Nelson Semedo to be sold by Barcelona
Barcelona is reportedly in talks to offload Semedo and a deal for the Portuguese international could be close. Wolves seem to be the most interested party and are favorites to land the right-back, according to reports in Spain.
The full-back came through the ranks with Benfica. He made his senior debut in August 2015 before becoming a regular in the first-team. He shined with Benfica and his impressive form did not go unnoticed and was quickly approached by Barcelona. Semedo signed for FC Barcelona in July 2017. The deal was closed for a fee of around €30.5m plus add-ons.
The 2019-20 season was a horrific one for Barcelona. But Semedo was consistently in the side and he made over 40 appearances in all competitions for the Catalans.
Semedo made his international debut in 2015 and he has been capped 13 times for the national team, Portugal.
Now after 3 seasons with the Catalans, Semedo looks to be on his way out of the Nou Camp. Multiple media outlets are reporting his move could be made official soon.
