Wolverhampton Wanderers have announced the signing of midfielder Mario Lemina from Nice.
Lemina's transfer includes a further 12-month option for the club.
“He has to be a very complete player, with and without the ball. I think without the ball he’s a very strong player, and he knows his job," Wolves head coach Julen Lopetegui told the club's official website.
“With the ball, he has enough technically to play and to understand the play.
"Of course, we have never worked together, but now I’m going to know more about him and he has to know about us.”
If the required completed documents were submitted by midday Friday, the Gabon international could make his Wolves debut when they host West Ham United on Saturday.
