Portuguese wide player Rodrigo Gomes has joined Wolverhampton Wanderers on a five-year contract (with the option to extend by 12 months) from Braga in his homeland in a deal worth €15million (£12.7m).

Here’s a glimpse of how he fared in The Athletic’s transfer ranking system…

Financial value rating — 62/100

Potential and promise are the buzzwords circling Gomes, with O’Neil calling him a “perfect signing” to be developed.

The £12.7million needed to conclude a deal with Braga is a sizeable sum given his lack of experience, but rival interest from Spain’s Champions League regulars Atletico Madrid underlined the youngster’s talent.

Risk or reward? — 68/100

Having signed under the weight of relatively little expectation, Gomes appears a sensible recruit for Wolves.

With Gomes now having experienced three league seasons across the Portuguese first and third divisions, Wolves will be encouraged that he has not yet missed any time on the pitch through injury.

He is versatile and capable of playing in four positions across both wings — a valuable quality, given O’Neil rotates systems frequently.
