Wolves are working on a deadline day deal to sign Renato Sanches from Lille on loan.
The 24-year-old midfielder is out for five weeks after having meniscus surgery on his right knee but Wolves are hoping to strike an agreement with an option to make the move permanent.
Sanches won the French league title with Lille last season and has revitalised his reputation after losing his form.

He won Euro 2016 with Portugal before a move from Benfica to Bayern Munich that summer.
Sanches struggled for game-time at Bayern and moved to Swansea on loan in the summer of 2017 but Sanches played just 12 games there as Swansea were relegated.
The midfielder was linked with a move to Liverpool and Arsenal earlier in the window but a move failed to materialise.

Wolves want to add a couple of players on Tuesday despite having limited funds available.
They have asked about 23-year-old Fulham centre back Tosin Adarabioyo after being rebuffed in their attempt to sign Sven Botman from Lille.
The club have also agreed to sign 17-year-old defensive midfielder Harvey Griffiths from Manchester City for £350,000.
He is well known to director of football Scott Sellars and will join the club’s U23s.
