Wolves clinch 2nd signing in 24 hours as Fernando Marcal arrives from Lyon

Premier League outfit Wolverhampton Wanderers have this evening announced the signing of Fernando Marcal from Olympique Lyonnais.

Wolves switch

Marcal, 31, has spent the last 3 years plying his trade at the Groupama Stadium.

During this time, the Brazilian played something of a bit-part role for Lyon, generally lining out as an attack-minded left-back.

This past season, though, saw Marcal take on a surprise new role.

The former Benfica man was converted into a central-defender by Rudi Garcia, lining out and impressing as part of a 3-man unit.

He proved a crucial cog in the stellar backline which guided Lyon all the way to a Champions League semi-final berth, before Les Gones were eventually eliminated by champions Bayern Munich.

And it was this versatility which no doubt proved a key factor in convincing Marcal’s new club to swoop for his signature.

In a post across their social media platforms a short time ago, Wolves revealed that they have snapped the veteran stopper up, on a 2-year deal.

The move looks an altogether savvy one on the part of Nuno Espirito Santo’s men, with Marcal having set the club back a rumoured fee of just €2 million:

Silva arrives

Marcal’s addition actually comes as Wolves’ 2nd in the space of just 24 hours.

This comes with the Molineux outfit having last night confirmed the signing of teenage starlet Fabio Silva from Porto.

Silva’s signing, unlike that of Marcal, though, proved far from cut-price, with the prodigious attacker having set Wolves back a club-record fee:
