Wolverhampton Wanderers midfielder João Gomes could soon be receiving some great news from Brazil.

That’s because the national team’s new manager Dorival Junior recently saw him in action, and could call him up for his first matches in charge.

Newspaper Correio today features a story pointing out that the coach watched Gomes in action at the weekend, when the Molineux side faced Tottenham Hotspur, and the midfielder scored a brace in their 2-1 win.

Besides that, it’s said Dorival Junior ‘met’ players from several clubs, including Wolves. So that could only be him and Matheus Cunha.

“These days have been productive. We’ve talked to a lot of players, learnt about physical details by watching training sessions and matches. It all makes a big difference. It helps us to clear up doubts, adapt a new player to our system and find possible fits,” said Dorival Junior.

As Gomes has been having a big improvement since joining Wolves last year, it wouldn’t be a surprise if he gets his first chance to play for the national team. Especially because he established himself as a starter for Wolves this season.

Transfermarket had his market value at €15m when he signed for Wolves, and now have it at €22m. A call-up from the national team would only be good for club and player, and that could be confirmed next week.

The first international game would be a friendly against England.
