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

Trincao has made 43 appearances for Barca since joining from Braga for €31 million last year, scoring two goals and three assists.
The Portugal U-21 international has six senior caps, although he was not included 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 side.

“We’ve watched him a lot, especially over 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 loads of quality — signing for Barcelona from Braga shows what potential he’s got. He’s 21 and has played quite a lot of games in La Liga, so we think he’s ready for the Premier League.”
Wolves are searching for a new manager after Nuno Espirito Santo left at the end of last season before becoming the Tottenham boss on Wednesday.
