Wolves are set to complete the signing of Rafa Mir from Valencia, according to a report.

The Express and Star claims that Mir, 20, has agreed terms to a four-and-a-half year deal at Molineux and will make the switch to the Championship for a fee worth £1.5million.

It is understood that Real Madrid were also interested in the Spanish forward, who has been in hot form for Valencia’s reserve team this season.

The 6ft 2in colossus has scored a stunning 15 goals in 19 appearances for Valencia Mestalla, who play in the third tier of Spanish senior football.

The report adds that Wolves are still looking to sign up another striker before the end of the transfer window.

It is said that there are more players who are likely to leave the club than be signed though as Michal Zyro, Ben Marshall and Prince Oniangue could be moved on.

Football Insider verdict

Mir looks like a really exciting young striker. To have Real Madrid interested him shows a lot about how talented the youngster is and at the age of 20, he is no doubt going to get better and better as the seasons go by. It will be interesting to see whether Nuno Espirito Santo places Mir straight into his first-team. Leo Bonatini has struggled to find the net recently with just two goals since mid-November. Due to the lack of striker options at Molineux the Brazilian has been playing up front regardless. With another option like Mir, Nuno has the chance to rotate and try out other options. Mir is a very physical forward who looks like he could be perfect for the Premier League in a few years.
