Wolverhampton Wanderers are nearing the signing of Paraguayan winger Enso González in a deal worth around £5 million, according to numerous reputable reports.
The 18-year-old, who has spent the last two seasons breaking through at Club Libertad in Primera División Clausura, could follow in the footsteps of a recent Premier League award winner.
Wolves fans will be all too familiar with Brighton & Hove Albion forward Julio Enciso after he ran riot at Molineux just a couple of weeks ago, and now the Old Gold might have their own Paraguayan gem.
Enciso also came through at Libertad and joined the Seagulls in 2022 for just a few million more than what González is expected to cost Wanderers.
Still just 19 years of age, Enciso has made his mark in the Premier League with four goals, four assists, and, most importantly, last campaign’s goal of the season.
Gary O’Neil’s side will be hoping they can get a similar return out of González as The Athletic reports they are very close to completing the formalities of the transfer.
Meanwhile, freelance Paraguayan journalist Roberto Rojas claims “all signs indicate he will join Wolves” after the player flew into the UK to put pen to paper on a five-year contract.
González, born in 2005, predominantly plays on the left flank or as a number 10 but is also comfortable on the right. The 18-year-old has scored three and assisted two in 39 Libertad appearances.
Meanwhile, Man City approach rejected
In other Wolves transfer news, it appears Manchester City will be unsuccessful in their pursuit of Matheus Nunes with the Old Gold standing their ground despite an offer of £55 million being received.
BirminghamWorld revealed last week that Wanderers were unwilling to let any more key players go this summer, including Nunes. “I’m sure the situation will be resolved,” O’Neil said via BBC Sport.
