Wolves are in the process of completing a deal for Portimonense striker Shoya Nakajima for a fee in the region of €20m, according to reports in Portugal.

Nakajima has been one of the highlights of the Liga NOS since his arrival in Portuguese football last season from Japanese side FC Tokyo.

According to BOLA, Nuno Espirito Santo's side are in the 'final stages' of negotiations to sign the Japanese international and claim that the transfer could be 'implemented at any time'.


The report adds that the 24-year-old has a contract valid until 2020 and with a release clause of €40m, but Wolves are set to lure the striker to Molineux for almost half that.

Robson Ponte, vice president of Portimonense said (as quoted by BOLA): "The interest has been enormous, so it will be difficult to secure it, but we will only release him for an irrefutable proposal."

Nakajima began his career with Japanese J2 League side Tokyo Verdy in 2012, before earning a move to top-flight club FC Tokyo two years later. 

The Japanese star went on to make 68 appearances in total for the side and scored 13 times, with his form being spotted by Portimonense in 2017. 

After starring in his first season in Portuguese football, Nakajima capped off his senior international debut with Japan by scoring a last-minute equaliser against Mali in a friendly last March.

The 24-year-old's potential arrival at Wolves will add to the already strong Portuguese based contingent at the club, with the likes of Rui Patricio, Ruben Neves, Joao Moutinho, Helder Costa, Raul Jimenez and Diogo Jota all having plied their trade in the Liga NOS
