Wolves have signed winger Helder Costa from Portuguese giants Benfica on a season-long loan.
The Portugal Under-23 international, 22, spent last season on loan at Monaco and is the Championship club’s first signing since Chinese investors Fosun International completed their takeover.
Wolves say they are also close to a deal for another Portuguese player – Atletico Madrid defender Silvio.
They also confirm the club’s interest in another Benfica midfielder, Pele.
Wolves’ only previous summer signing was goalkeeper Andy Lonergan from fellow Championship club Fulham on a two-year contract.
Wolves have also confirmed that striker Nouha Dicko will not be fit for the start of the season.
