WOLVES are close to signing Lille midfielder Renato Sanches, according to reports.
Sanches, 24, has rejuvenated his career at the Ligue 1 club and helped them to the league title last season.
And he could move to Molineux on a season-long loan deal, report The Athletic.
But Wolves are running out of time to secure a deal with the transfer deadline set to expire today.
Sanches underwent knee surgery earlier this month and Wolves would have to wait for him to recover if he does join on loan.
He is set to undertake a medical today if Wolves can reach an agreement with Lille.
Sanches has Premier League experience under his belt, but grabbed the headlines for the wrong reasons while at Swansea – passing the ball to an advertising board in a match at Stamford Bridge.
That was during a difficult period for Sanches, who had struggled for form after moving to Bayern Munich in 2016.

He has bounced back however and won back his place in the Portugal side, impressing in every one of their four matches at Euro 2020.
Wolves will hope he can make an immediate impact, with Bruno Lage's team yet to pick up a point from their opening three matches.
Liverpool have also been linked with a move for Sanches but it appears Wolves are now in pole position.
And he could slot in alongside compatriots Ruben Neves and Joao Moutinho in midfield.
