Rafa Mir has completed a full transfer to Sevilla from Premier League side Wolves.
The Spain youth international had been attracting reported interest from LaLiga giants Barcelona and Atletico Madrid after starring for Spain at Tokyo 2020 but it is Sevilla who have won the race for his signature.
Mir has signed a six-year deal with Julen Lopetegui’s side and will wear the number 12 shirt. He played in all of Spain’s fixtures at the Games as La Roja reached the final where they were beaten by Brazil in the gold medal match.
The 24-year-old, who has been on the books at Wolves since 2018 but has spent each of the past three seasons out on loan, scored hat-trick in a 5-2 win over the Ivory Coast.
He had spent the previous season-and-a-half on loan at Huesca, scoring nine goals in a successful promotion push in 2019-20, before netting 13 times in LaLiga last term.
Mir is Sevilla’s fifth signing of the transfer window, after Erik Lamela, Gonzalo Montiel, Marko Dmitrovic and Ludwig Augustinsson.
