Wolves have agreed a deal to sign Willian Jose on loan from Real Sociedad, according to reports from Spain.

Willian Jose has been linked with the likes of Tottenham in recent months, but has fallen down the pecking order in the Basque Country this season.

Therefore, La Real are not opposed to him leaving and have already identified potential striker signings of their own.

They are now preparing to send the Brazilian on loan to Wolves, who have been looking for cover for Raul Jimenez.

The Mexico striker has been out of action since fracturing his skull in November. Naturally, patience is required before he can think about returning to the pitch.

Therefore, Wolves want to bring in a striker to provide cover this month and they may have found their man.

According to SER Deportivos Gipuzkoa, the Molineux side have agreed to take Willian Jose on loan for the rest of the season. They will have the option to buy him permanently.

The 29-year-old has scored 60 goals in four-and-a-half seasons with his current club. Now, Wolves will be hoping to make the most of his talents.

Wolves had to act quickly

Sky Sports also confirm that Wolves are long-term admirers of Willian Jose and have been considering a bid for some time. They were not the only suitor for the forward and had to swoop in to beat the likes of Marseille to his signature.

According to The Athletic, they have also decided to act now after losing their last two games in the Premier League. They need reinforcements to reverse their fortunes for the better.

Wolves also recently re-called Patrick Cutrone from his loan spell with Fiorentina in order to bolster their attacking options. The Italian has since made two substitute appearances in the Premier League and one in the FA Cup.

Willian Jose would be a more experienced reinforcement, though, and it appears Wolves are now closing in on his signature.
