Trincao joined Barcelona in 2020 after a successful campaign at Portuguese club Braga, where he scored nine goals and set up a further 13 in all competitions, which earned him a switch to the Camp Nou.

He is new Wolves manager Bruno Lage's second signing of the close season following the arrival of Colombian defender Yerson Mosquera last month.
