Barcelona winger Francisco Trincao has joined Wolves on a one-season loan with an option to make the deal permanent, the Spanish club announced on Sunday.
The 21-year-old is Barca’s latest hope to leave the club this summer, with defender Jean-Clair Todibo and winger Konrad De La Fuente having left Camp Nou on permanent contracts.

Trincao has made 43 appearances for Barca since arriving from Braga for â¬ 31million 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.”
Tirincao is the first signing of new Wolves manager Bruno Lage, who arrived after Nuno Espirito Santo left at the end of last season before becoming Tottenham boss on Wednesday.
