Nuno Espirito Santo’s side have been keen to bring in a right-back having sold the Irish international to Tottenham.
And after selling Diogo Jota to Liverpool for £45million ($80 million AUD), the club have the funds to spend big.
SunSport reported on Saturday how the Blaugrana are looking to bring in Ajax ace Sergino Dest with Semedo on his way out of the Nou Camp for around £40m ($71 million AUD).
Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano has claimed that it is Wolves that are in pole position to secure the 26-year-old’s services.
He also revealed how Chilean midfielder Arturo Vidal will be joining Semedo out the door in Catalonia.
Romano tweeted: “Wolves are ‘one step away’ from signing Nelson Semedo.
“New bid submitted yesterday and Barcelona are now ready to accept.
“Work in progress also on personal terms to be agreed.
“On next hours Barca are gonna sell Semedo to #Wolves and Vidal to #Inter. Here we go soon!”

Liverpool showed Chelsea still have far to go to challenge the champions for the Premier League title as Sadio Mane took advantage of a first-half red card shown to Andreas Christensen to score both goals in a 2-0 win at Stamford Bridge.
Mane provoked the Dane’s dismissal and then headed the Reds into the lead before pouncing on another terrible error from the Blues’ goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga.

Commentator Andy Townsend had nothing to offer but “bloody hell” when he reflected on the $127 million flop’s all-time howler.
At the other end, Alisson Becker also proved the value of a good goalkeeper as he saved Jorginho’s penalty 15 minutes from time to deny the Blues a lifeline.
Victory takes Liverpool level on points with Everton, Arsenal and Crystal Palace at the top of the table as the only sides with maximum points from their opening two games.
