m deal, and reports suggested the midfielder was supposed to travel to England on Friday for medical examinations.

However, the player didn’t arrive at Wolverhampton on Friday, and the appointment of Walter Zenga could be the reason for the delay.

On Sunday, according to Portuguese newspaper O Jogo, Talisca is certainly signing for Wolves, and the player is said to have been aware of it for over a week now.

O Jogo say Talisca could travel to England anytime to complete medical examinations after ‘final details’ were sorted out.

Earlier, reports in the Portuguese media also linked Talisca with a move to Liverpool, but those reports never made sense and a move to Wolves always seemed more likely.

Wolves have made a significant investment on Talisca and would certainly be hoping he fires them to the Premier League at the end of the season.
