Wolverhampton Wanderers will reportedly announce the signings of Sporting Lisbon goalkeeper Rui Patricio and Benfica forward Raul Jimenez next week.

Wolverhampton Wanderers have reportedly moved to the brink of announcing the double signing of Rui Patricio and Raul Jimenez.

The newly-promoted Premier League side have already confirmed the additions of Willy Boly, Diogo Jota and Benik Afobe after successful loan spells and it now appears that the West Midlands outfit are pushing forward with plans to strengthen Nuno Espirito Santo's squad.

According to O Jogo, Patrico and Jimenez will arrive from Sporting Lisbon and Benfica during the early part of next week.

Patricio has been strongly linked with Wolves after a falling out at Sporting, and although a conflict over the potential release from his contract could rumble on, Wolves appear ready to push forward to bring in the Portugal international.

Jimenez has failed to establish himself as a regular at Benfica since joining from Atletico Madrid in 2015, but the Mexico international has still managed 18 goals from 20 starts and 60 substitute outings in the league.

The 27-year-old - who still has two years remaining on his contract - is expected to sign on a season-long loan deal.
