Joao Gomes chooses to move Wolves over Lyon

Joao Gomes sends clear message to Lyon and Flamengo over Wolves transfer.
Joao Gomes wants to join Wolverhampton Wanderes

Joao Gomes of Brazil has rejected a direct offer from Olympique Lyonnais owner John Textor to join the club this winter, instead informing the American of his intention to join Premier League side Wolverhampton.

According to the report, Gomes informed Textor of his desire to join the Premier League side, which is currently fighting for survival in 17th place, during a meeting on Monday. This news comes on the heels of previous reports in the Brazilian press indicating Gomes’ desire to join Wolverhampton.

The situation has reportedly allowed Flamengo to increase the transfer fee, with Les Gones’ offer valued at €19 million versus Wolverhampton’s €17 million. Flamengo’s upcoming matches, including the Club World Cup, will not prevent a transfer from taking place before the January 31st deadline.

Joao Gomes has a contract with Flamengo until 2027, and has made 119 appearances for the club. But the national team has not yet called him to play in major squad.

Flamengo left the room from negotiations last week after accepting Lyon’s offer, which is felt sure to be marginally higher than the one agreed with Wolves. Flamengo’s refusal to respond to their calls has since irritated the Wolves.

Wolves see Gomes as the long-term replacement for Ruben Neves, whose contract with Flamengo expires in 2027. After missing out on a move last year, Neves is likely to leave Wolves next summer.
